" Vahevala, " written by Kenny Loggins and Dan Lottermoser, first appeared on Sittin' In, the debut album by singer-songwriters, Kenny Loggins and Jim Messina, released in 1971 on the Columbia label. It was later included on the greatest hits album, The Best of Friends, released in 1976 and was also performed on the reunion album, Live: Sittin' in Again at Santa Barbara Bowl released in 2005 on the Rhino label. With regard to the song Kenny Loggins said, "As far as writing the lyric, people ask me, What is Vahevala? It was just a sound that came through, Loggins continues. It caught my attention because it sounded like a place, so I made it up like a fantasy island that this kid came from, where he would sneak off the boat and party with the neighbors and sneak back on before the captain saw him. It was total escapist fantasy. What is most remarkable to me, when I look back on it, is how much joy is in it. It's such an I love my life song." This sound recording is administered by SME.
