A Peace of Time

A Peace of Time


7 song taste of music that was recorded live in the studio and features recordings of TESLA’s own songs in a different fashion as well as a few covers that we love. Set to be released for the Holiday season, there is a recording of the Christmas classic “Silent night” and alternate recordings of TESLA classics.

I LOVE YOU (climax blues band)
This track was the first song that Tesla recorded in the studio together when reuniting in 2000 after the 5 year break-up. JK asked the band to record this song to be played at his wedding.

Another beautiful love song, this song really showcases JK’s vocal ability and TESLA’S ability to “own” a classic cover. Transposed using a capo and teslafied during the guitar solo, this track captures TESLA chemistry.

This is a very raunchy version of our top 10 hit recorded “live” in the studio with a little more grit and attitude than the 5 man “acoustic” version.

We recorded this version in the studio after coming home from the Canadian “acoustic” tour. It is a stripped down version and we opted to sing it a bit lower to make it more soulful and played the guitar parts with a softer touch.

Not much to say about this track except it is one of our favorite songs we’ve written and our fans seem to love it as much if not more today than ever. This recording is a Hybrid version of acoustic and electric complete with the guitar solo being played acoustically and the twangy country licks complementing JK’s soulful lyrics.

I’D LOVE TO CHANGE THE WORLD (ten years after)
A Great song! This track was originally considered for the “REAL TO REEL” set list but somehow got left behind. This is a “live” demo version recorded in the studio and we wanted to convey a fierce “Guitar” battle between Frank and Tommy. There is a lot of aggression in the music and JK put some serious vibes in the vocals.

This recording is an acoustic arrangement put together by Frank Hannon as a bonus track for the EP’s release in December for Christmas. The melody is beautiful and is reminiscent of TESLA’s “LOVE SONG” intro with classical guitar lines and finger picking. To add to the arrangement, there are Dobro slide parts and a Mandolin outro added to enhance the holiday spirit. Enjoy!

    Will you please release this as a physical CD. Even if it is in short/limited quantities. I am an avid CD collector, like those who collect(ed) vinyl. I’d love the disc for my giant wall!

    Ya! Please release this in C.D. format! I don’t want to buy a membership to emusic! They require it in order to download music from them. I just want the only Tesla music I don’t own yet! Please, please, please, release it on C.D! Thanks!

    I would also like a CD version of this. I do not purchase MP3s, they do not sound as good as CDs through a home stereo.

    Somehow I can’t find this for purchase. Used to have it on my computer but I can’t seem to find it so I would like to buy it again but can’t seem to find the correct link. Any help??

    TC (or anyone), I simply cannot find this anywhere for download purchase! Though I would like a CD for the collector aspect, I would be more than happy to pay @ itunes or Amazon to get a copy of this album. With Christmas coming up, could this be put into either of those two venues so we can have access to “Silent Night” in its entirety? Thanks!

    Million comments on here about either re-releasing the MP3s on itunes (or amazon) or issuing limited edition CDs. Please! TC, can you talk to the guys about this? This is the ONLY recording that a lot of us are missing from our collection. Literally. I feel empty inside without it 🙂

      Agree! I can’t find this anywhere and I’d love to have this in my collection. I think I have every album Tesla has made but not this one. When will this be available again??? It’s not on amazon, or iTunes, or emusic!

    I would absolutely love to be able to obtain a copy of this on either CD or mp3 format. I love Tesla and was very disappointed we couldn’t see you perform in Tampa due to the lightning. Thank you for continuing to make and release albums of new material and continued success to you all.
