Songs of Love and Porkchops

by Scott T. Miller

A long, slow blues with ducks... a love confession to a porkchop... cadenzas gone wild! Features mostly singing and acoustic guitar, in a happy blues mode. The guitar is really quite whippy. The percussion is truly home-made. The vibe is delicious.

Album Notes
Recorded in the bedroom of a neurotic cat, (and I mean "cat," as in "feline") and mixed by Kid Andersen at Greaseland Studios, this recording turned out even more interesting than planned. It explores the two main themes of blues; love and porkchops. It also pays tribute to the third primary blues theme, alcohol.

The opening tune is a mash-up of the "travellin' man" theme and the "porkchop" theme, and features some sparkling ukulele work. This is followed by a tune about this guy who keeps trying to do wrong, but he is hampered in this respect by a nose. Then there is a song about love and rum and cough syrup. A solo guitar tune pays homage to Lonnie Johnson, Scott Joplin, and Sun Ra. Then there is a "cry in my beer" song about fish. Sound effects are featured on the next tune, and some story telling. We follow with my contribution to the Excello "king bee/queen bee" lexicon, and then, another porkchop song that sounds remarkably like, as Kid put it, a 50s song recorded in the 70s.

Perhaps you recall, if you are old enough, the long, weird, jazzy, beat-poetry type songs that you used to hear on FM radio, down in the 80s on the dial. There's a song like that on here. It features a chorus of earthworms, and some pretty nifty jazz-like guitar. Staying in the jazzish mode is a song that describes how I kind of felt as a teenager (bucket of mud). I got better. Then we hear the song of a lonely diner, followed by a song about a guy who has what we call the bad love. The bad bad love, not the good bad love. The kind of bad love that we don't recommend. We do not condone his behavior, nor does our legal department.

"What's up with the ducks?" is a question that I anticipate regarding song #13. I think ducks go well with blues. Finally, to end with, we have an instrumental of uncertain origin, stylistically speaking.

The cover art was done by the same guy who played the music.

Music by the Love child of Groucho Marx and Elmore James
The music world didn't know what it was lacking until now....
This guy sings the blues that make sense in these times.... Porkchops are what drives most men to weep salty tears .. mixed with the guitar playing that would make Charlie Christian drool...
A wonderful creative effort... don't miss it....
