Bo Weavil 02:24
(trad. / arr. Laino) Rollin' down the way Bo Weavil Rollin' down the way...
Boogie Tale 03:16
Dirty dirty things along these streets I'm bound to despite what people are saying and what I'm thinking along this road I'm riding along those strange mountains rolling on and on rolling on and on and I'm in (it) yeah sinking sinking down we all are thinking we all are running while we're are sleeping we all are burning down burning burning down burning burning down burning burning down and I'm in it chatting chatting around not in the dark sky not in my cold room not in this town I'm leaving not in my dad's house nowhere but in this car chatting chatting 'round chatting chatting 'round and I'm in it
(Laino / Alfonsi) I feel my wrecked soul is breathing hard today under this heavy sky playing all the time with no friends of mine I just need to have a busy mind well I just don't care... Wearing my obsessions is all I got leading out my pain living day by day I forgot how to pray there's nothing I can do and I don't know what to say, Lord I remember my mama used to say: “You better stay away from those games I tell you son there's a gambler root in your blood” And I answered: “Sure mama I can't do nothing about it those roots in my blood are getting my soul” Now I try to remember when that day my mind was so young, I knew how to pray down on my knees I was begging the saints to tear down the signs that were planted on my way I say planted on my way like road signs that says “roots are quite hard to extirpate” Now I tell you people I began to realize There was too much fun to gamble with fate
(Laino / Alfonsi) Road, hard road I'm walking on an old road I left my shoeshine back while I was thinking about my past Streets running by remind me of some old times when things were happening like a child I stood and stare 'cause memories are strange hiding in some place way back in time like the steps in our life I wonder why some people don't remind what it came like a song or in the sleep when I was young It's an old tape of memories an old tape I've lost yes it is... Hiss on a tape talks about my fate indeed about my past that disappear too fast Right in the place I'm in a room stuffed with books, things and sounds chasing me all around Shearing is beating hard on his piano in my backyard with a silly little smile Kerouac by his side Brought out of a song things that belong to a time that is gone is it mine or is it yours? It's just a room full of memories an old tape I've lost It's just an old tape of memories an old tape I've lost
(Laino / Alfonsi) Seems the past is knocking on my door today I'm walking these dusty roads are going to make me think The taste of what I once was made of is running through my skin and open my eyes Now I see all the sad things and all the grace has grown from my head down to my heart This is how I feel, today Sad and grateful, today Collecting stones and bones Past is like the dust I own Would you please tell me how did you feel when I betrayed you my friend just because The place where I used to hide myself is getting smaller and smaller once again Sometimes I feel the sun is shining over my aching shoulders and I can live again Don't know how I feel, today It's kind of sad and grateful, today Collecting stones and bones Past is like the dust I own There's an empty bottle and another one's full of wine There are feelings that sometimes it's hard to keep hiding I counted all my days just trying to grow old but I’ve found a way today I can use to rise above I feel the past is covering my shoulders like dust (x2)
On the Wood 05:19
I feel blue in the morning I feel blue in the evening I'm on a train that is riding far away Some people talk about glory others talk about lies what makes me think of you makes me drink sometimes The drums are rumbling Look at the colors at the fair A dwarf is juggling I can see they are going home Balloons are drifting over the child's hair it's red and blue the color soundtrack of my despair As I walk through the saloon I see a cowboy dummy Alabama song is playing it's my heart that is humming I feel my heart that is swinging I see a rose that is fading no one knows what I'm saying 'cause I'm going insane I can hardly betray the one who’s calling on my name I can feel it is the same we carved on the wood that day on the wood that day on the wood that day
Oh when I wake up don't know what to do but sometimes I say that wanna do it with you Down in my belly I can feel my head is turning back to what once was dead Well now I'm laid down down in my bed trying to forget what once was dead
A tree is knocking at my door I see a message on the floor it says “you can fly till the shore” But it's a dream that’s going on a dream I'm living on a dream we're hangin' on but I can't wake myself up Leaves are growing in my shoes from here I can see all the skulls left on the road by the fools
Pay Day 04:31
(John “Mississippi” Hurt / arr. Laino) Well I did all I can do but I can't get along with you I'm gonna take you to your mamy Pay day, pay day, pay day There's a rabbit in a log and I got no rabbit dog and I can't stand to see that rabbit get away Get away, get away Just about a week ago I stole a ham of meat I'm gonna keep my skillet greasy if I can If I can, if I can Now the hounds are on my track I got a knapsack on my back I'm gonna make it to my shanty before day 'Fore day, 'fore day


"On the mellower side, the album ends with a sweet cover of Mississippi John Hurt’s “Pay Day"
- Steve Terrell, Steve Terrell's Music (Santa Fe, USA) May 2017

"Blues acustici con bottleneck da paura, svisate elettriche di boogie distorti, accompagnati dal ritmo del sousaphone, condite da testi sospesi tra "dark" e "dirty love" e sonorità da Delta del Mississippi. Disco ipnotico e convincente"
- Andrea Tevarini, Buscadero, maggio 2017

"E’ proprio nel lato più sciamanico ed arcaico della musica blues, nelle sue reminiscenze africane, che prende forma la poetica di Andrea Laino"
- Pietro Rubino, Il Popolo del Blues, Aprile 2017

"l'eco tonante e sanguigna di un juke-joint nel cuore del Mississippi"
- Elio Bussolino, Rockerilla, aprile 2017

"qualcosa di emozionante"
- Paolo Vites, Il Sussidiario, marzo 2017

"Sotto la cenere la passione di New Orleans"
- Flavio Massarutto, Il Manifesto, aprile 2017

"letteralmente magnifico!"
- Stefano I. Bianchi, Blow Up, aprile 2017

"Die Komposition "The Dust In Own" ist ein außergewöhnlicher Hinhörer"
- Von Joachim "Joe" Brooks, RockTimes, April 2017

"Wer Blues ohne Klischees und mit Ecken und Kanten mag, wird diese Scheibe lieben!"
- Wasser-Prawda, Marz 2017

"Laino & Broken Seeds‘ „The Dust I Own“ ist erdig, dreckig, verraucht, schräg und mitreißend – elektrisierend – vom Scheitel bis zur wippenden Sohle – cool"
- Dr. Chuck, Soultrain April 2017
