ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Doug finally found his tough songwriting 'edge' with 'Drive Anywhere', a straight-ahead Rock track with Don Henley style Consumerist cynicism. "You drive your Hummer down the Street for a paper. You like the metal 'cause it makes you feel safer." So began his songwriting avalanche resulting in 14 new tunes, the creation of 'Doug Barr & the Blast' and 'Too Far From the Water'. Ever critical of the Richest 1%, Doug's track 'US' reminds that 'There's less of YOU and more of US'. 'O Father' brings us to our knees in the Confessional seeking absolution for our sins just so, we can 'do them all again'. Some of us have seen it all before - 'matching down the boulevards, with megaphones and bodyguards' - as we wonder whatever happened to all those '60's protests that were going to change the world? 'Live Too Long/Seen Too Much' confesses a world-weariness but denies surrender. This is a packed 14 song 'thinking' album with carefully measured lyrics meant to cast the spotlight to where it belongs. "Bless my Bills. Raise the Rent. Might be better off livin' in a Tent."
