Lots o' thanks to GOD for helping me with this!

This instrumental was written in the back of a tour bus while they were on
the road.  It only appears on a couple hard-to-find Jars of Clay CD's, and
one Taylor Guitars CD called Sounds of Wood & Steel 2.

Here's all the pointless details for anyone who's interested
(as quoted from Sounds of Wood & Steel 2):
Wicker Baskets
Jars Of Clay (2:50)
(Dan Haseltine/Charlie Lowell/Matt Odmark & Stephen Mason)
Bridge Building Music Inc. (BMI)

Jars Of Clay:
Taylor 422 (standard tuning),
Taylor 420-PF (standard tuning)
Produced by Stephen Lipson
Arranged by Jars Of Clay
Recorded by Heff Moraes at Secret Sound,
Nashville, TN and Aquarium, London, UK
Mixed and Engineered by Heff Moraes
"Originally written in the back lounge of our tour bus, this piece came to
full realization while we were working on our 1997 release, "Much Afraid".
Stephen Lipson, producer of "Much Afraid" added his production finesse while
we were in London to create the final mix.  Many of the songs we write
start this way, as simple, dual acoustic melodies.  Some eventually become
electric/acoustic rockers and some, with quiet vocals added, grow into
powerful ballads.  But this song seemed different - a quiet, reflective song
that sounded perfect just the way it was.
-Jars of Clay

1997 Essential Records, a division of Brentwood Music, Inc.
