This is an "Americana" Remixed version of the 2005 release, Just Believe It. Vocals less affected and more prominent, and overall sound more organic, akin to the sound of Lighthouse. We recorded a few additional musicians on a few tracks as well, so some songs sound more different than others from the original recording.
