Album Notes
"If Joni Mitchell and Daffy Duck had a love child, he’d probably write songs just like JOHN FORSTER. His sharply observed satires range from sheer slapstick to Jon Stewart acute." (Scott Alarik, The Boston Globe)

"Entering Marion" is the critically acclaimed 1993 debut album of songwriter John Forster. When Christine Lavin heard some demos from the CD played on Vin Scelsa's free-form NYC radio show, she contacted Forster and brought him to the attention of the legendary independent label Rounder Records, who brought it out the following year. At the 1993 Indie Awards the CD earned an Honorable Mention and the songs became instant staples of the Dr. Demento Show.

Recorded with an all-star band that includes Eric Weissberg ('Dualling Banjoes'), Elliott Randall ('Reeling In The Years'), Richard Crooks (Bob Dylan's band), bass legend Wayne Pedzwater, Jon Cobert, Dave Fields, George Wadenius and others, the CD is remarkable for the way high production values have been used in support of genuinely funny songs.

In the words of Tom Lehrer, the reigning satirist of a previous generation: "You don't need me anymore. Now you've got John Forster to kick around."
