Album Notes
From the opening notes of the Ska/Country/DooWop title song to the simple and sublime jazz- spun Reprise this album with it’s Reggae, Funk, Bluegrass, Jazz, Country, Alternative and full on ROCK offerings, covers all the musical bases. Listen. Learn. Think and tap your toes. This album is a wild ride through the depths of deep time. By the end of this musical odyssey you are guaran-gol-dang-teed to learn a thing or two and actually have fun doing it.

The CD was recorded in living rooms and basements in Ketchikan and Juneau Alaska, as well as Seattle and Richland,Washington during the fall of 2009. The Ratfish Wranglers are a loosely knit bunch of talented musicians ranging in age from 18 to 60 that were “wrangled” by the Ratfish Brothers into recording prehistoric inspired tunes usually co-written by the ratfish duo. Some are solo efforts by Russ, others involved legions of players. One tune was recorded by Seattle’s infamous Big Dirt Band. Another by Ketchikan’s youthful Amish Robots. A couple of tunes were recorded by Juneau’s hottest bluegrass players while a couple of other songs feature Seattle hip hop legend Art of Verse!

All of the tunes though share the same inspirational source, the book and exhibit ‘Cruisin’ the Fossil Freeway’ by Kirk Johnson and Ray Troll. The CD was designed and engineered by Ratfish Russell Wodehouse and features a 16 page color lyric book chock full of Ray Troll’s paleo-art.
