Subject: CRD: Helium by Mark Eitzel


Mark Eitzel, "Helium"
by: Peter Mosinskis
date: Oct. 24, 1997

This transcription is from the album _West_ on Warner Bros., released early
1997.
Peter Buck of R.E.M. plays great acoustic guitar on this song and
throughout this beautiful, haunting album. This is Track 3, my favorite song.
