These songs were written and performed for the “TapeNet” project by Vicki M with some vocal and instrumenal assistance by David Britton.

More Obscure Music

Here are two pieces with music written and lyrics written and assembled by David Britton. By that I mean David created some of the lyrics and took the rest from writings of Bahá’u’lláh. Instrumental music is performed by David and vocals are by David and by Vicki Morrison.

Obscure Indie Music

I’ll be posting obscure pieces of music, often just rough recordings. The first several were resurrected from an old cassette tape from the 1990s. The production is very inconsistent; a professional could probably make them sound better and more consistent, but I’ll have to make do with what I can manage on my own.

The first song from the tape is “Sacred Ground”, written and performed by Mark Clark. © Ⓟ Mark Clark

And the second is “Naw-Rúz Blues”, also written and performed by Mark. © Ⓟ Mark Clark
