Top 7 Reasons You NEED to own “BARE TONES.”
Your Input: Goosebump Moments!
We all have them… those moments in a song that make us go, “OH YEAH!” Those tingly instances.
Here’s a couple of examples…
For Bobby, after the solo break in the Led Zeppelin song “Heartbreaker” has come to an orgasmic stop, that “space” just before Robert Plant starts singing the words: “Work so hard I couldn’t unwind...” Bobby says you can feel that tension from the band ready to explode… just before they come back in. He loves that.
For Andy, in the Beatles song “I Want You (She’s So Heavy),” after the FIRST “She’s so…..” and following that first organ fill, the band comes back singing, in harmony, the word “Heavy.” Then, they repeat the word three more times, overlapping. That FIRST “heavy,” after the harmonized singing, is the one that gets Andy’s hair standing on end.
Little moments like that. Fleeting. Magical.

To HELL with the negative
Honestly, you can pretty much go anywhere and feel the hate of knee-jerk tribalism weaving its way into everything. “Hooray for our side!” is pretty much all we hear about anything anymore. Even if you have “taken a side,” no matter your battle, there HAVE to be places to go to escape all that. At least, there should be.
To just be… and enjoy things.
That’s why we do this newsletter.
And we thank you for coming back each week.

Elm Treason LIVE – “With You”
We posted this on our Facebook Page on Thursday afternoon:
#ThrowbackThursday #TBT – Today, something extra special!
Not a throwback, but a look FORWARD!
It’s LIVE Elm Treason, banging out the song “WITH YOU” from our new release “BARE TONES.”
We’ve been plugging this new LIVE album for almost two weeks now, so we figured it was time to give you a full song preview.
This song originally appears on our debut album DAYS OF REACTION. This version is a kickin’ two-man jam, performed just as we do it when we play out.
The audio is mixed and mastered. Three cameras captured the jam.
This tune, taken from the DVD/BluRay issue of BARE TONES, features some wicked lead work by Bobby… and a groove that cooks. We are definitely IN THE ZONE.
BARE TONES – the full 15 song performance – is available RIGHT NOW on CD, Vinyl, DVD, Bluray and digital download. Special collector’s bonus packages available, too!
If you dig what we do on #ThrowbackThursdays and you like what you see here, PLEASE secure your copy of our latest album.
It’s us – as real as it gets.

Play loud. Listen Louder! Rock onward!
