Good Enough - a Tom Petty song with lyrics by Roger Curley

Sometimes in life when something really cool comes your way,
it’s so good that if another day that cool never comes around again, well…
It was
good enough just to have that moment of glory ;-)


Our
Sailing Adventures will be the highlight of a lifetime that many can only dream of and for others is beyond their imagination…those awesome days, if they never come again, they will still live in our memory ...
and it will always be ‘good enough’….

A fellow sailor friend told us as we sat in our boat anchored in crystal clear turquoise water with whales breaching everywhere among the absolute tropical splendor while we enjoyed boat drinks at yet another breathtaking sunset … ”Aw hell, I’ve seen so much beauty right here for a lifetime that if I die tomorrow, this alone would have made my life complete
and that's good enough!”

Tom Petty’s version talks of the love of a “wild child” gal…she was so wild, she drove her parents crazy & got the best of him too… but there was something about her, that only he could see…& that’s good enough…

That was “Hipnautical” to us…our ship, our home, our amazing challenge that only we could see, sweat and live for. She was a big sturdy ship, built like a ‘brick shit house’ & to others she may have had a ‘rough around the edges’ look… but to us she was everything! She was our magic carpet ride to paradise & beyond… that made our life complete & quite ‘Good Enough’ ;-)

Pure Sailing Bliss as “Your barefoot on the deck…and crankin’ in the main…you got a lot of sail on…hull’s hissin’ underway…. And if a day like this, never comes around again….well that’s good enough.”

Time by Bobbie Jo Curley
An original song by Bobbie Jo Curley
Celtic Harp/Voice with her husband Roger Curley on Guitar and Vocals

Written in the parking lot of a Safeway grocery store
We are reminded that time is really of no essence
It will keep marching on, wearing your shoes down or
possibly giving you what you need...
What do you need?
What do we need?
Maybe just a smile or an open hand...
greeting each other in friendship and dignity.


Live Aloha

An Al Stewart song that speaks of Nostradamus's predictions...

Was he an evil genius?
Or a spiritual prophet ‘seer’ of prophetic proportions?
He based his predictions by assuming that "
comparative horoscopy", the comparison of future planetary configurations with those accompanying known past events, could actually predict what would happen in the future.


Perhaps just by sheer numbers that ‘some’ of his prophecies came true.
For instance he was quite successful in the business of writing ‘Almanacs’.
One of Nostradamus’s Almanacs for only one year contained at least 6,338 prophecies, so after a life time he’s bound by dumb luck to get at least a few close enough.

From skeptics to ‘cool aid swilin’ cult-sters’ to deep thinkers alike…
Nostradamus so totally Rocks for a song story line ;-)
Plus it starts out a bit nautical ;-)

In the East the wind is blowing the boats across the sea
And their sails will fill the morning and their cries ring out to me.
Oh man, man your time is sand your ways are leaves upon the sea.

Waiting in Vain by Bob Marley, Performed by Hipnautical

Hipnautical performs a Bob Marley favorite...Celtic Harp, Guitar, and smooth vocals in a lush tropical Maui setting
Take a break and relax while you listen


During our recent sailing adventures I had the chance to ride my mountain bike in the rural country villages way inland from our anchored boat throughout numerous Pacific islands of Polynesia. We could not be further away from Jamaica in the Caribbean but even in these far & remote islands in villages that still live basically the same lifestyle as their ancestors a millennia ago… They have embraced the voice of hope & encouragement that sings to the hearts of all peoples, especially the world’s islanders… the voice & song of Bob Marley.

I recall several of these all day bike ride adventures that took me way off the beaten path to very remote village farms. Being way off the limited power grid of the main village it was odd to hear the loud machinery that is used to crush & pound their Kava plants into the fine powdery substance used in their daily Kava ceremonies & sold to help support their very basic lifestyles. So at first I’d hear the distant diesel generator pumping out the electrical power to run the kava pounding machines. As I’d get closer this racket would of course get louder but often the villagers would play music to help drown out the noise. So much to my surprise, so far into the ‘bush’, the sound of Bob Marley played on huge speakers would just be amazing!

In most of these remote places I could not speak their native language nor could they speak my English but we all could sing along to the Bob Marley songs & soon after swillin’ down an endless stream of kava in coconut cups, the palm trees seemed to sway in da rhythm of Bob Marley’s Reggae & we’d all feel that ‘one love’ of brotherly & sisterly bonds of this communal ceremony.

