Written by Dan Haley while attending Mount Hood Community College in 1978 and originally titled "Smoke Signals" ( "Smoke" was a nickname for himself that he unsuccessfully tried to get other students to use), this tune was neglected for years until Peter Boesen ( keyboard player and fellow MHCC alumnus) reminded Haley of the song and the chords in 2004. The song was then renamed Boesen Tide which later became the name for the Haley/Boesen duo.

This version was recorded, (02/18/15) on Haley's computer using Cubase software at the home of Wynter Byrnes (many thanks) where there is an 8' Feurich grand piano which Peter played while Dan played his Taylor acoustic guitar.
