ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dave Shapiro was born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, just down the road from the atom smasher. Some people think the effects of neonatal radiation can show up many years later, but Dave\'s debut CD, Love & Gasoline, is proof that a few loose gamma rays can produce wonders, especially, when fused with his childhood memories of Hank Williams, the Everly Brothers, Merle Travis and Johnny Cash.

Now, with the release of his self-produced CD, Love & Gasoline, Dave has returned to his roots with an album featuring his wry and poignant songwriting, and some of NYC\'s best musicians (and friends) including Kenny Kosek, Barry Mitterhoff, Mike Levine, Pete Vitalone, Sam McPherson, Jim Kendrick, Nicole Paradiso and Eric Troyer.

Oh, and by the way, Dave co-wrote and produced the iconic jazz-tinged theme music for the Charlie Rose show, heard every weeknight on PBS.

If you're a fan of alt-country, you won't find a better bunch of tunes. These are the kind of songs
you can't get out of your head(trust me I've tried). Check out "Wait" and "Only When I Breathe" for starters. And yes the version of "Get Down Tonight"(yes that Get Down Tonight)actually works.

Love the original music and insightful lyrics, especially "Like you care" and "only when I breathe." The covers are great too -- unexpected and endearing renditions of - "Get Down Tonight" and "I hate myself for loving you"

Great traveling music
We love listening to this cd, especially in the car! Wonderful cover of the Ramones, I wanna be sedated, but all the tunes are good and the musicians are everything you'd wish for. Thanks Dave.

Awesome! Already a part of my top ten most played CDs! Shapiro's soulful voice evoke's the tones of Lou Reed with the pathos of John Prine while still being completely his own.
