Album Notes
BULLY OF THE TOWN We learned this from the Holy Modal Rounders, but the song is older than that. In fact, it's timeless.

FALLING RAIN BLUES This was the first song that Lonnie Johnson recorded back in the Twenties. Forty-five years later, it was also the last.

ODDS AND ENDS A song from Bob Dylan's basement, plus some stuff that we were rash enough to throw in.

WHITE BIRD For all captives in golden cages who need to fly. A song by the Sixties' band It's a Beautiful Day.

REAL DOWN BLUES An up song about feeling down. That's Brother Ben sitting in on keyboards.

PINK BURRITO (GET A LOAD OF THIS) Originally performed by the immortal R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenader buddies who wrote it down at the trailerpark.

CHINA DOLL This is a song about feeling fragile and under assault, yet somehow keepin' on. The words are by Robert Hunter, the tune by Jerry Garcia.

TEAR IT UP Johnny Burnette and the Rock'n'Roll Trio played this during the brief, bright rockabilly moment in the Fifties.

A RIVER OF LIGHT This song started as a number called "Cave of Gold," which never really worked. So we turned it inside out, and then it did.

ROCKIN' AT MIDNIGHT There's that Caldonia, cuttin' up again. Roy Brown did this in the Forties, but we heard it from Robert Plant's ad hoc band The Honeydrippers.

OPERATION CAKEWALK Written in the second week of the invasion. It was all there from the beginning.

RAIN A Beatles song we did at Greg's party with Greg on mandolin.

FEAST OF THE MAU MAU Dangerous kind of fest, don'tcha think? Screamin' Jay Hawkins is responsible for serving up this mess.

WHO KNOWS WHERE THE TIME GOES? "Across the morning sky all the birds are leaving." Sandy Denny's classic song.

IT WON'T TAKE LONG The Canadian seeress Ferron wrote this one bright night.

I SEE THE LIGHT If nothing can be trusted, where can you look for truth?