Stillness of Breath by Bobbie Jo Curley

Roger and Bobbie Jo Curley—"Hipnautical"
Guitar, Celtic Harp, Vocals, Crystal Flutes, Chapman Stick

There are so many times in people's lives when
they just can't find the right words to say
When we take a step back and slow the breath...
When we allow ourselves to relax in the stillness of our breathing
We will find an answer

The Choosing by Bobbie Jo Curley

Roger and Bobbie Jo Curley—"
Hipnautical"
Guitar, Celtic Harp, Vocals, Crystal Flutes, Chapman Stick

This original song by Bobbie Jo ponders…
What will be left for our children's children's children


Bobbie Jo has a very powerful statement and belief
that
we have Choices to make every day
that affect our children & the condition of the world
that we leave for them


We can listen to the voices and pull our hearts together
or we can ignore the rhythmic pulsing of
the beating of the life force

We can build a future for our children or
we can dig the chasm to swallow them whole
It is ours for the choosing
...it is ours for the making

Starting Today
Make each of your ‘Choices’
ones that makes a better world for our childern’s children…

In a Garden So Green

We like to say this is an ‘oldie but goodie’ since it’s from the 60’s…

A traditional Scottish song from the 1660s... ;-)
…Speaks of a lusty lady love who taunts her lover
to meet her amongst the flowrs
"Elore, Elore',...I love my lusty love..."

It is written in very old Scottish speak...
"In a Garden so Green, in a May morning,
heard I my lady pleen (complain) of paramours...
said she 'My love so sweet, come you not yet, nor yet...height
(wouldn't you like?) you not me to meet amongst the flowrs...'

Sweet Baby James by James Taylor
Performed by Hipnautical

A sort of ‘Hat’s off’ to our up country cowboys - Paniolo
“Hawaii Roughriders”, direct descendant of the vaquero of California and Mexico, "Paniolo" is a Hawaiianized pronunciation of español.

One of the "sweet" covers we do...
you just can't go wrong with James Taylor
His use of imagery and choices of lyrics are always
heartfelt and pleasing to all who listen

He harkens to the lone cowboy,
far away in the distant pastures singing himself to sleep
He harkens to songs that are sung as we embark on a journey
To songs that are sung to passed love ones & their home in the sky,
Or just a lullaby we sing to our children just to help them to sleep…

Willin' by Little Feat, performed by Hipnautical
...always a rockin' good time
every day is "story time"!

One of those classic 'truck drivin' songs about a brokenhearted trucker who sees his girlfriends face in every headlight…
But when the call comes in to keep movin’…he’s always
Willin’….providing your providing:
weed, whites & wine… & you show him a sign
He’d be willing… to be movin’ … ;-)

Can't Look Back Live Manao Radio & the studio

Each Song on the Sailing Adventure album tells part of the story of sailing around the world. While in the Caribbean, naturally Ska, Reggae & a bit of calypso island music prevails, Can't look back is complete with Steel drums & Rasta-mon vocals.

The Live Radio acoustic version ends the the 'Doo Wop vocals which leads into the Studio version's original Reggae Rasta vocals by Celay....check it out!

After sailing halfway around the world to the west then another world passage to the east finds our good ship & crew in the heart of the Caribbean.
I found this cool Rasta gal Celay jamin' on the steel drums & singin' in da Reggae Style near the waterfront in Marina Del Rey while on a bike ride. Took her card & months later had her come over and record these roots Reggae vocal arrangements that prelude the song. Magic happened when she got into her part and soon was making corrections to my lyrics, she changed a few words around to better 'be' in da tropical island vernacular ...
Instead of I have been sailing...it now goes "I B Sailin'"...

I recorded Celay's vocal arrangements on a new 24 track 2" tape. When we were done tracking her vocals I mixed them down to the two track-mastering recorder. Now the trick here is to record this vocal track on to the main 24 track tape session at just the right time to be in sync with the song...It's generally a hit & miss process, cue up the two track tape deck's vocal part, press play on the 24 track machine & the two track then put the 24 track in 'Record'...
At best you can only hope to be reasonably Close,
but some how with the first try the vocals landed on an un-expected '
near up-beat' and our vocal arrangement of 'Oooohs & Aughs' now took on a very different but swanky funk feel. (It was more sort of a "one-e-and- a" timing)
Listen to this funky feel just after the vocal prelude part &
right when the steel drums intro in the main song.


Celay continues to belt out authentic Caribbean church choir power Oooohs & Aughs' throughout the song.

Steel Drums are played by percussion extraordinaire Ray McMamara, whom shortly after got a cool gig with Jimmy Buffet's steel drum player. Ray is a Cal Arts Grad & his virtuoso performance on this song really takes you to the hopin' beaches of Trinidad during 'Carnaval'.

