I Am the Heart cover

(This cassette available only at live shows or by contacting us.)

I Am The Heart (1988) is the third recording by Geoff Bartley. Ten of the twelve songs here are Bartley originals, and all were recorded live in the studio using only Geoff's voice, guitar, and harmonica. The only over-dubbed track is the second guitar on Green Street Blues.

Fans of Bartley's work will recognize his signature touch on folk-blues style acoustic guitar & harmonica, and will enjoy this collection for its plain-spoken love songs, its social & political commentary, and for its liberal doses of humor.
