Of all the species of salmon that fill the rivers and streams here in Alaska, my favorite to catch is the sockeye.  So I wrote this song about the life and death of this tasty fish.

Feeling Like A Rock - (3:46) BMI

My friend Jim Lovell (not the astronaut) was a fisherman in Kodiak at the time of the great Alaskan earthquake back in 1964.  This song is a true account of Jim's harrowing adventure as he survived the largest earthquake to hit the North American continent in our recorded history and the tidal wave that followed it.

William Wallace - (4:49) BMI
Mike Campbell - lead/harmony vocals & acoustic guitar. Stu Schulman - drum programming, keyboard, electric bass, Hammond organ.  Heather Adrian - violin.
This song was inspired by the movie "Braveheart".  After watching it I guess my Scottish heritage came out of hiding.  Thanks Mel.


About the cover: The artwork on the cover is a stone lithography print entitled "Susan D", done by my father, Charles W. Campbell in 1980. Susan D is my sister, and I have always thought that she had the saddest eyes I had ever seen in this print.  She is much happier now.
