John wrote this somewhere around 1972 or 1973. This is pretty much a song about the conflict of self vs. what you think is expected of you and the casualties that are impacted along the way. There was probably a lot of James Taylor influence…

This is a song about someone John met when he moved to Arizona in 1975. A brief encounter that left inspiration for a song.

Carl was inspired by Bruce Springsteen's "Western Stars" album and wrote this song. As with other of his songs, I imported his recording of him playing guitar and singing and then added a few other things. There is a lot in the words here.

Carl has a lot of his music up on SoundCloud. This is one of Carl's songs that John discovered there and helped spawn the thought of getting Carl's help for the RPM Challenge. It seems this is a song recalling a time when there was someone…

This song is about my Grandparent's farm that was in West Virginia. The name "Naugatuck" is derived from an Algonquian term meaning "lone tree by the fishing place". The rich memories I have of the place are from when I was just shy of my sixth…

Ellison/Haarer consists of of two old friends who started playing and writing music together in Portsmouth, NH sometime around 1983. Many years have passed and the RPM Challenge gave the opportunity for John (recently retired) and Carl (partially retired) to collaborate again. Some of these songs were written by John (Ellison) in the early 70s. Some were written by Carl (Haarer) during the past few years. And a couple were written by Carl during February based on some stories and memories John shared with him. Due to Covid-19 Carl’s only visit to John’s studio was via digital download. RPM Challenge has been an extra kick this year as it provided a vehicle for two old buddies to reconnect.
