Album Credits

Moving closer to Buddhist nirvana, our zen dudes show that maturity = love.

LEVEL 1 told the story of Coyote's move to Utah where he was ostracized for being a long haired, rock'n'roll Buddhist, Catholic, from California.

LEVEL 2 displayed Coyote's evolution into his musical world of tambourines and flutes. The Mormons were still chasing him. However, rather than reacting to his persecutors, he sings songs that show his spiritual enlightenment of seeing through his opponent's eyes.

LEVEL 3 was recorded after Coyote returned from Utah. This album commemorates getting back to California, searching for love, finding love, losing love, and just being lusty. The spiritual evolution here appears to be Coyote and the boys finding a balance between their beliefs and the expectations of other religions. Harmony?