In the Ska tradition I brought together a horn section with Trombone, Sax & Trumpet that really laid down the slamin horn tracks make the song snap.
The Trombone & Trumpet play inter-woven solos, followed by Ray on the Steel Drums.
Taking the long jam home...the long way... ;-) is
Charles Hayes of Ike & 'THE' Tina Turner fame. This guys' got character & so does his sax, if you listen real carefully near the end you can hear his pad smacking when levered with gusto...I left it in as part of the magic!

A midi keyboard sample of a real Hammond B-3 organ was played by Bobbie Jo Curley & recorded into the midi sequencer computer, which ran in sync with the smpte time code on the analog tape. When the song was being mixed, the output of the B3 organ sound was plugged into a real Lesley Rotating Speaker System, mic'd in stereo & added to the mix in real time.
While mixing the song & pressed the 'slow & fast' buttons to change the speed of the Rotating Lesley Speakers. At the end of the song you can clearly hear the Hammond B3 swirling with all it's glory during the fade out ;-)

We write epics! .... & recording them usually takes an epic effort as well ;-)

'Slow Down Your Heart' Live & Pirates (studio)

Hipnautical with Bobbie Jo & Roger Celtic Harp Guitar & Vocals

Slow Down Your Heart by Bobbie Jo Curley
from her album 'Heavenly Blues'
http://www.harpsingerbobbiejo.com/heavenlyblues/

A Zen like call to calm one's anxious Soul
Look 'Within' and be at 'One' with your Spirit
& your Life's Path

Bobbie Jo speaks to the core of the ‘mysterious conundrum’ that often eludes our conscious life
We are often
too wrapped up in the ‘Rat Race’
to
slow down & enjoy the simple passage of time

We forget to ‘
Slow Down’ & ‘smell the Roses’
“How can we see beads of dew,
dancing with the sun when we are running away”?

We can spend a lifetime in search of The ‘Truth’…
So that we may someday be ‘at One’ with the ‘Knowing’…
Or we can have a totally un-conditional ‘Faith’ in our beliefs…
So that in the ‘here after’
we may be ‘at One’ with the ‘Knowing’

These are all divine paths and
Each one of us must follow their own
But regardless of your direction…
You don’t have to wait for peace of mind until you
‘Rest in Peace’
Slow down
your worried heart
Take the time to enjoy life’s simple pleasures
And most of all…
Enjoy the passage of time!

Pirates is from the album "A Sailing Adventure" by Roger Curley
http://www.harpsingerbobbiejo.com/asailingadventure/

Note the pedal steel solo by Mickey Wells during the Malay…
Mickey was a top call country session player; he didn’t have a need to trade studio time so I scrapped up enough dough to buy his talents for one hour.
I asked him to play his pedal steel instrument thru a heavy metal guitar rig to get a big loud & over driven aggressive sound; he thought that was a cool thing to try as he has never tried that sound before.
I told him I was going for that
slide solo style made famous
(in certain rock circles) by
Pink Floyd….
Although heavy metal, rock & roll & Pink Floyd
was a bit ‘other worldly’ to his genre, his professionalism & mastery of his peddle steel proved to be very impressive

I had previously set up a number of mics, pre amps & tube compressors so it didn’t take much time to dial in the sounds & levels to tape. So while he was getting warmed up by playing along with the track, I put him into Record & told him to just to explore the track while I set the final levels.

Turns out the levels we're right on
His riffs while warming up...
hearing the track for the first time
is the solo you’ll hear on this song Pirates.
I recorded a number official ‘takes’ but it was the magic that happened on
that first warm up pass that really ‘slammed it home’!

We are inspired to perform our music on here on Maui
with the soul of Pacific Islands from our sailing adventures
in rhythm with the spirit of Aloha.

Don't Fade on Me by Tom Petty Performed Live by Hipnautical
A drop D slack key rollin' in da gutta south west desert boogie :-O

Gotta Voo Doo is from the studio album 'A Sailing Adventure' by Roger Curley

When a good friend goes off the deep end it's often way to sad to even do a damn thing; but a true friend WILL intervene & get 'em back on the wagon.

A dear friend of mine is a musical genius; he can listen to a crappy cassette tape of a 100-piece orchestra & write out each & every part by ear alone in perfect calligraphy penmanship with nothing but a crack pipe for company.

He soon slid way off the deep end & was drivin' a taxi cab & sleepin' in the back seat between fares, the moment he got enough for another fix he was out in left field over doin' the crack.
His friends did intervene & sent a strong message
"Don't Fade on Me"
now he's a very successful orchestral music composer in Nashville Tennessee.


