Album Notes
Born in 1947 in Manchester,N.H., Mark was quickly transplanted to Macon, Ga. where he was introduced to the magic of the Deep South and the sounds of Southern roots music. After moving to Atlanta, Mark spent many years playing drums for various bands along the southern circuit as well as singing and songwriting.

In later years, Mark turned his talents to engineering and production and eventually created and built his own studio; WonderDog Sounds in Marietta, Ga.

After a string of life altering events, Mark decided it was time to combine these talents and then produced, wrote, sang, and engineered "In This World But Not Of It"

Super !! Super !!! Great Southern Rock & Soul


The more I Listen, the more I love this CD!
This CD is awesome!!! It covers a lot of different sounds, each song better than the last; all rock. Mark's voice is really soulful. The lyrics are so multifaceted that each time I listen I get a different perspective. Love it Love it Love it.

Remeber the first time you heard Lynyrd Skynyrd?
 Remember the first time you heard Lynryd Skynyrd or Waylon Jennings? Ever wonder why every Y chromosome has been squeezed out of rock music? Listen to this and rock proud. No two songs on this sound alike. This is debut CD that sounds clean and uncluttered with a little Memphis Soul, a pinch of Nashville, a major dose of Blues and a basting of Bayou Boogie. Listen to this once and try to get these songs out of your head. I double dog dare ya!


Classic Southern and country rock
Recorded with a bunch of studio musicians and self-produced in his very own "WonderDog Sounds" recording studio in Marietta, GA, Mark Michaelson delivers a fine and convincing debut CD. While musically balancing between classic Southern-Rock and Country-Rock on some of the tracks ( opener "Kickstart", the Skynyrd-like riff-rocker "Goodbye Atlanta", "It's a Mistake", and "Leavin’ Wind"), other tunes dig into authentic Blues & Soul territory, with "This Time" being reminiscent of the late great Dru Lombar of Grinderswitch fame. The up-tempo boogies "John Law" and "Man of Constant Sorrow" would perfectly fit on one or another of the early Atlanta Rhythm Section albums, while "Humdinger" and "If" feature a voice and Tony Joe White swamp groove that makes chills go down the listeners' spine. Suited with a great voice that perfectly matches the music, and a strong and down-to-earth production, Michaelson obviously can do nothing wrong on a CD that is covered with a tasty and delicate "Southern Flavor" from the first tune till the last WELL DONE!!

Excellent! No two songs sound the same. This rocks!
Everything about this CD is great: The songs, the vocals, the musicianship and the recording quality. This recording sounds as clean as a Tom Petty or Eagles record while maintaining the high energy of a live performance. This is southern rock with everything from Memphis Soul to Otis Rush to swamp boogie mixed in.
