Interstates (1986) is a collection of nine songs written by New England singer-songwriter & acoustic blues guitarist, Geoff Bartley. Reissued on CD in 1998, this is Geoff's second album. 'New England Towns' is a darkly humorous look at junked cars, stray cats, and sleepy villages being pulled reluctantly into the twenty-first century. 'Sanderlings' is a spoken word piece about migration & human will. 'Mediocrities' is a wacky, blues-drenched reiteration of street-level ethics, and 'July' remembers the joys of boyhood and deep summer nights. 'Interstates' recalls the lost Franklin Expedition and tells of life on the road, and 'Ever Green' is a love song, pure & simple. 'Right to Ecstasy' and 'Death is the Robber' address the human longing for transcendence & offer the perennial blossoming of hope.
