The Chymical Vegas Wedding

by Joe Cassady & The West End Sound

The Chymical Vegas wedding highlights Cassady’s literate lyricism with an acoustic-based, multi-textured backing of guitars, mandolins and banjo that always courts tradition while never quite settling down to be traditional.

Album Notes
It was an invitation to a Carny wedding in Vegas . . . at The Venetian I think. Jack Daniels, The Book of Revelation, sleeping in the grass and a morning plane to Denver. A turbulent landing--a blue convertible. I lost my glasses somewhere along the way--thank god for Lens-Crafters . . . I guess. Pikes Peak, ghosts of Leadville, bottles of Coors, and altitude sickness. Orphaned children. The Matchless Mine and a Silver Dollar. Hot springs, no guardrails and then sunrise on the desert. Lots of desert.

“Ya got a dollar, man?” in Gallup. “Sorry.”

Rt. 666 and the Navajo Nation. Dinsoaurs, teepees, standing on a corner and an ancient extra-terrestrial invasion. Energy vortexes, hippies in Lexuses and running late. Dam the river and channel it’s energy. Irrigate and lay down sod. The damned American spirit.

Then Vegas, The Mirage and a hotel mirror I couldn’t trust. Sorry Elvis.

(Sometime later Shu bought a banjo and the electricity went out. We had a cold winter in New York. The beer froze outside of the studio door and the label was out of cash, so we had to wait awhile. Fortunately I had a copy of The Koran so no one froze.)
