this cover art does not look familiar, and the song on there (Cristine) I certainly have not heard before either

A new Kraig cd would be very cool.

It actually will be new old material - stuff that's been recorded over the last decade, dating all the way back to the earliest Program era (2003/4). Kraig has stockpiled a fairly large stash of material over the years, much of it recorded at Flowers Studio in Mpls. The stars are aligning and it looks like there will finally be some activity from Kraig this year, including live shows. Stay tuned.

I saw kraig play a gig in the Fine Line club when I was over visiting relatives in St Paul from Scotland about 8 years ago . Both Marc & Gary were there that night watching but did not get up to play . I've also got a copy of kraid's cd which took along time to find a copy of

This is for the version that came out in Spain on the Bittersweet label - 10 songs versus 7 on the domestic version. There has been talk of reissuing this; hopefully that will happen some day. Regardless of the version, it's a fantastic record that has been sadly overlooked/forgotten, largely due to its haphazard distribution and lack of promotion.

It would be nice to have the additional 3 songs.

I bought the cd in 2003, on a show the Wednesday before Thanksgiving at the 400 Bar. I bought more than one copy as I know there was at least one friend from out of town who wanted a copy. 2002-2003 I was lucky to catch a few Kraig shows opening for SA/Pirner Solo as well as headlining places.

I don't have the cd handy (let alone if I could even find it...), but what 3 songs are new on this version?

The cd that came out in Spain includes these songs:

1- Song for everyone
2- Outta town
3- 4YK
4- Soul Parade
5- Right to Me
6- Green Love
7- So Silently
8- Freight Train
9- Lonely Man
10- The Sun is Signed & Sealed

I keep great memories from the 2007 unforgettable tour by Gary, Kraig, and Paco Loco. Kraig used to open the night and play some of these songs. Amazing nights.

Looking forward to seeing them in three days!;)

Outta Town, Green Love and Lonely Man were added to the Spanish Bittersweet release. Both releases came out in 2004 with the same cover. The domestic version is long out of print and I'm pretty sure the Bittersweet version is too, although I've run across used copies on Discogs now and then. I hope it can be reissued at some point in the not too distant future. If that happens it will definitely be the 10 song version
