Album Notes
The Keansburg CD Story

1) Pride of Keansburg (3:03) The little town of my childhood on the Jersey Shore.

2) I Love Small Town America (3:56) Every town has a history and a story. I couldn’t help thinking about it as I would drive around the U.S. through what seemed like a never ending journey of small town after small town.

3) On Howard Avenue (3:39) The little street, on a little block, in the little town I grew up on, not unlike thousands of others just like it.

4) The Ballad of Anna Eberle (4:24) My next door neighbor who passed away when I was ten. It was the first time I felt what it was like to lose a close friend..

5) I Had To See To It (4:23) Anna Eberle, her husband, Jack, a WWI Veteran, and her brother, Freddy, were my next door neighbors. They were poor people with no living relatives. They were in unmarked graves close to 60 years. With the help of friends, I was able to secure permanent markers for their final resting places.

6) My Hometown (5:19) The anthem by The Boss, Bruce Springsteen, who experienced a similar upbringing just a few miles away.

7) The Old Drive-In Picture Show (3:53) Thinking about the Loew’s 35 Drive-In in nearby Hazlet, NJ. There were many evenings as a child playing on the playground before the movie, falling asleep during it, and waking up on the way home.

8) Sandy Hook (3:14) An acoustic instrumental composed about the landmark point separating the bay from the Atlantic ocean. After the Newtown- Sandy Hook, CT tragedy, it is a celebration of life.

9) Lucky Scars (4:00) Wonderful song by songwriter, James Cain, for which I felt a personal connection to my childhood in “The Burg”.

10) I Don’t Wanna Come Back (3:59) After inviting my dad to accompany me on the road for a tour, he simply replied with his dry sense of humor, “If I go anywhere, I just don’t wanna come back”. We laughed about it at the time. When he passed away, he didn’t come back.

11) Comin’ Home To Keansburg (4:31) This is how I feel each time I return to the Jersey Bayshore.

12) Pastme (2:59) Back in the day, folks would name their homes or cottages. My house was called Rose Cottage when we moved there in 1954, when I was one year old. Anna Eberle’s house was called PASTIME. That same sign now hangs on my home in Georgia.
