And the title song: 'The Long Awaited Return' he wrote when he was 23.
Using that song for the album title is just kind of a joke to amuse myself. There isn't really a return since this is the first time we went out this way (Matt and I-The Pawns- explicitly backing a Tom album), and no one has been waiting for us, and we are just Pawns.
Probably funny mostly just to me, but I really like it.
I don't think anyone has mentioned that song yet, but it's fantastic, I believe.
The other songs are more recent including several written just for this project because once we got this soul mood going we wanted to sustain it across an album, soul with chord changes similar to those found in pre 40s standards
