Album Notes
The Big Escape album was developed simply on the acoustic guitar from songs written by Warren “Big Papa” Harman over several years. Slowly the songs became more as parts were added in the studio. As an avid fan of Jimmy Buffett and other Trop Rock music, Warren wished to put together a collection of original works with an eye toward the Key West sunset. Big Escape is the result. I know you will like it!

If you have ever thought about escaping your life and heading out on permanent vacation, this is the record for you.

1. I've Heard This Song Before – Inspired after a trip to Atlantic City in a hurricane;
2. Down Island Baggage Claim – Think about the loads we bear... and cut it loose!
3. Just Another Wannabe – Fun Escape Song. “Don is chillin’ poolside, Trop Rock streamin’ BONAFIDE!”
4. Pretty Margaritas – Any bartender will agree, you won’t believe what you overhear in a bar.
5. What I Am – Had a job interview once, they wanted to know who I really was… Where's my guitar?
6. Give Me A Whirl – Come on, let’s dance!
7. Help Me Forget – So many memory songs, but what if you didn't want to remember?
8. Hard Working Woman – Another tough woman makes good from a bad situation.
9. Kick It – Cancer, addictions, bad habits - Everyone has something they would like to kick.
10. Song Of The Sea – Dedicated to HOSPICE and my Father-in-law Emil. Love yah Dad!
11. Banana, Coconut, Pineapple (Bonus Track) – I feel like a kid in the studio (Deep sigh)!

I especially want to thank "Scotty Rocker" Patnode for making the sounds in my head dance around the studio. His magic ears and sense of humor made this year long project a beautiful experience.

I also want to thank my fabulous family for putting up with all the musical gear in our tight living spaces and missing Papa during recording and performing. Chris and Jess, you are my inspiration and motivation. I thank you for all your support and love.
