Chicago chanteuse Edith Frost quickly follows up her exceptional full-length debut, Calling Over Time, with three more songs of equal quality. Like those on Frost’s debut EP, these new songs are more sparse than those of Calling Over Time, which features a cast of backing musicians. The only other musician heard on these three songs is Kramer (who produced them), who adds a touch of bass and synthesizer to the eerie, hollow sounds of "Ancestors." "Secrets" and "Cold And On My Mind" are the sort of back porch ditties we’ve come to expect from Frost: simple acoustic guitar-based songs with a touch of blues and a twist of country.

A 3-song single released in the U.K. in the summer of 1997. (I’m not sure of the exact date.) The single is now out of print, though two of the songs were later re-released on the Shanti Project 2 benefit compilation. Chuck Cors did an amazing video for the title song, if you want to check that out.
