Turn the Page: Background
“Turn the Page” shares with “Time Stand Still” a focus on the now-moment, the idea of savoring the moment for what it is while acknowledging the transience of time. “Just as in Buddhism, the beginning of enlightenment is to realize the truth of flux and impermanence. Don’t continue to seek the permanent where it cannot be found.”—Carol Selby Price and Robert Price, Mystic Rhythms
“I had a major problem with playing ‘Turn the Page’ live on tour. It’s a very busy bass part, and the vocal part doesn’t really relate to it very much. Eventually I got it, but it took a lot of practice. You can do these things, but you have to practice them a lot. You have to split yourself, as they say. Split your hands, Split yourself in two really, and let you hands do something, and let your voice do the other.” (Bass Player, 1988)—Geddy in Merely Players
