The time is here for restless feet...
To move on...I'm on the road at last...
I might not be here tomorrow....
In no time...I'll be movin' fast
Road Fever...got a hold on me...
Road Fever...won't you set me free
The wind is at my back...
I drive on...into the new day...
Still...I have time to remember...
All the things I didn't say...

SCHEDULED FOR REMIX IN AUGUST, 2008
"Road Fever" is a song that Mark Easton came up with long before there ever was an Avalanche band. We had been doing the song for a few years, before Avalanche ever came into being. When Avalanche decided to do the tune, I wrote the middle section...which was all-new...and Mark and I rearranged the older parts of the song for the new group... but the "soaring" guitar and bass runs throughout the song that I had written for Mark's original version were left unchanged. The funny thing is... Michael Corsini and I worked out those parts nearly thirty years ago...and now...Michael is now the "newest" addition to the Avalanche lineup...and is doing a great job of filling the huge shoes of the late, great Charles Calmese...and those "soaring" parts still "work" on this tune. This version is the first time we have ever been able to even get this song recorded. It has been rearranged again... and updated... in order to be "current". This song gives Mark Easton a chance to really "shine"...and showcase his many skills and talents...as well as showing all the strengths of this band, as a unit. Michael Corsini's outstanding bass work...and Barry Easton's seasoned drumming are clearly evident on this track as well.
Mixing this song was a real challenge. This "mix" represents over 400 hours of Studio Mixing time...and was the greatest production challenge I have come up against so far. Bringing all the very subtle parts of this song into "clarity"... including Acoustic guitars being played side by side with Marshall powered guitars and "power" drums and bass...was one of the most difficult jobs I have ever faced in the studio. We are pretty pleased with the end result, and we hope you all enjoy it.
