Video projects:
   
There  is a surf video that Robert Vaughn and band did the music for around  1989 called "Psychedelic Surf Collage" that was sold around the San  Diego area (and has popped up as far as Japan). On this can be found  early versions of songs like you could be mine and el gato plus long instrumental jams.
The Riverhouse Songs & Stories video  album, 1991, was never finished but copies of various edits of the film  have surfaced among collectors. There is also a 15 minute video that  predates this, compiled for labels, that shows some early cuts of some  of the videos and alternate comic bits.
There  was a Gloryhouse video, about a half hour, that aired on local  television, of the band playing live. Robert also filmed the Love & War sessions  and at one point we'd considered releasing that. The Dead River Angels  also performed live on the San Diego Music awards(another video piece I  don't have) and in the O zone category, Robert profiled on ABC's In  Concert with live footage from the House of Blues.
 
Unreleased songs, Gloryhouse era: Lots, but includes: better country, winds of war, waiting for the coming, all fall down, i keep singing, coming home, mercy road, angelic city.
Unreleased songs, Riverhouse era: Where do I start? Here's a partial list: golden  slippers(rock version), blues for an angel, rat on a wheel, where love  catches fire, meet me down by the riverbed, marilyn monroe don't live  here no more, days of promise, & 1968.
Unreleased songs, post Riverhouse era: crown  of thorns, third stone from the sun, bag of black pearls, the ghost of  betrayal and lies, ruby larue, nothing comes close to you, white trash  working man blues, christmas must be tonight, and many more.
There are many alternate mixes and versions of several tracks...dreams used to be longer(!) and so did baby why'd you leave me alone.
A  studio fire some years ago destoyed many masters of Robert's. He has  literally hundred of cassettes of other song ideas and sketches, and I'd  say without hesitation he's one of the more prolific writers on the  planet.
