Completely forgot about that one. Great song!

I love them all, but I especially like:

Goodbye Tin Terriers
Light of the Day
Hard to Be a Woman
Drop In The Sea
Ballad of a Thin Man
Hurry On Sundown
Let It In
Dead Crusader
Melody Day

and this little ditty that know one seems to have mentioned on here before:

I was also going to add Crooked Lines but I wasn't sure if that was KS or an unreleased CM track.

Yeah it was a B-Side to the itunes-only single Out On The Highway.

Yeah that's a CM solo track. The chorus was re-used for Kula's Witches & Wine, though.

*sigh* Looked all over for a legitimate download to All I Need- the Second Sight disc is extremely expensive, that is when you can find it. Great song. Shit!! :x

All wonderful songs. All should have made it to proper albums. Of these listed, Gokula and Another Life are my favorites.

My personal favourite song that didn't make it on any album is the original 'Strangefolk' :)

Pfft that's cheating, it's on an album now. Just took about 15 years :P

I'd definitely second Drop in the Sea and Troubador. Craving Heart was a good one too, I'm sure they will have recorded it at some stage even if it has never surfaced to date (also, I wish I had a time machine to go back to the Scala in 2006 but with a half-decent camera this time. I digress though...)
