Album Notes
OK, so it’s been about seven years. I warned you all that I was not prolific, and I know that time has not made me any quicker. But there was opportunity and incentive here, so…

Behold, my third album!

First, and foremost, let us realize this is a live album with all the resident and accompanying warts, miscues, and less than ideal acoustics. That is to say--this is not a studio quality album. Kristoph did a marvelous job as sound person, so things sound better than I had any right to expect for a live album, but, let’s be honest--we weren’t in a studio. I've done the best I can with the music software I have (recently purchased, so this is actually the beginning of the learning curve...) and that's the way it is. Thanks to Curt for lending his ears and expertise. Jeff, I still suffer studio envy…

Second, the basis of this album is from two recordings. The first is the audio from the DVD filmed by Harold Groot during the performance. The second is a mic recording of that same concert, probably from Kathleen Sloan, who is one of the folk from Interfilk (along with Brenda Sutton) involved in getting me out to Consonance in the first place. Brenda, Kathleen, Harold--thank you for giving me the opportunity to even make this album. It made an otherwise thoroughly enjoyable experience that much more so.

Third, Consonance was great and the folks there are wondrously friendly, accommodating, and resourceful. For example, the accordion I'm using is not mine, but one acquired by Dr. Jim (not the Toastmaster, FYI) just for this occasion. So, many kudos and gratuities to all at Consonance. You are wonderful people, and my wife and I had a marvelous time. (Thanks to Kathy Mar for hosting and tour guide duties!)

Song lyrics, occasional snippets, and the even more occasional appearance listings are available on my website, Thanks for purchasing! Oh, and 'Accordion Man' music is originally Billy Joel 'Piano Man', 'Only the Red Shirts' music is originally Billy Joel 'Only the Good Die Young', 'A Whiter Shade of Pale' music is originally Procol Harum 'Whiter Shade of Pale', and 'That Tribble Episode' music is originally Sting 'Fields of Gold'.

As always, anything played (that is, guitars, bass, keyboards, accordion), programmed (drums), or sung on this CD was done by me, including the backing tracks. This allows the blame to be localized, and provides a better focus for those who troll or cast with slings of outrage.
