You can find the lyrics of some of these songs and informations at lonelyastronauts.com

Some songs are missing :

"Outside Your Window" is a very rare song that appears to be exclusive to the Songs For the New Album CD. This song has yet to find its way onto traders lists and is therefore practically unavailable.

"People Were Dying" was performed at Hoboken on 15 July 2004. No recording known to exist.

"Midnight Dirt" is a song mentionned by JA on a 2008 video interview for mog.com. He played a little bit of it and showed the lyrics but there's still no known recording.

"Popcorn" is a spoken song that Joseph made up and played live for the first time at the Stronghold, Venice, CA on 2 April 2010.

"Walking In Kosovo" is a song played live with Kraig Jarret Johnson, Scott McCaughey (keys) & Linda Pitmon in Mexico on January 2013.

"I Won't Call" is a unreleased song from the 2nd RNDM Record. Richard Stuverud was hoping it would have been included on the release. "Someday the light will shine on it."

"Rock Love" is a song created the day of the Woodstock Session (2016-07-30).

"Gaslitkid", "Pigeons", "Stop", "Miracle Ride" and "Shake It Off" are songs created with Paul Cantelon on July 2017 for the Project Torture Chamber VJJ. Some snippets of these songs were posted on the JA's Instagram.

On 27 August 2018, Joseph posted on Instagram a picture of the tracklist for a new record called "Fantasy Road". Some snippets were posted on Instagram since July 2018.

"Where Did You Go?", "Fall In Love With Me" & "Don't Try to Understand It" are some of the (six?) songs written by Arthur Buck during rehearsals in May 2018 for the Arthur Buck US Tour.

"Dreamcatcher" was played during a podcast recording for FilmWax Radio, on 2018-12-22.

2019-07-16 - Remembering Leon Russell, City Winery, NYC

On Stage :

Featuring Rich Pagano as Musical Director with Marshall Crenshaw, Joseph Arthur, Scott Sharrard, Emily Duff, Laith Al-Saadi, Tash Neil, Ricky Byrd, Early Elton Trio, Brian Mitchell, Nicki Richards, Jeff Kazee, Jim Boggia, Fred Walcott, John Conte and The Asbury Jukes Horns.

A portion of proceeds will benefit to Recovery Release (sober house living for men) and New Hope Rising (sober house living for women).

Sober house living is the second stage or 'next step' of treatment after an intensive 30-40 day in-patient addiction program. The goal is to integrate recovering men and women back into their everyday life. Most families find the means to pay for initial in-patient treatment but the majority cannot afford or their insurance will not cover a sober house living level, subjecting their loved ones to old triggers long before coping skills are in place. Recovery Release for men in Westchester and New Hope Rising for woman on Long Island are two virtuous entities that are dedicated to the proven steps for maintaining sobriety in an era of a drug addiction epidemic.

Review By Jamie Kalikow

The Remembering Leon Russell benefit event at City Winery NYC – was packed with stellar players and great songs.

The huge cast of musicians and vocalists, led by Musical Director, Rich Pagano, included Marshall Crenshaw, Joseph Arthur, Scott Sharrard, Emily Duff, Laith Al-Saadi, Brian Mitchell, Ricky Byrd, Jeff Kazee, John Conte, Fred Walcott, Leslie Mendelson, Jim Boggia, Nicki Richards, Rich Pagano, Leslie Mendelson, Natalie Mishell and Southside Johnny Horns.

This was one of the few iconic Artist Tributes where the evenings guest artists didn’t feel they needed to chase the recordings. The night was filled with interpretations which is Rich Pagano’s preference when working with artists as a musical director.

A generous portion of proceeds to benefit “Release Recovery” – A Sober House for Men and & “New Hope Rising – A Sober House for Women.
This show was the first of what hopes to be an annual talent-packed benefit event.
