ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Shortly after being disabled from a severe case of Valley Fever, Dr. Tom Moss received the life -threatening diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia. He was admitted to the hospital for treatment of both. He took his guitar and a book of poems. During the next 6 months of treatment (of which he spent 4 1/2 months in the hospital), he began writing poems about his experience. At the urging of friends and hospital staff, he put these poems to music. . These songs are noted for their humor and inspiration and relate his experiences during treatment. Dr. Moss has been playing these songs to cancer support groups, conferences, music therapists, physician groups, and nurses to much acclaim.

These songs are his story.

Tom's inspiration for his songs range from the orange-colored chemotherapy in "The Chemo Blues", to the drug nicknamed "ampho-terrible" because of its many side effects. "Going Home" is his experience from a life threatening fever of 107.4 and is dedicated to his wife's enduring support. His hilarious tribute to his IV pole is given in "Gilbert"; his near death experience is expressed in "Tunnel Vision"; and his understanding of the importance of accessing your creative energy is related in "The Inner Song". "Just Be You" is perhaps the most popular song on the CD and is a crowd favorite.


Enjoy the music and thanks for listening!
Tom

Not a music expert - but I loved the CD - truth is I was a childhood friend of Tommy's and wanted to hear his words and music. He passed away from his illness on April 16. Thank you - you seem like a great company. I will shop often.

Amazing CD
I'm so sad to hear that Tom passed away. I played drums on all songs but the last. In making this cd, I got to know Tom and his wife, and they are both amazing people. The music is filled with passion and soul. Tom played these songs for the children and hospital staff while he was there for an extended stay due to his illness. No doubt he had them all rolling on the floor with some of them and warming hearts with others. So sorry to find out that this great guy is gone. Why can't all the BAD people get sick and go away?
