    Hello! We've just run out of the 2nd edition and are currently pressing the 3rd edition! If you purchase now, it should ship in July! 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! 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.

    AAA mastered by Paul Gold of Salt Mastering.

Track Name: Solar Pilgrim
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!
Track Name: The Sorcerer
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.
Track Name: Little Dog Mind
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)
Track Name: Hank & Georgia
“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”.
Track Name: Freed from Doubt
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
Track Name: Rare Feeling v. 2
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…
Track Name: Black Chair
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
Track Name: Dear Mexico (Thank You for Joyce)
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
Track Name: Good Old Friend (for Charlie)
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
