ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When I was 18 years old, my father sat me down and cautioned that I would never be anything more than a third-rate musician. He then told me I should pursue a career in business. But despite his reservations, he invested $3000 in equipment for my high school rock-and-roll band, most of which, to no one’s surprise, he has yet to recover.

Thirty years later, following a business career that can best be summarized as a long sequence of serious mistakes and bad decisions, I seem to have recorded an album. I am hoping the results will eventually convince my father that I have, in fact, become a second-rate musician.

KAREN’S LEGS is a selection of pop compositions, written over a very long period of time, and recently recorded with the assistance of a wide variety of unusually talented artists. Do not look for a great deal of thematic unity, as I see no point in writing the same song twice. I grew up listening to top-40 AM radio, so the list of influences encompasses just about everything: glam rock, folk, blues, country and western, jazz, Latin, maybe even some classical accents. Don’t listen to this album if you suffer from a neurotic inconsistency disorder.

Cheers, Trout
