Grace Buford – Dancing in the Garden of Freedom (Remix by Doxent Zsigmond)

This one brings back good memories 🙂

Those were the times when I went with my friends to a Grace Buford (Cylindrian Rutabaga) live concert in SL. Nothing could beat this. We were promoting Grace’s music and she played our favourite originals. Here is my top favourite, my all-time favourite, remixed by my good friend Doxii. These days, neither Doxii nor Grace nor I frequent SL but we are always happy to catch one of Grace’s rare gigs online.

Dig the stones from the earth
and pile them on the side,
one by one,
Skilfully crafting a wall
to keep the outside on the outside.
Throw away all the the bitter fruit of yesterday
and fertilize the soul with forgiveness
so love can abide in this garden.

And I don’t want to go
from the place I found my soul.
See my freedom dance through the waves of green and gold.

Water the seeds with tears
from the guilt of all those silent years.
How fragile are the first shoots
as they reach for the warmth of the sun
so love will abide in this garden.

The following line is from my all-time favourite song. I am afraid it won’t be recorded anytime soon but Cylindrian Rutabaga sings it every time she spots me in the audience. She is such a sweetheart.

“Throw away all the bitter fruits of yesterday and fertilize the soil with forgiveness, so love can abide in this garden…” (Grace Buford – Dancing in the Garden of Freedom)

Suzen JueL -Untitled #13

Suzen JueL released her new album “Untitled #13” some weeks ago. Yes, I know, I am late on this…. 😛

She was searching for a title but then decided to name it “Untitled #13” and I like it. Reminds me of Living Room #13.

As soon as I get hold of the tracklist, I post it here.

The CD isn’t available on iTunes (yet) but you can purchase it from her website.  Please follow this link.

Grace Buford – Cylindrian Virtually Live

Being the proud owner of an AUTOGRAPHED  CD “Cylindrian Virtually Live”
I just have to blog about it, and it’s about time I did because the CD is available only a limited time. And right now, Grace is informing me there are only 4 copies left, so you better hurry up! 😛

The CD contains LIVE recordings of Grace Buford’s performances in the VIRTUAL world of Second Life where she is known as CYLINDRIAN Rutabaga (Cyl), so the title of the CD “Cylindrian Virtually Live” is quite obvious.

The following tracks are on the CD:
I’ll Be Fine
Bad Weather Friend
Ruby
Dont Recognize the Girl
Into the Water
Fallen out of Love
This Dream
Under the Moon
Black Water Rising
See You Soon
Plain Jane

My favourite is by far “Bad Weather Friend” – Strings, lyrics and vocals are just gorgeous.

Go to Grace’s Myspace page to order the CD, it’s only 11US$ incl shipping
within the US. The CD will be sold out soon, but Grace will make it available on iTunes, Rhapsody and Napster in about 3 to 4 weeks. I will post the links as soon as I get them.
