Independence Day Words & Music by Ani DiFranco As performed by Allison Crowe We drove the car To the top of the parking ramp 4th of July Sat out on the hood With a couple of warm beers And watched the fireworks Explode in the sky There was an exodus of birds from the trees 'cause they didn't know We were only pretending And the people all looked up and looked pleased And the birds flew around Like the whole world was ending I don't think war is noble And I don't like to think love is like war But I got a big hot cherry bomb And I wanna slip it through the mail slot Of your front door You can't leave me here I got your back now You'd better have mine And you say the coast is clear But you say that all the time So many sheep I quit counting Sleepless and embarrassed About the way that I feel Trying to make mole hills out of mountains Building base camp at the bottom Of a really big deal Did I ever tell you how I stopped eating When you stopped calling me I was cramped up Shitting rivers for weeks And pretending that I was finally free You can't leave me here I got your back now You'd better have mine And you say the coast is clear But you say that all the time We drove the car To the top of the parking ramp 4th of July I planted my dusty boots on the bumper Sat out on the hood And looked up at the sky

There Is 03:02
There Is Words & Music by Allison Crowe Open up your door I know we've both been here before But there's a shadow fading here A revolution on its way Open up your mind I know I've drowned in there before But my wings are drying off And I am ready to dive in I am coming back again To you A way There is a way Out of this There is Give me a minute I'll try to explain myself to you I am the girl who is always with you The one who's always watching Give me a break I thought that you understood this already And I'm not trying to deceive you I don't have that much time on my hands And I am not going to leave you alone A way There is a way Out of this There is I see you in the rain and you are more beautiful than I have ever seen And when I walk I want you with me And I see your smile above me and I know, I know there is A way there is a way out of this there is

I Don't Know 04:45
I Don't Know Words & Music by Allison Crowe I don’t know how to deal with this So maybe I’ll just descend into madness Looking out of the corner of my eye Maybe I’ll just run away If I can’t think of anything nice to say, to save my life, before we all fly away And I’d like to think I did something worthwhile And I don’t know what is wrong with everyone I guess, I don’t even know what’s wrong with me And I won’t try to be judgemental I won’t try to be holier than thou But I don’t get this and I am not going to pretend I do I’m tired of watching so many people Systematically destroy themselves Go ahead, this one is on me I think we’re all hiding from an invisible monster Some part of ourselves We don’t want anyone to see I’d like to think this did something worthwhile Besides Killing everyone I know I don’t know what is wrong with everyone I guess, I don’t even know what’s wrong with me And I won’t try to be judgemental I won’t try to be holier than thou I don’t get this And I am not going to pretend I do And I’d like to think this did anything at all But, I think I know better by now I don’t know what is wrong with everyone And I guess, I don’t even know what’s wrong with me And I won’t try to be judgemental I won’t try to be holier than thou But, I don’t get this, I don’t get this I don’t get this I don’t know what is wrong with everyone But, I guess, I don’t even know what’s wrong with me And I won’t try to be judgemental I won’t try to be holier than thou I don’t get this and I am not going to pretend I do 'cause I do... ‘cause maybe I understand too well

I woke up at half past 12 half in and out of dreaming I could barely hear but I think that I was screaming I tried to call out to you be careful, they're right behind you but you turned to me and said, I'm dying and it's too late for anyone to save me Chorus: Step back for a moment and watch what's going on around you you're so concerned with pleasing everyone what about you? repeat So you're weary now from the company you keep lay down your head and go back to sleep...

You 03:11
You Words & Music by Allison Crowe I see what I've become and I've become what I hated I feel so used and I feel so dated Like everything I've tried just to keep myself alive was all worth nothing I thought I was worth something but now I'm just scared and I think that I'm losing it like I'm living in this body but I can't see myself choosing it I want to be alive and I want to be free but what is all of this worth if I can't stand to be around me and you you always cut me down and I can try to please you but you are never satisfied and I don't deserve this from you I've tried everything and I've asked everyone but I'm still stuck in myself and I can't get out every shot to the soul every night I fall further in this self tangled desperation i want to live without an explanation but I sit as I wage this silent war upon myself try to fix it by being outward but I end up walking backward as I jolt myself around I throw myself to the ground please just make this go away I don't want to hear this anymore and you you always cut me down and I can try to please you but you are never satisfied and I don't deserve this from you and I know I could run back to the start but I don't think that I could live through that again so I sit here and listen to what I could be if I tried but I feel like I fail at every turn and you you always cut me down and I can try to please you but you are never satisfied and I don't deserve this from you

