started out in the fall of 1997 as a demo. The band tracked all
the drums in one day in their friends' (the Smiley's) barn loft.
The recording set-up had cables running across the back yard,
with Tyler Brown manning the sound board in a small room
by the Smiley's back door. The rest was recorded in Tony Moore's
basement studio and in various rooms at Tony's flavor company.
Just another day in the life of a struggling band. GS decided
to further flesh out the tracks and proceeded to make the group's
first LP. Josiah Wolf played drums and Mike Helm
graciously covered bass on all but track 3. Peter Throm
joined Gwendolyn Speaks on bass as a full-time member near the
end of the recording and was able to track one song. Tyler Brown
engineered the project and Scott took a shot at producing. This
Time was released in late 1998 to rave reviews throughout
the midwest region, including being hailed as one of Cincinnati
Top 25 releases for '98 by Citybeat magazine. The band
was also voted one of the Midwest's "Killer Bands"
on the merits of this recording.

Tara and Scott were calling themselves Common Ground,
playing around regionally as an acoustic duet. Occasionally they
performed with Steve Davis, a friend of Over
The Rhine (and now Monk)
guitarist Ric Hordinski. Steve introduced the pair to
Ric, who had just started producing artists from his home studio,
Mersey Beat. Scott and Tara decided to work with Ric and
put down four songs with full band orchestration (since this
is how they hoped to eventually perform the music). All the tracks
were recorded by Scott, Tara and Ric in his living room as his
pets looked on. The EP was released in October 1996.
THIS TIME T-SHIRT
L's and XL's are all that are left. It's
a white t-shirt with "Gwendolyn Speaks - This Time"
and the watch from the front cover of the CD in purple. The back
of the t-shirt is blank.
