about

This album includes live performances of the complete album, The Galactic Collective, performed at The Rites of Spring Festival 2011 along with the “Into the Sunset Suite” and the Norlander-penned Lana Lane songs, “Capture the Sun” and “Secrets of Astrology” creatively woven into medleys that extend the celestial theme with guest vocals by Erik's wife, symphonic rock diva Lana Lane, and favorite Asheville, NC vocalist, Debrissa McKinney.

The live band on this recording is completed with the core musicians from The Galactic Collective studio album: Mark Matthews (b), Nick LePar (d) and Freddy DeMarco (d). Erik's live keyboard arsenal here includes his famous "Wall of Doom" modular Moog synthesizer.

Live in Gettysburg is the companion to its partner release, The Galactic Collective - Digital Deluxe Edition, that contains the complete studio recordings.

Track Name: Capture the Sun - live 2011
Love, we captured the sun
And now that is done
It's time to go home

Love, we walked in the rain
Survived the pain
And all that remains

The visions of eastern dreams
Sail on eternally
The wonder and mystery
Echoes in endless sea

Somewhere out of a dream
The faces unseen
Longing for hope
Trying to cope

Somewhere out of a dream
In starlight serene
Trying to believe
The pathway will weave
Out of a dream

Love, we captured the sun
It's over and done
Tears in the rain

Love, we walked down the road
Carried the load
Castles in air

It's some kind of fantasy
Twilight enternally
Shadows and mysteries
Moonlight and symphonies

Somewhere out of a dream
The faces unseen
Longing for hope
Trying to cope

Somewhere out of a dream
In starlight serene
Trying to believe
The pathway will weave
Out of a dream

Love, we captured the sun
And now that is done
It's time to go home

Love, we walked in the rain
Survived the pain
And all that remains

The visions of eastern dreams
Sail on eternally
The wonder and the mystery
Echoes in endless sea

Somewhere out of a dream
The faces unseen
Longing for hope
Trying to cope

Somewhere out of a dream
In starlight serene
Trying to believe
The pathway will weave
Out of a dream
Track Name: Secrets of Astrology - live 2011
In the canopy of stars
Are secrets of the nine centuries
Between Venus, Earth and Mars
Symbols of the ancient fantasies

Signs of life
Cross the starry the sky

Moonlight dances on the water
Rivers flow into the sea
Stars align in perfect order
Secrets of Astrology

In an age of metaphor
The search for epiphones
Between here and evermore
From Atlantis to the Pleiades

Signs of life
Cross the starry the sky

Moonlight dances on the water
Rivers flow into the sea
Stars align in perfect order
Secrets of Astrology
Fire burns across heavens
Time will flow like mystery
Find the source of holy water
Secrets of Astrology

On nights when stars shine bright
Over mountains near the sea
Like candles on a lonely night
They light infinity
And when the stars align
High in the sky
I wonder where they hide away
When morning drowns the night

Signs of life
Cross the starry the sky ...
Track Name: Into the Sunset - live 2011
Time slips away
Over before it’s done
And I haven’t changed
Much more than anyone

Well I can see, I can see
All that I used to be, used to be
And so I’ll sail away, sail away
With what is left of me, left of me
Into the sunset

Time’s hurricane
Began when we were young
And faster than change
Soon all the songs were sung

But time will tell, time will tell
I said to the wishing well, wishing well
And even though the sky is blue, the clouds are gray
All sold out and gone away, gone today
Into the sunset

Time slips away
Glory is all but done
And gone are the days
Into the rising sun

Oh I can see, I can see
Time fly away from me, away from me
It’s gotten out of hand, out of reach
I walk long along the coast, cross the beach
Into the sunset
Track Name: Hymn - live 2011
Time flies like an arrow
From here to heaven
It soars over mountains
To deep blue oceans
We walk in the valley
We fear no evil
We love to our limits
We seek forgiveness
Track Name: Into the Sunset Reprise - live 2011
Time slips away
Over before it’s done
The constant of change
Touches us everyone

And I can see, I can see
What lies ahead of me, ahead of me
I found the holy grail, Arthur’s grail
Beating inside of me, guiding me
Into the sunset