In My Life 03:01
In My Life Composed by John Lennon/Paul McCartney Performed by Allison Crowe There are places I remember In my life, though some have changed Some forever not for better Some have gone and some remain All these places had their moments With lovers and friends I still can recall Some are dead and some are living In my life I've loved them all But of all these friends and lovers there is no one compares with you And these memories lose their meaning When I think of love as something new Though I know I'll never lose affection For people and things that went before I know I'll often stop and think about them In my life I'll love you more Though I know I'll never lose affection For people and things that went before I know I'll often stop and think about them In my life I'll love you more In my life I'll love you more

Running 05:19
Running Words & Music by Allison Crowe Verse 1 Granted I've been a fool before But I've never felt So completely insane I know I've been here before But I never saw this For what it really was and Pre chorus: I hope that I can get my point across I hope that I don't lie dormant in the shadows now I know that I am running as fast as I can But I know that that's not very fast at all Chorus: I am trying so hard to be something That I just end up being nothing at all So watch me as I stumble now Watch me smile as I hit the ground Verse 2 Every time that I knew the truth I would just pretend That I wasn't hiding I'd tell myself that it's alright I know myself I think that's all that matters and Pre-Chorus: I hope that I can get my point across I hope that I don't lie dormant in the shadows now I know that I am running as fast as I can And I know that that's not very fast at all Chorus: I am trying so hard to be something That I just end up being nothing at all So watch me as I stumble now Watch me smile as I hit the ground Bridge: I always expect this I always see it coming I love it when it's faltering I love it when it's failing I know that there is Most likely something wrong with that But it's a part of who I am At least I think that it might be, anyway... I'm trying so hard to be something That I just end up being nothing at all So watch me as I stumble now Watch me smile as I hit the ground I'm trying so hard to be something That I just end up being nothing at all So watch me as I stumble now Watch me smile as I hit the ground... As I hit the ground... Watch me smile as I hit the ground

Sea of A Million Faces Words & Music by Allison Crowe I pulled a knife on myself today I don’t know what I was thinking All of these words trapped inside my head I feel like I’ve been drinking And I know you don’t want to see Me this way... In a sea of a million faces I feel so alone I only have you to hold on to So please don’t go, don’t go. And so I walk through the moonlit streets But the light evades me Lost in the darkness of endless nights I am cold and I’m afraid and I wish that I could see... you this way too... In a sea of a million faces I feel so alone I only have you to hold on to So please don’t go, don’t go I would have crawled for ten thousand days Just to get back to you With dirty knees and a wind torn face I don’t know what I’m supposed to do And I don’t ever want To see you this way...

Disease 07:59
Disease Words & Music by Allison Crowe Stepping on the thoughts of all pain released from this anger is some place I would like to be and when I feel myself defeated I bleed and when I see them twist around dancing in their own wake I rage And I don't want to exist on this plane crashing down to the level of depth of skin flesh and bone all wrapped up in pages flashed in our faces laughing and spiteful Run away Lost again misdirected and folded drowned in bones and thrown away they told me to disappear and slowly dive into the shallow end of the gene pool Try to hold on to what I believe disappeared no longer here as anything but wretched and disfigured so I slash myself again and I drown my hopes again lose myself in this disease Lost again misdirected and folded drowned in bones and thrown away they told me to disappear and slowly dive into the shallow end of the gene pool Cut yourself to the mold Nothing left to rid yourself of but bile and blood torn skin screaming and silenced as we replace marble with plastic Lost again misdirected and folded drowned in bones and thrown away they told me to disappear and slowly dive into the shallow end of the gene pool

Bill 04:24
Bill Words by P.G. Wodehouse & Music by Jerome Kern As performed by Allison Crowe I used to dream that I would discover The perfect lover someday, I knew I'd recognize him if ever He came 'round my way. I always used to fancy then He'd be one of the God-like kind of men With a giant brain and a noble head Like the heroes bold In the books I've read. But along came Bill Who's quite the opposite of all The men in storybooks In grace and looks I know that Apollo Would beat him All hollow And I can't explain, It's surely not his brain That makes me thrill -- I love him because he's wonderful, Because he's just my Bill. He can't play golf or tennis or polo, Or sing a solo, or row. He isn't half as handsome As dozens of men that I know. He isn't tall or straight or slim And he dresses far worse than Ted or Jim. And I can't explain why he should be Just the one, one man in the world for me. He's just my Bill, an ordinary man, He hasn't got a thing that I can brag about. And yet to be Upon his knee So comfy and roomy Seems natural to me. Oh, I can't explain, It's surely not his brain That makes me thrill -- I love him because he's -- I don't know... Because he's just my Bill. Written in 1917 for Oh Lady! Lady! Revised later w. Oscar Hammerstein II for Show Boat

