TAKE OFF YOUR OLD COAT

A far cry from the blithe and happy songs which populated Travis Edmonson's repertoire, or for that matter, thegentle and romantic ones, “Take Off Your Old Coat” refers to a different side of the life experience, where toil and struggle are not alleviated by light-hearted times or even love.  His own composition, it reveals the dedicated social conscience which directed Travis Edmonson's off-stage life.

TALKIN' GUITAR BLUES

Travis Edmonson always dedicated this Woody Guthrie fun song to all those  struggling to learn to play the guitar, as an encouragement to indicate that the great maestro of the instrument himself, encountered similar experiences when just starting out.


THEY CALL THE WIND MARIAH

The Broadway hit from “Paint Your Wagon” fit into Travis Edmonson's repertoire like a glove, and may even have been an inspiration for his own “South Wind.”  Always a popular number with audiences, the intensity he could generate into the song brought out all its electricity.


THE THINGS I'VE SAVED

This thoughtful bequest of special gifts appeared on “Travis On His Own,” and is an original composition of the singers, one of his mellowest performances on record.  Its poetic list of wishes, set out as a legacy, reminds us that the most important things we leave behind to friends and loved ones are the cherished memories.


THE TIME OF MAN

Travis Edmonson's explicit  juxtaposition of a natural world in harmony against one where life no longer existed was a warning against nuclear proliferation which could not fail to reach anyone alive.  The lyrics were written into The Congressional Record after he and Bud Dashiell unprecedentedly performed the piece before a joint session of the U.S. Congress.  Referring to it as his “theme song,” Travis Edmonson included it  among the selections for the Reprise LP “On His Own” along with a recitation of his poem “A Ghost Earth.”



TRULY DO

Some of his admirers may not be aware that this tasty track from the first Liberty LP, “Bud and Travis,” was also on the Fleetwoods hit,"Runaround." But no one who ever bought the hit single failed to notice the silky ballad by composer Travis Edmonson which was always a favorite of Fleetwoods fans.  Also released as a Bud and Travis single.
