Coyote Streetheart

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 is Coyote's enlarged love beyond his family and appreciation of all world religions. Richard Del Connor, The Hippy Coyote is also, Buddha Zhen, who decides he is more than the founder and Patriarch of his Zen Buddhist religion, shaolinZEN.org, and creates his spiritual title of, BUDDHIST SCIENTIST.

LEVEL 4 was recorded in two locations: Crescenta Valley Park "CV Park," and Coyote's Montrose apartment with such thin walls you can hear the neighbors snoring at night. With only a few hours during the day, and only a few days a week, Coyote had difficulty squeezing in recording sessions for the vocals, guitars, percussion, and flutes. CV Park was used to record all the drum tracks on the LEVEL 4 Part 1 and Part 2 albums.

The song, "King Solomon's Temple Penny Whistle," and several other Masonic themed songs, were already on the album before record producer, Richard Connor, decided to change the album title. This new ROCK OPERA concept for the LEVEL 4 = Kung Fu Cowboy PART 1 album, enabled Richard to mix the album while envisioning the movie/rock opera/storyline of Solomon's Temple. During the song, "King Solomon's Temple Penny Whistle," the characters of the rock opera are positioned and move about in the musical Temple as Richard panned the vocals from one side to the other. The "burps" are from King Tyre, who presided over the Temple construction with King Solomon.

In the song, "Hiram Abif," the characters are defined and positioned for the murder that will take place in, "Kill The Spider." where King Solomon will also have his revenge during the song.
