ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Green Man Said features twenty-eight musicians and has taken a number of years to complete. After initial home demos and preliminary recordings in back of a gallery in Miami's Design District with Steve Watt (Snatch the Pebble), the album was actually in production at Ridenour Studios in Fort Lauderdale for two years, starting in October 2003. Finishing touches were added at Miami Beach Recording Studios, where the album was later mixed by Looch. Mastering was performed over Christmas 2005 by Toby Mountain at Northeastern Digital of Southborough, Massachusetts, which had done a sterling job on my friend Mark Kane's 2004 album Fool's Dark Evening, not to mention having mastered the original appearance of Bill Morrissey's spooky "Robert Johnson" on his 1992 album Inside. Rich Good at TheXperiment.com designed the packaging, which includes a really beautiful 16 page booklet.
The evolution of the album has been organic --its title song was not written until October 2004, for the birth of Theo Semper, for example-- but the aim has always been to present the songs in the settings they required, without regard for consistency of genre, marketability, live practicality or any dubious "authenticity," in the belief that some kind of coherence would reveal itself as the project progressed. I'm proud to call the players on Green Man Said friends of mine, as they're all wonderful people and their musical abilities are extraordinary. I hope you'll take the tour at www.adepeever.com and find out more about how Green Man Said came about, and then go ahead and check out the players' pages, and pick up their albums too. This one has taken a long time because I wanted to get it right. I hope you like it. - ade peever

Terrific folk-rock offering!
Ade Peever and friends have compiled a brilliant offering in the finest folk-rock tradition. From the poignant "World Gets in the Way" to the sea chanty-inspired "Skeleton Crew" and the deeply personal "Seven Seas Behind", Ade's music composition and performance skills shine. Definitely a CD to add to your collection!

A wonderful album!
I first met Ade in 1981, during my time in Cheshire. He was then regularly performing at the Sandbach Folkclub. The last time I heard him was in 1985. He had a gig in a Pub, together with John Stoker.
And now, 25 years later, I discovered that he had made an album – “Green Man Said”. I ordered it and was very curious and excited when it finally arrived
What would it be like? Would I still like his music?
To cut a long story short: Yes, I like it very much. There actually is not one song on this album I don’t like. And this is not just nostalgic jabbering … like: He is an old friend and I just can’t say anything critical …
No, I have got this CD for several weeks already – and I listen to it frequently. Do I have a favourite song? One day it’ll be “World gets in the Way” – and another day it’ll be “Night on Earth” or “Out Tonight”. I could go on like this. So I better stop – and recommend: Buy this album!

Fun, haunting tunes; poignant lyrics to listen to.
A wonderful CD. Fun to listen to the music; Ade has put together a great group of musicians. The lyrics are worth listening to and help your thoughts wander. "World Gets in the Way" is a lesson for love and life. "Night on Earth" is full of rich imagery. Well worth it. A joy each time I hear it.

Brilliant
Delivered at speed by cd baby !! this cd IS awesome, there is not a bad track on it. The backing is everything you could ask for from a Folk Rock band, great lyrics beautifully played. Whilst the reference points are Richard Thompson and a touch of Levellers this work is pure Ade Peever, Buy it for all your friends... they will thank you!!!!!
