Album Notes
My music was formed by the folksingers of the 60's, primarily Phil Ochs and Tom Paxton. Others who influenced me were Woody and Arlo Guthrie, Patrick Sky, John Prine, and Dick Feller. After a family-raising hiatus of several decades, I returned to writing in time to witness the corporate assault on labor that, I believe, is the greatest threat to social and economic justice.

Much, if not all, of this album is in response to the onslaught of right-wing attacks on human and civil rights, unions, and democracy itself. Some have faces, such as ("The Ballad of) Mark Janus" and ("Eff The) Freedom Foundation!"

The good news is that we have survived and progressed throughout times of oppression and struggle. "We Marched Down This Road Before"...labor, women's suffrage, civil rights, farmworkers, Vietnam...etc. We have organized and fought...usually a few at first and then snowballing into full-blown social movements that changed history...and bettered our lives.

"Now that we've decided not to take it anymore...we're marching down this road once more."
