Spokeswoman of the Bright Sun (Glitterhouse Records)
”Our album was recorded during a Joshua Tree summer basically inside our cabin/home but sometimes outside on the porch“, says Mark “it was warm and I was making a lot of strange ice teas, brewing recipes that came from an herb book I had bought at the local thrift store. We went right from writing, to rehearsal to recording in the May, June and July time period and I think that is the secret to making a unique album, keeping the momentum of the writing and part learning of the song as you move towards to final takes.”Recorded with Ingunn Ringvold,Mark’s wife and musical partner in life and music.
Hitchhiker (Reprise Records)
Originally recorded in 1976 with producer David Briggs but never released, the acoustic album from the Canadian singer-songwriter features two unreleased songs as well as early versions of songs that appeared in later albums. “For fans of Neil Young in the ’70s–his pretty undeniable peak–this one is fantastic. Beyond that, it could easily serve as an introduction to a generation that hasn’t heard his music.” (The A.V. Club)
