Cathedral in the Desert by James Finch Jr.

The song was originally appeared on the “Sonny and the Sandwitches” EP (Empty Cellar, 2010).

I am uploading some recordings I have done of my friends’ songs to my SoundCloud page. The project is called “you are my friend because I love you and not the other way around”- I know, a very Patchenesque title… Anyway, more to follow. For now enjoy these numbers originally performed by Lee Robert Watson, Noah Nelson, John Murry, and Sonny Smith. Lots Of Jackpot connections here…  –James Finch Jr. (Jackpot, Two Sheds)
