UPDATED: "And Hiding Away" video update

Updated: The "And Hiding Away" music video has been posted to YouTube.

9:48 AM, 10/15/06
When I first learned of the AHA video, I was under the impression it was never released because to my knowledge it had never aired on MTV unlike all of the other videos. It may or may not have aired locally or nationally, however it was distributed. Today, I purchased a copy of Alternavision #21 from Concrete Corner Marketing, which so far to my knowledge, is the only released version of the video.

Lyrics...TTRG & "Do You See My Brothers Coming?"

For the good or the bad depending on your point of view, it would seem that over the years I never realized that I had forgotten to include the actual link to the Tending The Rose Garden lyrics. They had been uploaded to the site, but the link was not available. That has now been corrected.

Secondly, Karen has released the lyrics to "Do You See My Brothers Coming?" along with a stream of the song. If you've never heard it, be sure to check it out. The song can be purchased on the French release of We Walked In Song through the Fargo Store.
