"Grandfather" from "Human Voices" on Anthology's Top 50 songs for 2009

Our "Human Voices" reissue album continues to find its way into some "Best of 2009" lists. "Grandfather" from "Human Voices" is listed as the number 8 song in Anthology Recordings Top 50 Songs for 2009. When we originally recorded this album in 1984 and released just 300 limited edition cassettes in Eugene, Oregon, we knew we had some of our best work completed, but didn't know if very many people would ever hear it.
Now 25 years later, some people are hearing it, thanks to the Guerssen Records CD and vinyl reissues. We love those nice surprises that life can sometimes bring!
