Promo for Soft Dangerous Shores

SDS poster

Several years ago, Hiroshi Suda sent me a Macromedia Flash Player file of a multi-media promo for Soft Dangerous Shores. It’s a beautiful thing, made all the more beautiful because “Fireroad (for Two)” plays throughout it.  Towards the end, a statement – presumably from Chris – appears on the screen.  I’ve captured (most) of it here:

These are not really songs.  Each song is more like a little clip, a picture.  The whole record is more like a little road movie.  Each song has a cinematic quality if you “listen” to it like a visual picture.  I would rather call it cyber folk blues film shorts than a singer/songwriter album.

You can download the SDS Flash Player file here [Note:  Macromedia Flash Player must be installed on your device; you can download from Adobe here].

  1. Thank you, Katie for keeping this vigil on the life of Chris Whitley.
    He is an American treasure.
