ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chris Chandler is a veteran of the road. As a wandering poet and musician, he has been Traveling the thin Highways of fat America. Few performers can lay claim to on the roadisms the way Chandler can. Over the past seven years he has blazed a trail from Edmonton to Guadalajara, Halifax to Baha. Over a million miles in seven years - three vehicles - two Volkswagens and a Chevrolet. He has lived in a car and performed on the very streets that wrap around his universal joint.

In addition to his wandering, ramblings, and writings, he has shared the stage with vanguard writers and performers such as Pete Seeger, Tom Paxton, Allen Ginsberg, Peter Yarrow, Ramblin' Jack Elliot, Ferron, Leo Kottke, T. Bone Burnett, Michael Smith and Earl Robinson. Also he has shared the stage with more contemporary acts such as Ani Difranco, Mojo Nixon, Vic Chestnut, Trout Fishing in America, Dan Bern, Jim Infantino, Don White, Ellis Paul, Pierce Pettis, David Wilcox, and Roger Manning.

"This is not your father's folk music... insightful... humorous... you just have to hear it."
-- Neil Fagen Performing Songwriter

In January 2001, Chandler teamed up with longtime friend and personal hero Anne Feeney. Based in Pittsburgh, PA, Feeney is the granddaughter of an intrepid mineworkers' organizer, who also used music to carry the message of solidarity to working people. After two decades of community activism and regional performances at rallies, Anne took her message on the road. Since 1991 Anne has traveled to the frontlines in 40 states, Canada, Mexico, Ireland and Sweden.

Her anthem "Have You Been to Jail for Justice?" is being performed by Peter, Paul and Mary. Dubbed the "minister of culture" to the movements for economic and social justice and human rights, Anne is "the best labor singer in North America" according to Utah Phillips.

Their acclaimed 2002 release "Flying Poetry Circus" includes seven folken word selections totalling 40+ minutes. Their 2003 release "Live from the Wholly Stolen Empire" contains 11 cuts recorded at concerts from Pensacola FL to Victoria, British Columbia - from Ben Lomond, CA to Philadelphia, PA.

This recording is soon to become a collectors' item... The few copies here at CDBaby are about the last available!

Really nice work
Someone else said, "the juxtapositions are simply brilliant." I agree completely. This is witty, poignant, cool to listen to, really special. And, despite being made in 2001, it's not dated. Like Anne's War on the Workers or Have You Been to Jail for Justice, these tracks touch timeless ideas. You will feel inspired with a sense of understanding.

5 stars doesn't cut it! The juxtapositions are simply brilliant. What a team!! I love the humour, with its cutting edge. Prozac especially had me howling!
