Guaranteed to make you want to stand in the middle of Walk-All-Ways, join hands with your fellow West Seattleites and sway gently (or not-so-gently depending on what you’ve been up to) while singing along … it’s “We Are The Junction” – as announced/explained by Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor) proprietor Jeff Gilbert:

A Christmas album compilation made by West Seattle musicians for West Seattle

CD Release Party, Saturday, December 5th, 8 PM, The Feedback Lounge, right after the West Seattle Tree Lighting Ceremony.

Conceived by Jeff Gilbert, Steve Adams and Dave Blackburn, “We Are The Junction” is a West Seattle Christmas compilation featuring West Seattle musicians/bands. All proceeds from sales of the album are being donated to the West Seattle Food Bank.

  3. Here’s a thumbs-up to those behind this new CD, who have the initiative to exercise a little creativity in the holiday album context, rather than the endless string of cookie-cutter CDs we too often see. The LawTunes salute such efforts, and seek to follow in even a small way in such footsteps, as evidenced by our latest lawyer holiday gift album, “Season’s Briefings From The LawTunes.” You can hear clips at http://www.LawTunes.com. Thanks again for letting us know about this unique release.

  4. Earth, Wind, and Steve. Again!

    Trivia: When I was doing the artwork for the first Visqueen album, the band wanted to title it “Earth, Wind, and Steve.” After some deliberation I convinced them that “King Me” made more sense…but you’ll see ‘Earth, Wind, and Steve” on the spine of that CD.

    Never let a good idea die!
