ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This first album of Ggreg (sic) Snyder, a would-be pariah who has been writing songs since at least the early 1980's, pioneers a style that blends outlaw country and musical theatre, a fusion that no one really asked for. The collection is a musical journey between the straight-forward country of "Earnest" and "Physics & Magic," the straight-ahead blues of "Run Away" and "Nocturnal Remission," and the anything-but-straight bluegrass comedy song "Gay Men." The VFT project features a variety of guest stars, a veritable "Who's Who" of "Who's That?" First and foremost is maverick folk icon Ed Haynes, who duets with Ggreg on "Boise Girl" and lends his guitar skills to "Gay Men" (along with an uncredited [or unblamed?] lyrical interlude.) They include double-slide legend Will Ray (The Hellecasters) on guitar, Bob Glaub (Jackson Browne, John Lennon, John Fogerty, everyone else) on bass, Steve Duncan (Desert Rose Band) on drums, Lee Thornburg (Tower Of Power, Supertramp, Tonight Show) on cornet, John "Juke" Logan (Poco, Dave Alvin, Ry Cooder) on harmonica, and many others. On many songs, Ggreg explores his goal of being humanist and politically correct, while at the same time being profane and offensive. He often likes to describe his music in terms of being a cross between two artists. For this collection, he chooses to proclaim that he is occupying the netherworld between Kris Kristofferson and Tom Lehrer.
