More about the recording:
The Ray Korona Band's first recording, FREE HARBORS includes both highly satirical songs such as Maybe You're A Yuppie, Job Song, New Age Department Store and Paper and the folklike ballads Melinda, We're Like The Seasons and Message Of Peace. It also offers story songs: Jennifer's Music, Tide Of Love, Where Do We Go From Here? (featured in a New York Magazine article) and Grampa Took A Walk. The title song, Free Harbors, was a winner of the Mobilization for Survival peace song contest. This is truly a songwriter's album. It features the only available recordings of some of Ray's most requested songs, but it was recorded before he developed the singing style that is now so much a part of his later recordings and live performances.
