Contagious Heartache 
"Austin's DB Harris and His Men of Action do pop-country right. Contagious Heartache (Nighttime Records) disguises its depressing subject matter in the sunny sounds of California, and be it Bakersfield bounce ("One More Time") or beach-blanket bingo ("Girls Gone Wild!"), Harris' vocals are as silken as Baja boy Chris Isaak." -- Austin Chronicle
How the 11 Audio Remedies Work
Issued by the ‘Nighttime Man’ db Harris
1. Girls Gone Wild! - Ingredients work by including images of ‘girls going wild’ to fun surfy beats, hand clapping, and live recordings of real women of this type.
2. Back to My Guitar - fusion takes place in the psyche by combining a sense of fun pop with much guitar and a sense of security in one’s escape to an always-reliable guitar.
3. All by My Lonesome - a ‘patent loneliness acceptance agent’ will go to work in the heart directing the victim to the work of the dramatic Johnnie Ray and obscure Phil Spector records.
4. Separation Time - Directives such as ‘laying in the sun’ and separating from other victims until desperation passes are included.
5. One More Time - Co-writer/singer Brian Hofelt of The Derailers has a ‘Buck Owens alternate’ of this remedy, but this one works via Farfisa.
6. Contagious Heartache - works through spooky A minor frequency and may cause side effects of repeating the phrase ‘It’s Going Round’.
7. Evelyn - ‘a remedy of warning’ will lodge itself in the heart and create a protective layer against women who wear ‘love lockets’. Highly dramatic formula!
8. Love Don’t Run - Use only in advanced stages of healing. Reverse effects may occur if combined with sad hillbilly music or The Smiths. ‘Was our love meant for a cemetery?’
9. Men of Action Theme Song - This instrumental concoction may be enhanced by adding a surf trip, watching old Mary Tyler Moore shows, or listening to the trumpeting of Herb Albert.
10. She’s a Dreamer - written with Monte Warden. Susanna Van Tassel is the girl doing the la-las. Most Orbisonesque track on the CD.
11. Torture - this is a virtually unknown duet ‘Everly Remedy’ written by John T. Loudermilk. Harmonies done by infected female victim Susanna Van Tassel.
