ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Harry Hayward has been doing what he has been doing for a long long time. He was once permanately banned from Miami Beach for performing Dog Humpie on stage with the bands equiptment manager, Moonman. His material ranges from spoken word such as The Therapist, The Capn's On his Way and Harry You A Butthead, to the jazzy "My Last Drunk (so far...)", a foot tapping "Animal Hoedown" featuring clarinet, Tuba and dildo, and the" French" Allons Poo-Poo. Other tunes range from the countryish " It Took 4 Beatles to Make 1 Elvis", " A Girl Named Johnny Cash" and that memorable favorite "Hunk O'Nookie". Harry is a ventriloquist who has an 80 year old dummy who "works with wood" in public. This cd was reviewed in MOJO magazine. harry thinks it was a good revue but can't really remember. Though he does not understand how, one of his songs "I'll Never Be Happy Again" was used on the TV show "The Shield". The 15 second cameo has netted him some $300 over the last 3 year period. "and that my friends is true success". Love & good Karma

Where ya been, Harry?
This extraordinary recording, published in 2000, appears to be the first and only CD available showcasing the work of this unique artist, Two questions leap to mind: Where were you before this, Harry? and where have you been since?

Hayward mixes, in almost equal proportions, original tunes that swing through a wide variety of familiar styles with hilarious and sometimes disturbing character monologues. The songwriting is pure Americana, ranging from the opening “Animal Hoedown”, a bawdy parody of a folksy child's song, to the danceable, Floribean-pseudo-tropical “The Mullet” concerning the finer points of catching the titular fish, through several takes, some darker than others, on marriage and other relationships, to the final, hallucinatory Tex-Mex tune “My Last Drunk (so far...)”.

As for the monologues, the nearest comparison for me, strange as it might seem, is with the work of Richard Pryor. Hayward is a native Floridian who almost perfectly captures the diction, world view and character of his fellow Florida “crackers”, those white, predominantly poor, country folk now displaced into the urban environment of their burgeoning and already over-developed home state. He brings the same finely-tuned ear and mimetic skills to these characters that Prior brings his fellow poor, urban black folks.

Hayward's voice, with its strains, stretches and cracks, is ultimately endearing. The general musicianship is high. The sessions have a loose, relaxed and informal feel, sounding like a bunch of friends getting together and having a fine old time of it.

I would recommend this CD. It amuses. It has lots of catchy melodies and good performances. At times it shocks and should carry a PG rating. Hayward is a rare talent. From the photos accompanying the disk, he looks to be in his silver years. Given that fact, and the hope that there is more where this came from, I am compelled to say to him: “More! Make hay while the sun shines, Harry!”
