What Golden Years?

by Allan "Dr Eclectic' Markin

An original post-academic blues romp with a country/folk flavor, this album is a "raw & real" exploration of themes related to folks who live on the margins of our society, or those for whom love is a "psychic overload."

Album Notes
I am a reinvented academic who writes and sings in a style I fondly call "post academic blues." which can be described as blues with a country/folk flavor, with some rock and roll thrown in. So I call myself "Dr Eclectic" in order to capture my diverse musical interests. Although I do not deliberately set out to express specific themes in my songs, I do lean towards exploring theme related to folks who are living on the margins of our society for social and economic reasons. As an "old guy having fun" I do have a particular interest is trying to figure out what the expression "golden years" really means. My experience tells me that it's a misnomer for what really happens to most old people.

Some of my songs have humorous touches that come from the expression "he who laughs, lasts."

I love performing live, both as a solo artist and with a band. Back in the 1950's and 1960's I spent many years playing rock and roll with a band called The Invaders. Boy, those sure were the days. Now, after some forty years, I'm back at it! Retirement...what's that?
