VAMOS AL BAILE ("Come to the Dance")
Featuring his own cheerful English lyrics, Travis Edmonson first recorded this lively saga of what goes on at a “baille” (dance, for want of a better word) with The Gateway Singers in 1957, and it remained a part of his repertoire ever after (also having been released as a Bud and Travis single). It definitely sweeps the listener away with the same precision that the confident suitor in the song expects to win the prettiest girl at the dance.

This distinctive mixing of a man-on-the-run song with an ethereal one about dreams and dream catchers is, for many Travis Edmonson admirers, the top favorite. Recorded on “Travis On His Own” and released as a single on Reprise, his voice exhibits a wondrous quality of immediacy which lends an additional sense of drama to the absorbing original.
WE LIVE TO LOVE
This evocative and intriguing song was recorded on the live album “On Cue.” Here is Travis Edmonson the poet at work. At times, verging on the inscrutable, it considers the mystery of life and love as they relate to youth and later years.
The listener is exhorted to reflect on the thought that, “the promise made in the spring of life should be fulfilled forever in the fall.” Or as the title implies, for the entirety of our existence, we should live to love.
An intermingling of dark and light shades, the philosophical piece has also hidden within it a tender love message, and the wistful question, “who knows why spring came so late for us?”
