Album Notes
It’s about Truth, and it’s about Time!

Ten tracks here – with one exception all are songs written by Joel Mabus. All newly composed in the past few months – with that same exception: Track 9 is Joel's musical setting of a famous poem (now in public domain) by Robert Frost: "Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening"

Herein you’ll find a salute to teachers, the romantic memory of a moonlit shore, a banjo tribute to the sound of a silver coin, and a train inside a guitar. You’ll find dogs in heaven, scoundrels in hell, a grudge against infernal devices, an essay on Truth in the age of mendacity, a wistful Odyssean jazz ballad – and that lonesome fellow with his skeptical horse on a snowy evening.

From the album jacket:

Time & Truth are the two
stout threads that knit
together these songs.
It’s either Time & the
truth it tells on me, or
Truth & the time it takes
me to tell it.
Joel Mabus

Quotes about Joel Mabus:

“Joel Mabus is the Joe DiMaggio of the folk music world - a virtuoso who can make the toughest plays appear effortless.”
Ron Olesko of WFDU-FM (Fordham University, New York City)

“Joel Mabus -- what a player! And a great songwriter, and another guy that can walk out there with just a guitar and hold an audience. And I love that about him.”
Jeff Daniels, renowned actor & singer-songwriter

“The dean of singer-songwriters”
Rich Warren, host of Chicago’s WFMT nationally syndicated radio show, The Midnight Special
