This song was written after one of my first night's living in the desert in the summer of 1993. Fred was away visiting family in Texas and I wrote it to tell him about the insane, biblical wind the night before. Mark Olson and Victoria Williams sang backup vocals on this recording. Fred always created an atmosphere of collaboration. Whoever was around was given a track.
