Roads, Water and Orange

"Roads, Water and Orange" explores the journeys of life (the roads), their tribulations (the water), and the realization of love along the way (the orange). This album offers an unusual diversity of styles and sounds, from acoustic rock to bossa nova, songs that are both different and together, strung like diamonds along a live wire of ups, downs, and in-betweens. "Roads, Water and Orange" is a journey of souls searching for their Orangeland.

 The disc is a glass-mastered professionally replicated CD packaged in a 6-panel Digipak (shown below), which provides lyrics for all songs.  The disc (not shown) is black with bold silver text and subtle blue and orange stripes. The graphic design was developed by Emily Elgin and L. V. Cook.

All songs were written, produced and engineered by L. V. Cook at “The Soundproof Vanity” in Fairfax, VA, USA during 2007-2009. The CD was released in March 2010.

Granite In The Mirror

"Granite In The Mirror" was the first L. V. Cook release.  The style of songs range from contemporary folk to folk-rock.

The CD was recorded at the "Soundproof Vanity" and was initially released in 2003.  It was later re-mastered by Jim Curtis at Omega Studios in Rockville, MD and re-released in 2004.  The primary difference between the 2003 and 2004 releases are different versions of "Lost Love", a song I wrote in reference to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack.  The 2003 version is kind of a folky two-step, while the 2004 version is more of a rock song.  The MP3 of Lost Love available at other sites is the folky version. 

All songs were written and produced by L. V. Cook (c) and (p) 2004. BMI.

The musicians included:
L. V. Cook- vocals, guitars, keys, mandolin and engineering
Alexander Mitchell- violin on Tracks 4, 6 and 9, and mandolin on Track 4.
Matthew Michael- solo electric guitar on Track 12
Randall Christner- electric bass on Tracks 1 and 5.
David Savage- harmonica on Track 5

Songs:
Monument (4:32)
Feather (4:48)
Lost Love (4:23)
Family Reunion (4:24)
Given All The Giving (3:21)
A Soldier and a Salesman (3:44)
Scene of the Crime (3:14)
Headlights (4:19)
Warm (4:51)
So Little Sleep (3:37)
Sick of the Cure (3:48)
Caesar's Dead (4:41)
