ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
PETER ALSOP'S
Classics for Grown-Ups
"EBENEZER'S MAKE OVER"
Moose School 706CD

In this "Classics for Grown-Ups" CD, kid's songwriter Peter Alsop goes back to his roots and mixes powerful songs from the feminist men's and women's movements with elements of Firesign theater zaniness, CBS Radio Mystery Theater drama, and his own engaging style of educating people while they're not looking!

EBENEZER'S MAKE OVER is a delightful hour of the Dickens "Christmas Carol" story blended with 20 new and classic movement songs by Holly Near, Geof Morgan, Charlie Murphy, Fred Small, Joe Jencks, Tom Hunter, Amy Fix, Romanovsky & Phillips, Allan Arnaboldi, Bob Blue, Tedd Judd, and, of course Peter Alsop himself!

As a close-minded college dean, Ebenezer Scrooge refuses to let the college's star basketball player "Not-So-Tiny Tim" start a chapter of a national men's organization on campus. That night Jacob Marley's ghost comes on the car radio and chastises Scrooge, warning him that three spirits will come to visit him. The first Spirit begins the "make over" in "Queer Eye For The Straight Guy" style by taking Scrooge back to his childhood to see where his sexist, racist attitudes were formed. The second Spirit, a "spirit of color", opens Scrooge's eyes to the "sea of privilege" white men "swim in". The third Spirit guides Scrooge into the future for a glimpse of what the world will look like if men don't change the gender-linked oppression that's ruining our planet. Alsop's "Kill The Children" is a chilling song that would make Bertolt Brecht proud!

EBENEZER'S MAKE OVER uses music, humor and story to raise issues and create discussion about gender issues, homophobia, men's relationship to war, work, our fathers, the women in our lives and each other. Includes: It's Only A Wee-Wee, (So What's The Big Deal?), Men Are Good, You Are My Spoon, Let The Woman In You Come Through, Shoulder To the Wheel, Chromosoma Phobia, You Ain't Been Doin' Nothin' If They Haven't Called You Gay!, Burning Times, I Ain't Afraid, What Kind of Brother Are You?, Five Moms & Three Dads, Womb Envy, The Hug, Gotta Lotta Livin' To Do, Give Yourself A Hand, Kill The Children, Foolish Notion, The Matador, It's My Penis, Singing For Our Lives
