Great Harbors - Written, produced, recorded and performed by Tyler Cartner with the exception of additional backing vocals by Brandis Rodriguez.

Another song about home and childhood.

Going Home (Live)- Written by Tyler Cartner, performed by the Almost. (Tyler Cartner: Lead Vocal and Guitar, Lucy Baker: Backing Vocal, Bass, John Rodriguez: Percussion, Dana Hilde: Flute)

This song was written while stationed in Okinawa Japan. Although I loved my stay on that beautiful little island there were times that I was horny for home. Usually it would be late at night, alone in the barracks. The performance here was with my old band "the Almost." It was our last show together and was recorded live in February of 1998 in San Louis Obispo California at a swank little bohemian joint called Linnaea's. She wasn't around that weekend and let us stay at her house. She said, "the door is always open, just let yourself in and make yourself at home," and we did.

Just another self-affirmation song.

Shady (Live)- Written by Tyler Cartner, performed by the Almost.

Written for a woman in a bad relationship.

Saturdays (Live)- Written by Tyler Cartner, performed by the Almost.

This is probably the only truly joyful song I've ever written.
