Tickets is a cool little EP put out by the band probably as a way to fulfill their contract with REX records. It's got some remixes of older tunes and quite a few new ones. I'm pretty sure that "Healer" and "Dresses" were songs that were recorded during the Beautiful Mess sessions. To be honest I think those songs should have been on that album to lighten it up a little. They're great songs. "Carry You" is a Leslie Phillips cover. I want to say that "Love Letters in the Sand" is a cover too but I don't know of whom. "Alisha's First Step" and "Solomon the Mystic" are both instrumentals. All in all it was definitely worth the $7 or so it cost me at the time.

Useless Fact: Though not part of the band Tess Wiley is credited as playing on a few songs. Also, as mentioned before, this was the last disc the band put out on REX.
