Album Notes
Alan Barcus is a singer-songwriter with eclectic tastes
and a penchant for unusual and deeply-felt songs.
He has scored eleven movies and written the book,
music and lyrics for three Chicago-produced musicals.
Each of his songs seems to have a little humorous
twist or a personal insight that resonates with the listener.

Among his best-known songs (all of which are included
on his new CD, "Alan Barcus . . Don't I Know") are
"You're My Cubs," the official fight song of the Chicago
Cubs, which plays at Wrigley Field during home games;
"The Critic's Lullaby," beloved by critically-abused
actors everywhere; and "Just Keep Holdin' On," from the
musical Spellbinders.

His One-Man-Show-on-Steroids, "Confessions of a
Reluctant Musician," has been playing in the Chicago
area for several months to large crowds and enthusiastic
response. Even the critics seem to have forgiven him
for "The Critic's Lullaby."

"This CD is fantastic. I play songs from it
on the air frequently, and we're not even
a music show.
--Rick Kogan

Absolutely loved it. Listened to it in car on a long trip and it made the miles
This CD was recommended to me by a friend who knows the artist both personally and professionally. She comes from a rich background in jazz music and I trust her judgement. The selection of tunes are both lyrically refreshing and musically on the mark. Barcus' singing style is reminicent of the late 50's piano bar style which I adore. It's my kind of music.

Completely Enjoyed the CD
I read the article in the Trib Magazine by Rick Hogan(I think) and decided to buy your CD. Iam glad I did. This is not my normal process on buying CDs. I can relate to "It Ain't Easy Gettin Old."

Lynn Doyle

Great - makes you FEEL
Heard about this CD from Sunday morning with Rick Kogan, It Ain't Easy Gowing Old is one of the best blues songs I'vr ever heard. The entire CD is Great!

Miluna Fausch

Tasty tunes!
Alan has written some quality material and assembled some great musicians to deliver it. As a performer, The Critic's Lullaby soothed my soul!

Ken Knabel

Don't I Know It
Way to go Alan. I've know your all through college and I didn't know you could sing. Loved it!
