about

13 previously unreleased tracks recorded prior to 1995's landmark "Blue Moods Of Spain" album by the band Spain. Includes a song from the last ever demo recorded by Spain bassist/vocalist Josh Haden's '80s SST punk band Treacherous Jaywalkers, as well as songs, recorded on a 4-track cassette deck by Haden and original Spain guitarist Ken Boudakian, which informed and helped shape the music on "Blue Moods". Also includes a song recorded in practice session by the original pre-1994 Spain line-up. Attached is an exclusive-to-Bandcamp 20-page .pdf file with liner notes written by Josh Haden, archival photos, song descriptions, album credits, and lyrics. The .pdf file is not available with this album from iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, or any other digital music retailer.

All of the songs in this collection are demo recordings, in most cases recorded directly to multi-track cassette tapes in the early 1990s, mastered to other cassette tapes, and stored in a box for over 15 years. Tape hiss and other audio anomalies can be heard on most if not all of the tracks.

Released by Diamond Soul Recordings, a record label founded in 2004 by Spain bassist/vocalist Josh Haden. Every penny you spend purchasing a Diamond Soul product, after fees and taxes, goes back into the production of future Josh Haden and Josh Haden-affiliated releases.

Track Name: Treacherous Jaywalkers - Phone Call
Phone Call

She said she was feeling down
That’s why she called me up
She said she was feeling down
That’s why she called me up

She said she was feeling all alone
Sitting by the telephone

She said she was feeling down
That’s why she called me up

She said she found her a man
That’s what she said
She said she found her a man
That’s what she said

She told me he couldn’t feel no pain
She told me he was the pouring rain

She said she found her a man
That’s what she said

She said she was feeling down
That’s why she called me up
She said she was feeling down
That’s why she called me up

She said she was feeling all alone
Sitting by the telephone

She said she was feeling down
That’s why she called me up

Track Name: So Far Away From You
So Far Away From You

My love for you is like fire
And I cannot put it out
Even though it gives me
So much pain

My love for you is like the ocean
And it cannot be contained
Even though it makes me
Feel so empty

Love makes me so confused
I don’t know what to do
I don’t want to think its over

Love makes me feel so much
But it keeps me from your touch
Love makes me feel so far away
From you

My love for you is like a mountain
And I cannot bring me down
Even though the air is so
Hard to breathe

My love for you is like the sunshine
And it makes things seem so bright
Even though those things are so
Hard to see

What love puts me through
What I never knew
When love leaves me feeling
So sad

Love makes me feel so much
But it keeps me from your touch
Love makes me feel so far away
From you

Track Name: Gonna Die Song
Gonna Die Song

I feel like an airplane baby
So far up above
I’m so glad
I can fly, I can fly, I can fly

I feel like a bird now baby
With wings so wide
I can soar
Through the sky, through the sky, through the sky

I feel the wind on my face now baby
I’m over the trees
I feel good
I’m so high, I’m so high, I’m so high

I’m so high in the sky now baby
And I’m not coming down
‘Cuz if I do
I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die

I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die

I’m closing in on the sun now baby
I’m getting real hot
I’m so glad
I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying

I’m soaring through the clouds now baby
I’m so free
I can glide, I can glide, I can glide

I feel the wind on my face now baby
I’m over the trees
I feel good
I’m so high, I’m so high, I’m so high

I’m so high in the sky now baby
And I’m not coming down
‘Cuz if I do
I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die

I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die
I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die

Track Name: To The Sea
To The Sea

I don’t want to be anyone
I just want to live ‘til the day is done
I just want to drift away
To the sea, to the sea, to the sea
And I hope I’ll never reach the land again

I don’t want to see anymore
I just want to float evermore
I just want to drift away
With the waves, with the waves, with the waves
And I hope I’ll never reach the land again

I just want to drift away
To the sea, to the sea, to the sea
And I hope I’ll never reach the land again

Track Name: Will Never Change
Will Never Change

There’s a broken window in my house
Its letting the cold air come right on in
I can only wonder why the window shattered
But its wintertime and I think it won’t shut again

