The song itself can be heard on Rumer's YouTube page.

2008.07.10 "Here's Where I Belong - The Best Of The Dunhill Years 1965 - 1967", a 27-track compilation has been released on CD, made with the full cooperation of P.F. Sloan. It contains extensive liner notes and numerous previously unpublished photographs. Despite the title, it actually comes close to including every song he released at Dunhill, but due to time constraints, two songs from "Twelve More Times" have been omitted ("Patterns Seg. 4" and "When the Wind Changes"). Several tracks are making their first appearance on CD, most notably "I Can't Help But Wonder, Elizabeth", arguably the highlight of the collection. The album "Songs of Our Times" appears in mono, unlike the stereo tracks which appeared on the 1993 "Anthology" CD, as the mono version was considered to have a superior mix. Three singles, "City Women", "A Melody For You" and "Sunflower, Sunflower" appear in new, stereo 2008 mixes, mixed by Andrew Sandoval with Bill Inglot, and all of the stereo tracks have been remastered.

2005.12.05 The concert at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville was so well-received that P. F. Sloan has been invited back to perform a 2-hour show in 2006.

2005.12.04 The bulk of recording for the new album has been completed. 20 songs (12 new songs, 8 "favorites") were recorded over a 20-day period. All that remains to be done is:
1. Add guest artist vocals and guitar solos to 3 songs ("Eve of Destruction", "Love Is Forgiving", "Sins of a Family").
2. Remix a few songs.
3. Master the album.

In total, approximately 15 musicians perform on it. P. F. Sloan described the sessions as "The best recording experience I have had since Dunhill", having had a producer who was willing to incorporate all his ideas. Indeed, initial feedback from the sessions has been extremely positive.

2005.11.11 There is a concert at:
The Bluebird Cafe,
4104 Hillsboro Rd.,
TN 37215
Tel: 615-383-1461

It starts at 21:30 on 2005.11.11 (Friday).
Cost: $10:00.
Also appearing at this evening entitled "In The Round" is Don Henry, Gary Nicholson and Russell Smith. The "In The Round" format is described as follows: "Four talented writers, sitting in a circle, sharing songs and inspiration. This format, inspired by Fred Knobloch and Don Schlitz, has become an important part of Bluebird tradition. The audience is given a unique opportunity to hear great original material from four different points-of-view in a casual, comfortable environment. A chance to discover up-and-coming writers or to hear hits, new and old, from some of the best of the best."

2005.11.01 A new album will be recorded at Hormone Studios, Nashville, Tennessee. Recording will begin around 2005.11.02, and continue throughout November. 14 songs are planned to be recorded. 10 of these are new:
Violence (ahimsa) (Sloan)
Whatever God Wants (Sloan)
Love is Forgiving (Sloan-Tiven)
Diamond Dust (All That Words Allow) (Sloan)
Matthews World (Sloan)
Wild Strawberries (Sloan)
Across The Night (Sloan)
The Soul Of The Woman (Sloan-Kalinich)
Sailover (Sloan-Tiven)
P.K. And The Evil Dr. Z (Sloan)

4 of these are "favorites":
Sins of A Family
From A Distance
Eve of Destruction
Where Were You When I Needed You

This is to be a guitar-based album, hence the absence of piano-based songs, such as the opus-in-progress "My Beethoven".

Jon Tiven: Producer.

Additional Musicians:
Garry W. Tallent (of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band): Bass on 4 songs.
Tom Peterson (of Cheap Trick): Bass on 4 songs.
Bruce Boughton (of Garth Brooks' band): Steel pedal on 2 songs.
Frank Black (of The Pixies): Backing vocals / harmonies on 2 songs.
Felix Cavaliere (of The Rascals): Organ on "Soul of the Woman"; Top background vocal on "Where Were You When I Needed You".

There will also be some surprises...

2003.06.03 The same label that will be releasing "Measure of Pleasure" also plans to release the 2 Dunhill albums on a 2-in-1 CD.

2003.06.02 There are plans to reissue "Measure of Pleasure" on CD around September 2003. It seems probable that there will not be any bonus tracks.

2002.01.01 The "Child Of Our Times" CD sold in sufficient amounts (currently approximately 3,000 copies) for Varese Sarabande to decide to release a second volume. This should appear at some point in 2002.