Gotta Voo Doo is from the album 'A Sailing Adventure' by Roger Curley
http://www.harpsingerbobbiejo.com/asailingadventure/

This song portrays the story line in which the main character, sailboat & crew are ship wrecked on an island that has not officially denounced their traditional cannibalistic practices :-O

I recorded a wall of drums by over dubbing my drummer friend Casey’s 4 tom toms numerous times, each time I would change the speed of the 24 track 2” tape analog recorder slightly faster. When recording these normal drums at a faster speed, when played back at normal speed they have a deeper & larger than life sound!

I was lucky to have found the perfect ‘Voo Doo Chief’ voice of Das (in true Rasta form he has abandoned all but this ‘Rasta’ name).
After seeing him perform with the percussionist Jonathan Norton (whom performs his magic tracks through out this album) at a Hollywood venue I knew he had the perfect voice for the part.

Das has this very deep jovial voice a lot like the “un-Cola-Nut” man’s voice from the old 7-up commercial in the 1970 & 80s.

I wrote this song with very heavy influence from several iconic Root’s Reggae bands, any similarities should be considered the ‘highest form of flattery’ ;-) Another incredible song writing challenge was for me also write in a ‘Rap Reggae’ chorus. Although I never had much experience in ether Rap or Raggae, my years of recording these styles in my studio paid off & I managed quite a convincing ‘Cannibalistic, Blood curdling, spine tingling Raggae Rap’ chorus ;-)

Pot of Gold by Bobbie Jo Curley
http://www.harpsingerbobbiejo.com/celticfolkfavorites/

As I awoke one morning with the "Oh, woe is me" feeling,
I went out to water my garden
and created a
whole circle of a rainbow...
The only shadow was
me standing in the center of the circle
A huge reminder that
we create our beauty
We are already standing in our pot of gold

Rainbows have that almost magical force
that tends to distract us from our day to day issues.
Whenever those ‘issues’ pop us,
just take the time to count your blessings ;-)…
Yes, of course your issues will still be there
& if one of your issues is paranoia ‘they’re’ still out to get ya…
So don’t just count your blessings…write ‘em down…& keep writing!
Soon you’ll find that there are really a lot more things to happy about than life’s little ‘poop cakes’ ;-)



Mother Ocean is from the album "A Sailing Adventure" by Roger Curley
http://www.harpsingerbobbiejo.com/asailingadventure/

In a way, the ‘Mother Ocean’ is like a Mother
in the fact that our blood contains a
similar ratio of salt in our veins

Nearly all of us have a strong enchantment to the Sea. Perhaps it’s the possible opportunities that lie across the horizons, the idyllic dreamy Tropical Islands or just the desire to escape the little world, as we know it.


Before I could buy a boat I would windsurf obsessively, I would arrive before the winds start, windsurf until the wind stopped or got to dark to see. Then I’d sit on the beach while the moon came out, the moon sparkling over the water looked like millions of diamonds twinkling in the night.
I imagined how the sea would look while sailing thru the night on a full moon.

Years later I spent many overnight sails on watch
under big moons with it’s diamond like reflections
sparkling over the seas while our boat’s wake
lit up in the green phosphorescence,
trailed idly be hind us…


In this song a line “Landfall in Moorea, there to meet my…” Well, nearly 20 after writing this song, I find myself singing this song to a boat-load of fellow sailboat cruiser while anchored in Moorea.
It put a tear in my eye to realize that my dream had come true
& I’m living it ;-)

Hipnautical with Bobbie Jo & Roger Celtic Harp Guitar & Vocals.
Performed concerts from California to New Zealand &
the countless but unforgettable tropical islands in between
while sailing their 51 foot sailboat S/V Hipnautical.

Note by Note by Shawna Selline --
Daughter of Bobbie Jo's Woldsong Harp Maker Paul Culotta.
This amazing piece will grab your hand and wheel you through
a beautiful journey of lyrical imagery that is truly unsurpassed.

It is always everyone's favorite song.
"If Life is a River & I am a drop, You're in the middle & I'm on the top,
we'll rush thru the rapids & get to know each other well enough" ;-)

You will take respite with dancing trees and, as a drop of water,
journey through watery rapids to get to know the other drops...
as you know yourself.


