Blue Creek Valley Farm
Released: Sep 1, 2006
Label: Mark Fielding Darden
A thirteen song collection plus a 60 page book of stories and pictures about a small fishing village off the coast of North Carolina called Salter Path. The music takes you on a delightful and historical journey through the times and lives of these salt-worn, hard-working people. The quaint little town is now sandwiched between new condos and resorts. Will this town survive?

Featured on National Public Radio (NPR) shortly after its release in 2006, this CD and book have been best-sellers up and down the Crystal Coast and Outer Banks of North Carolina. It's a timeless collection of great, original songs about fishing, marrying, living and dying on the sandy banks of a once-remote NC island.

Written, recorded and engineered by Mark Fielding Darden, most of the songs were actually performed by the outstanding singers and musicians of Salter Path and surrounding towns. Don't miss this one. It's great.

These are original pop rock tunes written, recorded, and engineered by Marco Cholo, and performed by Marco and his pals. Chris Kisgen contributed a huge amount over the year it took to write and record these songs, with outstanding ideas, guitar sounds, leads, bass, and some vocals. Milton Gore also contributed on several of the songs, playing some great leads and a few bass parts.

As you listen to these songs, you will hear years of influence by great artists such as Clapton, The Band, Dylan, Stones, Beatles, Tom Petty and more. Marco has always been driven to write interesting song lyrics, supported by memorable melodies, lead parts, vocals and harmonies. You won't be disappointed with this unique collection of original, somewhat historical songs. Thanks in advance for your purchase!!

This is an album I put out in early 2000 that surprises me every time I listen to it. I think it will affect you in the same way. God is not a game, and his Son was a hero. Classy little group of songs. Lots of heart here...

The drawing is of a two bedroom home I want to someday build in the mountains of Panama to live in about nine months each year. Our land and "setting" are almost identical to the drawing.

Only half-way finished in the recording process, but I have gotten requests to put it up for sale as it is (and I will supply the rest of the songs later for free). This is a work of heart aimed at scratching that old, persistent "itch" known as Panama... the place I was born and will return. Hope all my old Zonian friends enjoy this...

These songs were written during the years when life falls apart, promises are broken, and love flies away. You will identify with them easily because we have all fallen victim to romantic disasters, have we not?

I'd like to thank Chris Kisgen for a ton of help and inspiration as we recorded these tunes. My old friend, Milton Gore, contributed as well. And there were many others who kept me on track during all of this. Bill McDonald, David Gourley, and my kids Zachary and Matti. Thanks to all. Hope you get something out of these tunes.

A great little moment in time... a live radio show of me with friends, playing and singing songs from the Salter Path album (Will This Town Survive?). Frank Stacio of 'Backporch Music' invited us on his show and produced the event. Pretty cool. There is one song here that is not recorded anywhere else, called 'Last Man Left In Town'.

Four 45 RPM records I made in the 70's. They are rough shots aimed in the dark. We had to go "out of town" to record them, so we only had one chance to nail them. Some are quite good and others could have used more time in the studio. Nevertheless, they are historically very interesting and worth having.
