Thanks for the kind words Bengan.  I'm glad you derived some enjoyment 
from our work.  I'm attaching a file of lyrics for this year's RPM09 as 
well as RPM08 to songs I contributed, including some that never got 
done.  I'll also post this in the /user_frank directory of our project 

I never found enough time to get either my vocals or my guitar parts 
right.  I struggle with singing in making it sound like a singer's voice 
rather than someone crooning in the shower!  Part of my problem was 
sitting down in front of a microphone rather than standing up, dancing 
around, and getting in the "spirit" of a performance.   That's me on 
Candle, Eca's chorus, Freedom, Jack, Soft, and Took.

Again, really appreciate your song-by-song comments.
