Sarah's album with the Art of Time (Track list)

In August I revealed some details about Sarah recording songs from the 'Great Toronto Songbook' with the Art of Time Ensemble. At the time of that posting, I was able to speculate to what songs might make the album based on the song set list from the concerts.

The official track listing for the album has now been posted on Phermone Recordings who have signed the 'Art of Time Ensemble with Sarah Slean'. The on sale date of the album is still listed as 'Coming Soon'. Four songs are available to preview but did not play smoothly on my attempts to play them. They are hosting a stunning 45MB high resolution photo of both Sarah and Andrew Burashko of the Art of Time.

01 Hey That’s No Way To Say Goodbye
02 Monarch
03 Black Flowers
04 I’ll Never Tear You Apart
05 Lodestar
06 You Give Me Something To Cry About
07 Dandelion Wine
08 Eyes Are The Flowers
09 Dress Rehearsal Rag
10 No More Named Johnny

The album contains each song that Sarah performed at the concert with the exception To Cry About (Mary-Margaret O'Hara), Stride (Hayden) I Don't Need More (Katheryn Rose) and The Lonely Side of The Moon.

Update 2009-01-30:
I have been advised the samples do play fine in Internet Explorer. An unconfirmed release date is for April. I will create a new post when that can be confirmed.

Update 2009-04-07:
I have been updated that the release date has been changed to June 2, 2009.
