Album Notes
"America 90 Proof" began in 1976 but was put on hold for a few years. Ol' Moose was a member of the Razzy Dazzy Spasm Band in eastern Pennsylvania with John Gorka, Russ Rentler, and Richard Shindell. Gorka and Shindell went on to become iconic singer-songwriters of the last several decades. Rentler got an M.D. but then returned to recording and traveling to play music. Thus, Ol' Moose is the last of the Razzy Dazzies to make his own work of music. That music is eclectic Americana--traditional blues, alt-country, folky-country, and the rest. The songs are mostly about living in rural poverty in the U. S.--not glorious but real enough. And always with a sense of humor about where life leads us. Ol' Moose has played in recent years with a bar band and more--the Bone Dry River Band--across the back roads of southern Illinois where the music scene is as bright as the sky is dark. Ol' Moose works as a philosopher on the side and with a bit of tracking one can find his writings on Tammy Wynette, Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Buffett, and Gram Parsons. The album is about the backside of America but it is not cynical--the blue-grassy sound of the Rural Kings adds a good feel to several of the tunes and the punchier sound of Bone Dry River Band adds just a hint of Rick Danko. Thematically the album leaves one with an old American notion--that we all must find "salvation on our own dime."