Skeletons and Spirits Words & Music by Allison Crowe Take your sympathy and shove it as for the pain, well, I love it I'll eat your words I'll devour your soul I will laugh like a lemur as you crawl back into your hole I won't deny you, but I'll pay you no heed And, if you keep stabbing me, I will probably bleed But, I'll pretend I'm a cloud and my rain will surround you And if you keep hurting me I'll eventually drown you And, yes I know I'm a little bit off But, you, you can't leave, you can't open the door you think you're unique but I've seen you before so run, run away from the fires that burn you will do this again and again but you will never learn So keep looking down as you crush me keep smiling 'cause I will get up and there's no denying that I am one of your punching clowns you can keep on striking but you can't keep me down You always think that you are fearless and right but I think that you are afraid in the night of the ghosts, of the spirits that crawl into your head of the skeletons that'll haunt you until you're dead but, now, you can't leave, you can't open the door you think you're unique but I've seen you before so run, run away from the fires that burn you will do this again and again and again and again but, now, you can't leave, you can't open the door you think you're unique but I've seen it all before so run, run away from the fires that burn but you will never learn you will never learn you will never learn

Hallelujah 04:30
Hallelujah Words & Music by Leonard Cohen As performed & Transcribed by Allison Crowe I've heard there was a secret chord That David played, and it pleased the Lord But you don't really care for music, do you? Well, it goes like this, the fourth, the fifth The minor fall, the major lift The baffled king composing Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Well, your faith was strong but you needed proof You saw her bathing on the roof Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you She tied you to a kitchen chair She broke your throne, she cut your hair And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Well, baby, I've been here before. I've seen this room, and I've walked this floor. I used to live alone before I knew you. But I've seen your flag on the marble arch, And love is not a victory march, It's a cold and it is a broken Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Well, there was a time when you'd let me know What's really going on below, But now you never show that to me, do you? But remember when I moved in you, And the Holy Ghost was moving too, And every breath we drew was Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Well, maybe there is a God above, But all that I've ever learned from love Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you. It's not a cry that you hear at night, And it is not somebody who has seen the light It's a cold and it is a broken Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah

In Love In Vain Words & Music by Leo Robin/Jerome Kern As performed by Allison Crowe It's only human for anyone to want to be in love, Who wants to be in love in vain? At night you hang around the house and eat your heart out, And cry your eyes out And wrack your brain. You sit and wonder how anyone as wonderful as he Could cause you such misery and pain. I thought that I would be in heaven, But I'm only up a tree, 'Cause it's just my luck to be in love in vain. You sit and wonder how anyone as wonderful as he Could cause you such misery and pain. I thought that I would be in heaven, But I'm only up a tree, 'Cause its just my luck to be in love, just my luck to be in love It's just my luck to be in love, in vain

Imagine there's no countries, It isn't hard to do, Nothing to kill or die for, No religion too, Imagine all the people living life in peace... Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can, No need for greed or hunger, A brotherhood of man, Imagine all the people Sharing all the world...

about

There’s a lot of love expressed when Allison Crowe sings and plays. Love for another. Love for humanity. Love of place. Love of peace. Love of freedom. There’s heartbreak and loss, too. Exorcism. Transcendence. "Soulful. Alive. Joyous. Grievous. Real, true, music” – the artist’s raison d’etre.

“Great Island Wonder” is the official release of a concert bootleg that’s long circulated in torrent trading circles. Mélanie Bilodeau of Denman Island, on Canada’s Pacific shores, presented this concert to her home community and neighbours on Hornby Island in 2005 – it’s captured resonantly by Audioarchivist John MacMillan.

A sister, companion in ways, to “Live at Wood Hall” recordings of concerts earlier that Spring – this night’s undercurrents surface in song debuts of “I Don’t Know”, “You”, “Skeletons and Spirits” and reflect a different sort of intensity.

This date was soon followed by a cross-Canada tour, embarking birth-place Nanaimo, BC and reaching St. John’s and Corner Brook, Newfoundland, on Canada’s Atlantic coast, where Allison Crowe made her new home. Bi-coastal love established then is grown ever-deeper now. (Another shift – this may be the final concert capture of entirely vocal-piano repertoire. By her next tours of Canada and Europe Crowe was including guitar songs, as well, in her set. In more recent years she’s added fiddle and bodhran.)

Sharing the tape – John MacMillan describes the 'Live on Denman Island' doc in these 'Personal notes':

“To be honest, this was a fairly ‘dark’ show - there seemed to be demons rearing their ugly heads for this concert. The song selection is pretty, um, deep and somewhat, well, I dunno what to call it. Not to go into all the dreary details, but I was beginning the end of a relationship with a partner who was the catalyst of making this show happen, and I believe Alley was going though a breakup that kind of came to a peak at this show. Like I say, the song selection and audience banter seems to reflect this stuff that was going on behind the scenes. Despite the personal hardships, I think it is a brilliant performance, with some humour thrown in as well. Allison Crowe is a great songwriter, a fantastic musician, and an amazing vocal talent. I hope you enjoy this recording as much as I enjoyed the show.”

(MacMillan’s 'Technical Notes' to the recording are found below on this “Great Island Wonder” album page.)

