Devil's Trail [12" Mix]

from Devil's Trail by Ed Randazzo



In March 2016 I was approached by friend & fellow music maker, Tony Halchak to contribute new, original material to the third installment of his project, Brew Sessions. An event where homebrewers, musicians, and artists combine their talents to raise money for a local charity.

Naturally, I chose "Devil's Trail" from the list of titles and got busy. I was initially quite nervous being that I'd never written anything for a particular record outside of my own work. Challenge accepted. The lyrics came within five minutes and Tony had the guitar scratch demo soon after. This would be our first time collaborating musically. I took inspiration from the American folk tune, The Butcher Boy derived from the early 20th century traditional English ballads. Tony added his Spaghetti Western twist and we'd record the track together live, in one take, while sharing a good Scotch.

Collected Songs features the previously unreleased 12" Mix of Devil's Trail. Tony & Bret Alexander got together and cooked this up. It was a complete surprise to me!
It ended up being included here as a way to reintroduce the song to those who may have missed out on it the first time around.
