  1. When I Know

Side 2:

  1. Strength for Life

I’m not really sure what this is. Well, it is obviously a pre-release sampler for a 1991 release called Strength for Life on ForeFront Records. But that release seems to have never happened. There also appear to be no other releases on ForeFront that year or the next few that would match these songs. A planned project that never panned out I guess? No band members are listed on the tape – just the producers (Don Sternecker, Mike O. Young, and Trip Costner). Were they members of the band? The first song has female vocals, so I don’t think that is a list of everyone in the band if so. The first song is kind of like a slightly alternative female-fronted rock song. The second song has male lead vocals, but a similar sound. The music is not far from Sixpence None the Richer – just imagine them with different vocalists. The weird thing is – something is familiar about both of the vocalists, I just can’t place it at the moment.
