Songs of –h is a limited edition CD compilation of howie’s best music, selected with the help of MFR listeners. One hundred copies were made, and this release will not be distributed digitally.
The compilation features three exclusive tracks:
- A new acoustic recording of “Major & Minor,” made especially for Songs of –h
- “Stop Walking (live),” an unreleased cut from howie&scott’s “Summer’s End” sessions
- “Set You Ablaze” from Lone Prairie Records’ “Killers in the Nebraska Territory” compilation, never before available on Mr. Furious Records
In addition to the following tracks, Songs of –h comes in a handmade oragami case designed by Tim Gillespie and includes two pages of liner notes from howie.
The material comes from howie’s MFR output including releases by Sally Ride, echoes, and howie&scott.
Songs of -h was originally created in 2008 to raise funds for a house-building trip to Tijuana. Since then, it’s been a search for the right cause to finish the project, until arriving at the Greg Rawlings Scholarship fund.
