Album Notes
This is Paul Loomis' second album, recorded a year after he and his family spent a year in central Argentina. Like Dry Ridge, from 2005, this is full of original stories and scenes not found elsewhere, from the travelogue in "the grand buffet" to the young couple in love (with science!) in "swimming hole" to the litany of high school recollections in "yearbook 87" to the 19th century dandy who just can't get over how great his hair looks (in "19th century dandy") to the lullaby of "oscar wilde and chamomile".

The songs feature Paul Loomis singing and playing guitar and harmonica with occasional xylophone and mandolin, as well as his first songs written on the banjo. David Fu's cello adds warmth to half the songs, and 3 local brass players are here to help make "yearbook 87" a beautiful swinging racket.
