The Legend of a Bayou Boy, Vol. 1: Swamp Thing

by Bayou Boy Orchestra

Swamp Thing — The Legend Of A Bayou Boy –Vol. 1 is an album of songs written by south of Boston musician-singer-songwriter Greedy Geezer. Greedy Geezer is the fellow who hosted a monthly Friday night jam of Americana musicians at Quincy’s Granite Rail Tavern. This album, recorded with musicians from those Friday night extravaganzas, reflect the Geezer’s interest in Americana roots music and early rock and roll. There’s plenty of guitar, bass, keyboards, and drums to keep this CD rocking. There are also plenty of banjo, accordion, and washboard to flavor it up in earthy idioms and rustic vibes. And it’s a whole heap of fun and a pile of energy.Greedy Geezer, producer Yukiko Fujii, and the others participating in this recording have outdone themselves. This recording is a fine document of the ensemble of players who used to meet up at the monthly Friday night Greedy Geezer’s Garage Night at the Granite Rail Tavern in Quincy, Massachusetts (Bill Copeland Music News Review)

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
To Whom It May Concern: About ten years ago, something strange happened to my father. He started staying out late, playing his guitar at all hours, and asking people to call him Geezer. “The Geezer”, had one sole purpose in life: Geezers Garage Night. A gathering of local musicians at the Granite Rail Tavern in Quincy, MA. The band started off with, my little brother (Bayou Boy), Uncle Joe, Geezer, and myself Lonesome Lil. But our members continued to grow the longer we were a part of the local music scene we created. We became acquainted with so many talented musicians who are too numerous to mention, although some of our closest friends include The Tokyo Tramps, Preacher Jack, Joey Fingers , Al Hendry, and the Quincy Rock Preservation Society. The BBO has recorded 18 songs, this album contains the first nine. These are songs for summer Friday nights, for pizza and beer Taverns and campfires. – Swamp Thing ~ the Legend of A Bayou Boy Vol.1~. All the Best, Lonesome Lil
