The Pauper- The Pauper song mp3 1977
This is when Coyote was inspired to play flute.
Waking up from a dream that seemed to be a past life, Coyote, then known as Richard Del Connor or "Dickie Dare," wrote the short story, that became the rock opera, THE PAUPER.
Coyote envisioned himself as a wandering minstrel from Ireland, in England, over 400 years ago, playing a small Spanish guitar.
Accidentally sucked into a witch's sacrifice, he is transported into another world that he takes advantage of...and pays the ultimate price.
The flute that Coyote purchased in 1976 to perform this rock opera, is the same flute he plays and records with today in 2010.
The entire rock opera was not recorded, but a dozen songs were recorded in 4-track and 16-track studios in 1976-1978.
Some of these songs will be available here, soon.
