  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    The album jacket, designed by our graphics guru Mike Virok, features a reworking of images from a Mick Chorba collage. It's such a joy to see this design in a 12 x 12 format - 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 full color insert / lyric sheet, the SF Beer Tour sticker (designed by freelance artist Jason Kochis), and the "The Successful Failures" classic logo sticker in green. With the order of the vinyl you will also receive a digital download and physical cd of an intimate acoustic version of the full album. So let's tally it up....12" record, digital files of entire album, plus digital download/physical cd of acoustic version of album...plus the stickers! We'll sign the record if you want...just let us know (we'll have to break the seal).

    Includes unlimited streaming of Pack Up Your Shadows via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

This is a very limited offer as we don't have many Saratoga's left. You will also get the digital download of "Pack Up Your Shadows" as well as the bonus acoustic album and the SF stickers. This is pretty good deal I must say.

  • Ticket

    We will come to your place and play the album live - you provide the outdoor space, invite your friends. Let's celebrate. The full band will perform the entire new album plus whatever other SF tunes you want to hear. Basically you get a house concert. For those further out than a 50 mile radius of central NJ we may have to negotiate a different price to accommodate travel expenses. You can do this (and still be safe via common sense social distancing and face masks). Live music is not dead!! Of course you get a digital download of the new album plus CD or vinyl. Let us know your preference. Oh and of course you get the full acoustic album as a bonus too.

lyrics

We could sing a song about women
We could sing it all night long
We could sing a song about true love
And how it has gone wrong

I could sing a train song to you
And we’d make that whistle blow
Like it’s coming through the tunnel
We’d make it rumble long and low

But we’ll sing a song about whiskey
And how it makes a weak man strong
Yeah we’ll sing a song about whiskey
And how the good times have all gone

This is a whiskey song

I could sing a song about the girl
Who made me feel this way
I could sing a song about her
And about the mess she made

But we’ll sing a song about whiskey
The lovely golden brown
Yeah we’ll sing a song about whiskey
And we’ll have another round

This is a whiskey song
Come on come on come on come on come on along…

I could sing a song about the dreams
That never will come true
We could sing a song about the dreams
We still hold on to

But we’ll sing a song about whiskey
And not the trouble that it brings
Yeah we’ll sing a song about whiskey
And forget about everything

This is a whiskey song

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
