One Song, Two Takes, Years Apart.
Recordings Yaya River (on the Yaya river album through Thank for the Postcard, 2011) and the recording of River on the archive album draw similarities too big not to mention. River was written and recorded by Tim Schmidt and was released digitally on the Everything That Happened album (2019). It is a version of a tune named Yaya River 2011.
YaYa River was released on the YaYa River album 2011 by Nicolas Huart on the Thanks for the Postcard label in Leipzig.
The drawing on the yaya river cover image was made by Swedish artist Jeff Olsson.
The lyrics are to River are easy:
See how the river runs
wild in the lone wolf
see how he's floating past now
on driftwood from the childhood
put yer eyes on the road now boy
put yer eyes on the road my friend
The Thanks for the Postcard CD is unfortunately Sold Out.
But find Yaya River & River on streaming platforms and YouTube.
