Album Notes
Freebore was a three-piece family pop/rock band headed by singer, songwriter and guitarist Stephen Lewis Swan who was
murdered in 2008. Steve completed the recording of this, his fifth album, in 2006 and the final mixing and mastering
in 2007.

Many of Steve's songs were inspired by real-life dilemmas and the difficulties of friends. As a trusted and loved
confidant, Steve could advise, sympathize and tease simultaneously: "That's What I Told You Before." "Dark
House" was inspired by the neighborhood where Steve lived in 2006. From the down-and-out scenario of "I Met A Beggar"
to the love-lost theme of "Nikki," the ecstasy of "Do You Want To Hear It Again?" and the sentiment of family in "All
The Footprints," this album exhibits a full range of emotions.

True to a trend popular in the sixties, this album was designed as a unit. Steve mastered the album in such a way that some songs blend together in transition and as a result, if listened to individually, some songs will have abrupt starts and endings.

Although Freebore played live as a three-piece band, for the studio recordings Steve performed all instrumental and vocal tracks, with Mike Swan on drums. All recording, mixing and mastering was done by Steve in his own home studio.

The original title for this album was intended to be "Project Cosmic Boogie Buiscuit," but while the album was being recorded and mixed drummer Mike Swan was in the market for a used car. His shopping experiences prompted
the change in the title of the album.

Before Steve died, he completed recording nearly all the tracks for a sixth album. Work is in progress to complete
this album as well.
