    Aimless
    Aimless is the only vocal track on this album. This is a remake of a track I recorded in the 80s by the same name. The lyrics are the same, but I changed almost everything else on it to some extent. When I created Aimless and when I re-created Aimless I felt like an actor playing a part while singing the lyrics. I may have actually gone beyond method acting since I had bronchitis when I recorded the vocals on this version.
    Instrumentation: Drums, Piano, Bass, Clavinet, Vocals

    Road Pops

    Road Pops is based on a short melodic bass line I composed with working title of Mini Bum Rhapsody. When I expanded on this idea it became much more cheerful and was given the happier title Road Pops.
    Instrumentation: Drums, Bass, Organ, Clavinet, Synthesizers, Electric Piano

    The previous title for this piece was Skimming the Surface. Scuba diving in Whaler’s Cove in Point Lobos State Natural Reserve was the inspiration for this.

    Ultra Indigo

    The previous title for this piece was Ultraviolet. I was happy to find out that the new title, Ultra Indigo, is also the name of a hair color. This track could be suitable for an investigatory news program, a sports drama, a spy comedy, or perhaps something else entirely.
    Instrumentation: Drums, Bass, Synthesizers, Cellos, Guitar, Clavinet, Organ

    Mobile Sweet Variation

    I originally titled this song after going to Chinatown in Oakland, CA and buying a box of Japanese candy that came with a blue plastic model toy robot/transformer. The box said Mobile Suit Variation in English next to lots of Japanese writing. I think that the candy was similar to Botan Rice Candy, but I'm not sure. I though that when I reworked Mobile Suit Variation that I would retitle it with a candy reference - Mobile Sweet Variation (along with a play on words, suite.)

    Instrumentation: Drums, Synthesizers, Marimbas, Strings, Clavinet, Xylophone

    Favourite Coloured Armour

    This is one that I did not retitle. I like the British spelling of the three words in the title. It also seems to match the rhythm throughout the song.