Sail On is an old sea chanty I recently made up ;-)
It is from the album "A Sailing Adventure" by Roger Curley

http://www.harpsingerbobbiejo.com/asailingadventure/

Sail On
The first song in the epic ‘Rock-Opera’ ‘A Sailing Adventure’

The album’s story begins with a lonely Harmonica crying out &
a Dobro answering the call setting the mood with
a deep ‘Southwestern music feel’ to portray
Captain’ Roger’s Southwestern roots;
He soon finds himself stuck in a loathsome harbor as he prepares himself for a few years of ‘hard as’ boat work.
He realizes his old boat is close to falling apart, so he begins his epic struggle to build a new world cruising catamaran &
Earn a living having fun on the sea.

Sail On was written in ‘ye ol’ fashioned Sea Chantey’ style
with the ending strongly hinting that
‘We all need something to Dream About…& give us some Hope!’

See Hear Breathe by Roger Curley - Was conceived at the beach
Being inspired by
Seeing the Ocean stretching out over the horizon...
Hearing the Ocean sounds, the waves breaking off shore &
the calming foaming wavelets gently caressing the sands at my feet...
Breathing in the Ocean scents, the salty crisp clear air that has just traveled thousands of miles to replace the smoggy air of Los Angeles that I had breathed in for years.

With my toes in the sand & the wind in my face...
Dreams seem a lot more possible...
And indeed they became a reality more glorious than I could have dreamed them way back then.
See, Hear, Breathe - Depicts the depressing 'Dead Calm of Life' in a very 'Pink Floyd-ish' style as the days of hard boat work turn into weeks, months & even years of seemingly endless boat work.

Years later we spent over 3 years in a very similar way,
while working full time & then spending every spar moment
to out fit our 30 year old boat into a trusty world cruising boat
with all the high tech equipment required to
navigate the world's oceans

Mokahinau & Breath Live Manao Radio Concert -
Sea Dreams/ Sea Journey (studio)

Hipnautical with Bobbie Jo & Roger Celtic Harp Guitar & Vocals
Performed concerts from California to New Zealand &
the countless but unforgettable tropical islands in between
while sailing their 51 foot sailboat S/V Hipnautical

Mokahinau, an original instrumental piece by Roger Curley melts into Breath by Pink Floyd.

Mokahinau is an island off New Zealand which the local advise is
not to attempt to get near during 'unsettled weather'...
New Zealand has 'heaps' of unsettled weather so it was a lucky few days of awesome natural beauty,
sea caves, time worn sandstone sculptures, crystal clear water (...cold as!), kayak & snorkeling...
& plenty of time to play my guitar to the tune of this
temporarily tranquil place.

With our boat gently floating to our anchor chain, we're snug within a labyrinth rocky islets, nooks & crannies; we found a spot just past these monoliths to set our hook in clear water & vertical cliff walls nearly all around us & the water was unseasonably calm. For hours a day I'd let the feel of this magical place take my music to calmer depths within.

Breath by Pink Floyd...what can ya say...
Relapse & Flash backs ;-)

End Credits with the song Sea Dreams/ Sea Journey
from the album 'A Sailing Adventure' by Roger Curley


Sea Dreams –
I walked into the gentle surf near Malibu with my Digital Audio Tape recorder & a pair of $1000 studio mics to capture the relaxing sounds of the sea.

You can even hear the foamy bubbles as the wavelets caress
the sandy shores.
At times on my tippy toes &
holding the $$ mics out of the water :-O

Take a moment to be taken away to this relaxing beach.
Take in a deep breath, let it out slowly…
After you shake off the anxious twitch of the rat race…
Take a slow stroll down the beach…
There you see your world cruising sailboat anchored
in clear waters that glow like turquoise jewels.
You’ve got ‘Permission to come aboard’!
So Let’s haul anchor & go sailing!


Sea Journey –
Former BBC announcer Lou Sexty
narrates the story line of sailing thru the countless islands of the south pacific then journeys thru the Panama Canal and into the Caribbean.

The good ship & crew soon faced the hurricane winds of a late season cyclonic storm. In the shallow waters a narrow coral reef pass, storm generated wave lifts the boat higher than usual then slam her down hard on the bottom, breaking both rudders. The next wave pushes them out of the reef-lined pass and out to open sea where they deploy a sea anchor & drift safely away from the reef…

The storm builds it’s intensity & to portray the music of a ‘Storm at Sea’, our dear friend Dov plays quite a phenomenal Violin piece with his virtuosic talents.

I had taken inspiration from an arrangement by
guitar virtuoso Steve Vie which he was influenced by a Mozart piece…then I transcribed this (nothing too) basic melody &
re-formed it into a frantic portrayal of a sailboat out in the huge storm driven seas…
