Album Notes
From The Art Of Peace liner notes:

A decade into the 21st Century, it’s obvious we’ve advanced enormously as a species. We’ve made great progress in science, mathematics, architecture, medicine, and technologies of all kinds. But sadly, we’ve also retained or improved our capacity to act on our baser nature: with great increases in our ability to make war, in demagoguery, xenophobia, greed, and selfishness as well. For all our “greatness,” millions still suffer and die because of violence, poverty, famine, and disease. No other creature destroys and mistreats others of its kind so efficiently and ruthlessly. And so it seems this may well be both the best and worst century in the history of mankind.
Where are those who value and perpetuate love, respect, compassion, and peace above all things? We simply cannot survive without these in abundance. What’s more, in this world full of religions and religious people, it’s rare to find those who practice even the basic tenets common to all faiths. Many even act out their baseness in the name of their religions. May the Creator of the universe forgive us, have mercy on us, and help us to learn and grow into our fullest potential as human beings.

Nvwato hiyadv,

Disclaimer: If you purchased this CD thinking that you were getting a volume of insightful and encouraging, yet challenging songs, you have my sincerest apologies… or my deepest thanks (take your pick). In any case, any resemblance of this recording to actual music was unintentional and purely coincidental. Furthermore, the fine people who participated in this project actually thought they were part of a blind taste test for some nondescript and banal new cola drink or fabric softener (I’m not sure which anymore). I guess the joke was on them… or perhaps it was on me…

MJ: lead/background vocals, acoustic guitar, various obscure and potentially (potentially? most likely!) offensive noises
John Osbourne: tremolo, slide, and electric guitar, mandolin, resonator, and dobro
Rodger Morris: electric piano, organ, keyboard pads
Lee Francis: uke bass, five string bass, and of course, the P-bass
David Henry: one man string quartet
Daniel Dennis: drums, djembe, cajone, shakers, tambourine, triangle, electric and acoustic fence
Mason Douglas: additional background vocals
Daisy: undying love (or is it just unapologetic opportunism aided by a keen sense of who has the treats?)
Hoss: kudos for his steadfast indifference to anything unless it’s related to his “girl” or food

Favorite Quotes Award goes to David Henry for “Aha, Mr. Sucky Note, we meet again!” and “It’s not pitchy, it’s spicy!”

Unauthorized reproduction of this recording is not only a bad idea, it’ll get you prosecuted. Besides, it’ll make my dad mad at you. He hates it when people copy others’ hard work.
