The 2002 release of the Rise and shine CD was the official coming out party for Transcendence, being the first Ed Hale related album since 2000’s Acoustic in New York . The video footage of the CD release party was thought to be lost. In fact, the video tapes are still missing, which is too bad, because it was a grand affair. But an 8 minute Rise and shine CD release party video montage that was created in the summer of 2002 by Capsule Media was just recently discovered. It features original band members Stro on bass and Jon Rose on keyboards and a very nervous Ed singing the songs Mother and Tres cool from the rise and shine CD, and also Minnie Driver and Keep moving on from the group’s next CD Sleep with you. The video closes with the band performing Better luck next time at an undisclosed venue.