And I’m afraid
That this season
Will never change
Will never change
Will never change

Sitting by my window
Watching the rain come right in
In every cold drop
I see reflections of myself

Watching the rain fall
Through a window that’s but a frame
In this wintertime
I don’t think I’ll see the sun again

And I’m afraid
That this season
Will never change
Will never change
Will never change

Track Name: Long Gone
Long Gone

When the sun
Decides to rise up in the morning
And say hello

When the sun
Stretches out its arms
And winks at me early in the morn

I’ll be long gone
I’ll be long gone
I’ll be long gone

When my girl
Decides to throw her arms around me
And say she’s mine

When my girl
Throws her worries to the wind
And says I’m fine

When my girl
Unfurls
I won’t have no time for that
I’ll have already left on my track

When my girl
Decides to love me every day
And all the time

I’ll be long gone
I’ll be long gone
I’ll be long gone

When the sun
Soars so high up in the sky
And looks so bright

When the sun
Arrives to burn
Says every day will be alright

I’ll be long gone
I’ll be long gone
I’ll be long gone

Track Name: Love That I Have Lost
Love That I Have Lost

I’ll put away my sadness
And I will find it disappears
I’ll put away my madness
And I will find that I can think
I’ll put away my gladness
And I will find that I can fall asleep

And dream of the love
That I have lost

I’ll put away the good times
And I will find they evaporate
I’ll put away the bad times
And I will find my innocence
I’ll put away the meantimes
And I will find the time to fall asleep

And dream of the love
That I have lost

Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey

I’m so happy
That I opened my eyes
To see the world
Through my cloud of lies

I’m so happy Lord
I’m so glad
To see the things
I can never have

Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey

I’m so happy
That I can see
All the walls closing in on me

I’m so happy man
Now that I know
Of all the places I never go

Of all the places I never go
Of all the places I never go

I’m so happy
That I opened my eyes
To see that I have made me blind

I’m so happy Lord
I can just cry
And sing this song
‘Til the end of time

Track Name: It Could Be Heaven
It Could Be Heaven

It could be heaven
Up there
Up above the sky
Lord says there’s a place for me
After I’m through with this life
After I’m through with this life

It could be heaven
You know
Where I’ll watch the river flow
Lord how I hope and prey
That’s a place I can go
That’s a place I can go
That’s a place I can go

Where I can go
Where I can go

It could be heaven
Up there
Up above the sky
Lord says there’s a place for me
After I’m through with this life
After I’m through with this life

It could be heaven
You know
Where I’ll watch the river flow
Lord how I hope and prey
That’s a place I can go
That’s a place I can go
That’s a place I can go

Where I can go
Where I can go

Track Name: White Sand
White Sand

I believe in nothing
I really think its something
I watch the world turn around me

I believe in something
I really think its nothing
I watch the world turn without me

And in the sand
In the white sand
In the white sand
We’ll make love
In the white sand

I believe in something
I really think its nothing
I watch the world turn without me

And in the sand
In the white sand
In the white sand
We’ll make love
In the white sand

Track Name: I Could Be (The Only One)
I Could Be (The Only One)

I could be the only one
Who thinks about you
All day long
Who falls asleep at night
All alone

The day rolls in
The day rolls on

And I could be the only one

I could be the only one
Who thinks about you
As the clouds pass along
But to another man
You’ve gone
You’ve gone

The clouds roll in
The clouds roll on

And I could be the only one

I could be the only one
Who thinks about you
All day long
Who falls asleep at night
All alone

The day rolls in
The day rolls on

And I could be the only one

Track Name: Waking Song
Waking Song

How can I know
If its the morning
Or the shadow

How can I see
The sunshine
Through my window

Every time I try to wake
Its time to go to sleep
Every time I try to sleep
Its time to wake up

How can the day
Turn to nighttime
With these shadows

How can the night
Brighten the clouds
Through my window

Every time I try to wake
Its time to go to sleep
Every time I try to sleep
Its time to wake up

Every time I try to wake
Its time to go to sleep
Every time I try to sleep
Its time to wake up

Its time to wake up
Its time to wake up
