    Sanford Townsend Band - Smoke From A Distant Fire

    3:30

    You left me here on your way to paradise
    You pulled the rug right out from under my life
    I know where you goin' to I knew when you came home last night
    'Cause your eyes had a mist from the smoke of a distant fire

    Lord, I was stunned shoulda' seen it come a long time ago.
    When I realized the reality gave me a roll
    If things are the same then explain why your kiss is so cold
    And that mist in your eyes feels like rain on the fire in my soul

    This lying, and cryin', it's upsettin' and gettin' ya no where
    It don't stack up, so slack up and pack up
    I just don't care
    Don't let the screen door hit you, on your way out.
    Don't you drown when your dream boat runs onto the ground

    (BREAK)

    I'd just like to know do you love him or just making time
    By filling his glass with your fast flowing bitter-sweet lime.
    He'll taste the aftertaste when you come home late some night.
    With your eyes all a mist from the smoke of a distant fire.

    Girl your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a distant fire.
    (Girl your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a distant fire)
    Girl your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a distant fire.
    (Girl your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a distant fire)
    Girl your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a distant fire.
    (Mist in your eyes from a distant fire)
    Girl your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a dis...
    A distant Fire

    Sanford Townsend- Sunshine In My Heart Again

    From their debut album SMOKE FROM A DISTANT FIRE in 1977. Great harmony and tight musicianship are their trademarks. A band that should have lasted longer.

    Sanford Townsend - Mississippi Sunshine

    Great duet from the 70's-excellent musicians and tight harmonies. This song NOT from their one-hit wonder debut album Smoke From A Distant Fire but from their 2nd LP Duo-Glide 1977 (KUDOS TO OZAMBESI FOR UPDATING ME). Give a listen. They should not have been one-hit wonders...

    Paradise by The Sanford Townsend Band

    3:21

    The Sanford-Townsend Band was a blue-eyed soul group featuring Alabama keyboardists Ed Sanford (from Montgomery, AL) and Johnny Townsend (from Tuscaloosa, AL), who previously worked together in a Tuscaloosa-based band called Heart, not to be confused with the band of the same name fronted by Ann & Nancy Wilson from Seattle/Vancouver.

    After reuniting in Los Angeles, Sanford and Townsend signed a publishing deal with Chappell Music and began writing songs, most notably Peacemaker for Loggins and Messina, which was co-written by the duo with Kenny Loggins.

    Their 1976 self-titled album started getting attention when Smoke from a Distant Fire reached No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 in Cash Box, recorded at the famous Muscle Shoals Sound Studios in Alabama. The album was re-released using the song title as its own. The band supported the song by opening for Fleetwood Mac on their Rumours Tour, as well as concerts with the Marshall Tucker Band, Charlie Daniels, Jimmy Buffett, Foreigner, Heart and others.

    The band's follow-up albums, entitled Duo-Glide and Nail Me to the Wall, were significantly less successful. Sanford and Townsend returned to their careers as session musicians and songwriters.

    Ed Sanford co-wrote I Keep Forgettin' with Michael McDonald, which appeared on McDonald's debut solo album in 1982. In 2008, John Townsend formed the Toler/Townsend Band with Dan Toler. Townsend's tenor voice remains substantially unchanged from thirty years prior.

    Sweet song and harmony from a group that unfortunately is known as a one hit wonder (Smoke From A Distant Fire). They had so much more to give but it did not pan out for them. Give a listen and I think you will enjoy this-great little saxophone solo in the middle too.
