"Sacred Place" is a song that was written and recorded in the aftermath of the September 11 tragedy, paying tribute to victims, survivors, first responders, rescue workers, volunteers, police and firefighters. It bears witness to the grief, gratitude and sense of unity that developed amongst complete strangers, both local and from afar, who offered their need to help in any way they possibly can, and reflects on the dichotomy of those shared emotions. This recording consists of vocal and acoustic guitar by Tony Noe, with slide Dobro riffs contributed by Fellow New Yorker Vinnie Zummo.
"Rescue (acoustic version)" is an Americana Rock ballad that pays homage to civilians and military personnel who risk and sacrifice their lives in order to save and protect others. It begins generically, then travels through time from September 11 and eventually pays tribute to the World War II generation. This is the original acoustic version, that was recorded at the same time as "Sacred Place", however it was later re-recorded, orchestrated and released as part of two other projects. Special Guest Vinnie Zummo performed the faux Pedal Steel Guitar.