Live on Denman Island
D.I. Community Hall main stage
June 11, 2005

Multitrack live remote recording over 4 stereo sources, live concert sound PA mix, live stage monitor mix, recording multitrack re-synch of 8 channels, mixdown with multiple effects, and final mastering by Audioarchivist, who is also part of the team that locally promoted the show.
An authorized "bootleg" live concert recording.

Technical notes:
This is a multitrack recording, captured fairly well in a kind of oldschool lo-fi fly-by-night fashion. haha. It is an 8 channel live recording captured as 4 stereo pairs and re-assembled later in the computer. For the first stereo recording of the four, there were 2 Shure SM-57's 8 to 10 inches over the piano strings pointing a little forward at the hammers inside the piano about 18 to 22 inches apart and positioned centrally over what I thought looked like the best average of being that were recorded through a Mackie CR1604 mixer (with the XLR-10 mic pre expander pack for 16 full mic inputs) fed out directly into my computer's soundcard panned hard left - right. I think I also mixed them into the room live at maybe 30% panned to 20% off of being mono (so maybe 11 o'clock and 1 o'clock?) but the Denman Island Community Hall's great sound and acoustic piano filled a lot of the room naturally on it's own! These mics give the recording an interesting organic stereo sound.

The second stereo recording that captured a different part of the night was Allison's own personal vocal mic – a Neumann KMS105A condenser - and an extra Shure SM-58 mic that I mounted under the piano on the base of the piano's wheeled metal frame pointing up at the bottom of the piano. These were recorded off a second auxilary output of the Mackie board into a Sony MiniDisc recorder panned hard left - right so Alley was in one side and this third piano mic was in the other side. Obviously the vocal feed was used in the PA and the stage monitors prominently to match the acoustic piano in this lovely sounding venue. I remember we used a combination of Alley's owm travelling PA on stage as the monitor mix (in mono) and the Community Hall's Stereo PA to fill out the sides of this wide hall. I thought I did an alright job of making the whole hall sound good (and it was pretty full) but Alley's stage PA "monitor mix" was pretty hot and I heard later that the sound blew a few of the older ladies in the front rows heads clean off being so loud! Rock out! The 3rd under the piano mic was not in the live show's PA mix but is a part of the final mixdown recording.

Third of our stereo captures is a pair of Genexxa re-branded Shure Prologue 16L condenser mics on either side of the stage facing the audience going directly into another Sony MiniDisc unit stereo mic input. The mics were running through a lot of line (and a 100 foot 20 channel snake) out to my own handmade 2 XLR to stereo 3.5mm mic jack, and there was some buzzing noise interference that got captured from the lighting rig along with audience wide stereo ambience. I have done my best at the time to de-noise the buzzing to salvage the ultra-wide room capture, and where I needed to use it the noise is minimal and bearable but occasionally audible.

Fourth and finally a stereo capture from a Roland Edirol R-04 digital recorder internal mics at the middle back of the room where I was. The unit was placed on a stack of equipment to place it at about 6 feet high (head height) and above the level of the seated audience between the recorder and the stage. This recording is a nice stereo room capture of all the sounds in the room that night. The sound from all the PA speakers. The direct sound from the grand piano with the full open lid. Natural room reverb. Audience applause. And no buzzing humming annoyance of a bad noise! Unfortunately this part of the recording is incomplete. The recorder belonged to a friend in the audience who'd just purchased this new digital audio recorder and wanted to test it. It only had a small memory card, and it ran out about halfway through the show. Also, it is a lossy master recording, captured in mp3 format.

All of these 4 stereo sources to make an 8 channel master live recording were manually re-synched in Cubase VST32 5.1 and mixed down with appropriate effects where necessary. Equalization and compression on vocal and piano mics, some stereo reverb on the mono vocals and mono under-piano mic, de-noising on the stage ambience mics. The Edirol R-04 ambience source is used for natural room reverb and audient sound for the first half of the show, and crossfaded into the stage Shure ambience mics as the Edirol source was incomplete.

I spent months and months (years, really) finding what I think is a proper mix of these 8 tracks for this show. For a long time I abandoned this recording, as the Shure stage ambient mics had some noise interference from the lighting board (big buzz), but a recent de-noising tool made it useable again. I mixed and remixed and re-re-re-remixed this show until I settled on this mix as being the one I was happy with. Fresh ears and an indecisive mind made me keep changing it! I just wasn't happy with any of my mixes of this recording until recently. When i finalized the mix and made a copy for Adrian (Allison's manager) I erroneously bypassed all the EQ settings that I had found to work, making a flat lifeless mix by accident in my rush to give a copy to them at a recent show. Oops! This version is a correction of that mistake, restoring the intended sound of my "final" (for now!) mix.

Until later,
-John MacMillan, Audioarchivist
