Stories behind the songs of the Mountain Town Audio CD: The Title Song, "Mountain Town", well being as I lived all my life in a Mountain Town (Flagstaff, Arizona) I have noticed and realized how lucky I have been to grow up in a place that has the beauty of all four seasons, the fresh air, some majestic mountains to look at, and of course, a place I have called home all my life. All these things and more have inspired these songs.
The song Titled "I was Built for One", was written in tribute to the South Beaver School. This school was built back in 1935. A school that I personally attended from kindergarten thru the 7th grade. The song is written in imagination as though, what the school would have to say if it could only talk. The songs "Forest Fire Fighters" and "Masters of th Road" are songs that were written in recoginition and in tribute to some unsung hero's that work around, and protect this Mountain Town.
The song "Old Town, Plaza Vieja" is a song of a place where people first started to settle down at, when they came to this Mountain town. The song "Mind of the Wise and Old" is a song that says a lot about our senior citizens and brings our attention to their wealth of knowledge and experiences that they have lived. The lyrics for this song were written by my brother Jimmy Diaz. And the song titled "Flag Stuff" is just an instrumental song that makes me think of all the fun things that go on in this Mountain Town.
All of these songs are originals and were produced and recorded by me. Also all the instruments you will hear on this audio CD are played by me as well (sort of a one-man band) which was done using a multi-track recording system. My son, Jay Diaz, helped on three of the songs, (playing Bass Guitar). Overall, it took about 3 years to write, record, mix, and publish this audio CD.
