ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Here's an acoustic country/folk-rock tune inspired by, well, you know, a member of the opposite sex. Them what have been inspirin' us musicians ever since music was just 2 rocks banged together. "Oh no, not again!" I hear you groan. Yes, again. C'mon - you know you love that kind of stuff!

The Back-story:
The year was 1990. The place was the heartland of America. The scene was during Insane Gulf War I. The lady was an Arab, which did not go over well with my neighbors in said American heartland. Never mind that she was Lebanese, from a Christian family, a highly educated university professor, speaking flawless English.

OK, knee-jerking morons will be knee-jerking morons, and this is all water long since over the dam. The only reason I bring it up is because it all ties in with the title of this song.The protagonist's name meant "dew of the morning" in Arabic - essentially "Morning Dew".

The song was written while the relationship was in full swing, and it prophesied the eventual outcome of that "short-sweet-hard-to-beat" affair that blind-sides everyone at least once in a lifetime (at least I sincerely hope so!) In retrospect, it was doomed from the outset. Cultural differences? Linguistic barriers? No, no... nothing like that. The lady was (and I presume still is) an intellectual. I was (and still am) a banjo player. How do these things happen? Lord have mercy on us poor worms here below!

Written, performed, and produced by Robert Palomo, Banjo-centric Singer Songwriter
Recorded at DIY Toal Chaos Studio near Toksovo, Russia
