Album Notes
~Mastered by CAPITOL RECORDS Hollywood CA~
For strictly artistic reasons, the composer insisted we offer this combined edition, where the material is presented as it was originally written, produced, and was intended to be heard. The label is losing money on it, but, well, a promise is a promise. “Frackin’ Fool Frackin’ Hoedown” is true to the author’s vision, and a good $ value. This is the 'STORYTELLER'S SPECIAL', and it works the way it was supposed to. Running time about 8 1/2 minutes. For lyrics, see the individual song titles. DETAILS: Guest vocalist Ernest J. Silverback gives a patina’d sterling performance as the old man who made the wrong decisions for all the right reasons in “Frackin’ Fool” (a.k.a “The Old Frackin’ Fool”), a cautionary tale ballad on a contemporary subject. Silverback was once quoted as saying, “Where I come from, you are your own grandpa.” Another time, when this reporter asked what he thought of his newfound audience of younger folks, he replied, “Ya gotta love these kids – they’re all grandchildren to me. They seem to understand the connection between heart and head, between hand and Earth. When you do this, it affects that. They’ve learned that everything is connected. And, bless ‘em, they love to listen! They digest the music of life with their ears – and take the energy forward." He paused and took a long, slow breath, staring out at some distant point on the horizon. Then he added quietly, "They know. We are ALL stewards of this place."

Then the up-tempo “Frackin’ Hoedown”, (a.k.a “Another Frackin’ Hoedown”), brings all the ECLECTRIC Music Players together for a barn thumping follow-up to the old man ballad. Under Steward’s direction, veteran instrumentalists Floren deKichen (fiddle) and Mr. E. S. Carpenter (musical saw) team up with new blood as well as old friends from Steve’s 2010 album, Ridin’, Drivin’, Wakan... and within the devilishly angelic ECLECTRIC CHORUS, the voices of Serena Ann Green Eagle and the lovely Floral Clustah are joined by recent standout inductees li'l Maxie Ripnit on the high end, and the one and only Big Lurch Hooper on the bottom.
