    Hello! We ran out of 2nd edition and are currently on the 3rd edition! Thanks for your patience and for the incredible support!

    Attention EU/UK friends: BB*Island of Germany released Rare Feeling on Vinyl and CDs in May 2018! If you live in this part of the world please purchase/preorder Rare Feeling here: bbislandmusic.com/shop/twain-rare-feeling-vinyl-cd

    This is a pure AAA analog recording; that means it was recorded to tape, mixed to tape, and mastered straight to the acetate; the recordings were never digitalized. The result is magic and hard to describe. This is the way we really prefer you hear our recordings.

    This is the second pressing of the vinyl. It comes on standard weight black vinyl, with a full-color printed insert and download card.

    AAA mastered by Paul Gold of Salt Mastering.

Walk right by me I’ll be glad to have you in my life a while There’s always room for one more Eat! Drink! Lay down with the beauties of this earthly world I think that they want to lay down with you In the morning Getting stronger getting richer by the day That’s the way that it was meant to be They won’t tell you but there was once a time when we All lived that way That was before the money came raining down on us … Now: my soul is a pilgrim and my body is barely keeping up and one day, it won’t keep up any more And on that day I’ll go sailing through the clouds (crowds) through the stars On a Solar Highway to my god But till then, I’m still healthy Sitting in the morning sun With no one around to sit down next to me They all know it They all know I’ve got that kind of Soul and they run away They all know that kind of Soul won’t stay long … Oh my god come take me I just cannot wait another day Oh my god! Come take me away!

Every minute I spend with you is like eternity. So why should I get jealous about your boyfriends? The second I close my eyes, they’ll be gone. I know they were good guys, but even good guys don’t get to stick around for eternity. Not like we do, every moment I’m close to you. … Lots of my heroes killed themselves, or went insane, or drank so much, or did so much drugs they nearly killed themselves. Some people tell you that that means we live in a crooked life. But i know it was Society that was poisoning them like it’s poisoning me. For it told me such a lie. It told me we will die. It told me that our Souls are limited. And sorrow became the engine of my love. But now that I can See that, I’m loving clear and free. And every minute I spend with all of you is like eternity. So why should I get nervous about dying? The second I close my eyes I’ll be gone.

Little Dog Mind I’ve got the strangest feeling Coming over me What a weird feeling! coming over me Come on Little Mind! I’ll catch you every time Here! Little mind I’ll catch you every time What you think you ever gonna find over that next Ridge? You’re just like a little dog Running away from me You’re acting like a little dog Running away from me (ch) Now I’m a heart so big there is no escaping me You are dealing with a heart so big little mind there is no escaping me (ch)

“Georgia? Georgia? Take me out tonite. I don’t feel right”. “Hank. I’ll take you out dancing. I’ll take you out on the town. I know why you’re down. You’re going to have to learn to love the part of your self you’ve hated for so long. Hank, it’s so simple. You barely even have to try. Just let your self cry. It’s not just for your own good. You owe it to everyone. When you curse your self you’re cursing everyone. So. You’re going to have to learn to love the part of your self you have hated for so long”.

A lonely day I went outside to smoke a while and think about a picture in a book he was laying in the grass in his suit as the angler posed in the pursuit of the fish oh to be there the smell of her hair the dear swiming through the watery woods Life won’t last long for those who hate it for those who love it it lingers on like a dream free’d from doubt my cigarette went out the sun came out and warmed up the house oh to be fading into that painting as i wrap up the tune and bring it to you

Rare Feeling visit me set my mind at ease Steal my heart just leave the little part of me I need take me whole or leave me alone; there’s no in-between Rare Feeling, visit me set my mind at ease See the man going through the world, gathering all he needs talking loud and proud every little thing he sees now what I’ve got doesn’t seem like a lot but it’s enough for me Rare Feeling, visit me, set my mind at ease How it hurts, your heart’s still young and wants to go love every one but the loving of some one just makes another’s heart so sad Rare Feeling, visit me…

I’m loosing you but you’re loosing me too. You’re everything that I need and if I were not such a greedy man, i’d see it man Don’t be scared, honey, don’t be afraid. They only want to get paid. I only want to get closer to anything at all The streets were bare not a thought in the air Paris now feels like a dream wasting my last breath on schemes of love I’d seen too high above I’m losing you and I don’t know what to do How can you tell it’s the end? How can you lead your best friend into your loneliness The worst came true I didn’t know what to do Breathing my self in the air Leaning way back in my big black chair Into my loneliness

I think you think that’s what’s on my mind I don’t think that that’s what’s on my mind I think you think I am lying. I don’t think so, but if you think so, then I’m lying. Once we dig in I can’t begin to remember what I meant to tell you Dear Mexico, thank you for Joyce Sometime I just can’t believe the things they ask a man to do Like putting up with the tom cats yowling out my window as I dream of you Like your lover’s brother spying on us as we cycle through the night Like the portal closing up the minute I get my first taste of light Once we dig in I can’t begin to remember what I meant to tell you Dear Mexico, thank you for Joyce There’s a hole inside me shaped just like the day we spent in Portal Park Dee dee dee a cherry wind blows in and Pedro sings a song so dark Later, in the morning, the coffee cup is warming up my bed Another book should lay beside my book, your head should lay beside my head Once we dig in I can’t begin to remember what I meant to tell you Dear Mexico, thank you for Joyce

I’m never going down again Even if they all pass me by I wish I had an old friend I wish I had a good old friend to drinking in the kitchen I’d love him from ten til ten I’m never going down again even if they all pass me by I wish I had a little friend I wish I had a little girlfriend To sneak into my garden gate I’d love her from eight til eight
