  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    For you vinyl lovers out there - Saratoga on beautiful black 12" vinyl with a varied song sequence to better suit the "Side A" / "Side B" format.

    The album jacket, designed by FDR graphics guru Mike Virok, includes the David Appel photo of the band in the studio on the back and the Tris McCall photo of urban NJ on the cover. It's such a pleasure to see this design in a 12 x 12 format rather than the tiny compact disc - but the real allure here is the beautiful sound of this album on the vinyl. Also included in this order is the 11 x 11 insert / lyric sheet and the SF Beer Tour sticker (designed by freelance artist Jason Kochis).

lyrics

I fell right through the floor and onto the stage
Everything was different but it smelled the same
It’s been 13 years since I left this place alive
I took my dreams and I got out just in time

But I wonder where you got to
I wonder where you are
I came back to find you
Between the ocean and the stars

Blackjack Betty, craps, and Caribbean stud
I got to the bottom of it all and I never got up
I ran like hell I went anyway the wind blows
But you can’t outrun the ghosts that haunt you

On a deer path through the woods I lived my life
I didn’t think once, let alone think twice
But the thorns and the thistle and the briar and the thatch all grew
Up around my legs and I never got through

I dug a whole as deep as a mountain is wide
I closed my lips and I never opened my mind
I tumbled like the dice that roll across your table
The world goes by I just watch from the window

about

The Successful Failures Trenton, New Jersey

"The first thing you should know about The Successful Failures is that any attempt to plug them into one genre or another is very much a fool’s errand. Hailing from Trenton, N.J., the band deftly combines Americana, Pop, Rock, and enough of a dusting of Bluegrass that serves as an appetizer to the main course without overwhelming the entire meal." - July 2020, Rock is the New Roll ... more
