ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I hadn\'t even officially released \"A Tribute to Love\" when I started working on my next solo album--\"What Color Is Your Dragon? Folk Music with Delusions of Grandeur\".

The album started when I realized I have a LOT of songs recorded that are not yet available on full-length albums. I listened to many of them and realized most were filk songs.

So I decided that would be the main focus of this album. I would compile a list of songs on a variety of Sci Fi/fantasy genres including: Lord of the Rings, Bugs Bunny, Firefly, Star Wars, Dr. Who, and Harry Potter. Added to that would be a few songs I wrote a long, long time ago (not necessarily in a galaxy far away) and a few new songs exploring new musical genres (blues, in particular).

The result is my latest album available in August 2008--What Color Is Your Dragon?. The album features 17 tracks of fun music that one fan compared to the Brobdingnagian Bards\' chart-topping album, \"Brobdingnagian Fairy Tales\".

That is kind of appropriate because the first song on the album, \"Don\'t Go Drinking With Hobbits\" was inspired by real-life event that happened several years ago at DragonCon when I went out drinking with hobbits and by the end of the weekend was so sick I had no voice to sing with. \"The Virgin Diet\" was a song inspired by another song popularized by The Bards called \"Do Virgins Taste Better Medley\", as well as the fan-produced magazine that arose from that song, The Medieval Virgin.

I get a lot of emails from fans with song lyrics. Now and then some songs really stand out and I record them. \"The Nazgul Song\" and \"The Lusty Young Sith\" were written by fans who decided to parody songs played by Brobdingnagian Bards. The lyrics made me smile so much, I decided they had to be recorded.

Nevertheless, \"What Color Is You Dragon?\" has taken on a life of it\'s own as I dug into my experience to write most of these songs about some of my favorite Sci Fi and fantasy fandoms. This was a wonderful way to share my love of those fandoms in song. I am happy to share this album with you.

Oh! A special thanks to Nikki O\'Shea (www.dragonpressgraphics.com), the Bards Comic artist, who beautifully designed the CD cover. I hope you enjoy the new album.

I listened to this CD together with my mother and when answering the title, we both choose a different color of dragon.
Still we both loved this album. It has a variety of songs going for happy to more bluesy indeed.
Don\'t know how he does it, but Marc always manages to combine different genres of music and still you like all the songs.

Pleasant Peasant Music
This is a fun music cd. It is chock full of homages to many sci-fi and fantasy staples including Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, Star Wars, and Firefly to name a few. The songs never really border on parody, but hold the original works with a certain reverence which is not seen much in this genre of music. Would recommend to any sci-fi or fantasy fans or anyone else with a sense of humor.

Lynn McKinney

A must-have for comedy music fans
For fans of filk and comedy music, this album is required listening, full of variety and fun. If you like Star Wars, the Lusty Young Sith will prove a tour-de-\'Force\' of humor. Lord of the Rings fans will find The Nazgul Song absolutely \'precious,\' and Harry Potter fans will be \'howling\' at My Father Was A Werewolf. (OK, Marc\'s much funnier than I am; I admit it. ;-) )

The album is more than worth it for any one of these three songs, plus you get all the rest, too! You\'ll be glad you bought it.

Raise your glasses to March Gunn!
You don\'t need to drink with hobbits to toast this CD! Traditional Irish folk music and witty lyrics that will make you grin. Three cheers to Marc Gunn for more memorable ballads!

Tyler Cassel

Praise for the cat loving bard
I have listened to lots of Marc\'s cat stuff and really enjoyed it. I found this CD equally amusing. I have recommended it to my friends, one being a Dr. Who fan was excited that it had one. Basically this is a very good CD and you should also check his other stuff too.

Really like it. Great stress relief when standing in lines or during rush hour traffic.

Lusty and Busty
This CD is fun to listen to from the start, it\'s a definite one to get, whether you\'re just sitting at home alone, or have some friends over to game or drink. I must say, I\'ve my own problem with drinking with Hobbits, since a number of my friends are Hobbits. About as bad as drinking with Klingons at times.

Great album!
This stuff is awesome. Thanks for being out there, Marc, and introducing me to a whole bunch of fresh music through your podcasts.

Updated Irish Music & Humor Equals a Great Listen!
Traditional sounding Irish music, generally with light hearted lyrics that more modern & mainstream audiences can relate to and occasionally even traditional Irish tunes! Due to his lack of brogue, you can even manage to understand the lyrics to most of your traditional favorites finally!

The best part however of any Mark Gunn album are the untraditional & very humorous lyrics, often cat related or on non-traditional subject matter set to traditional Irish musical stylings. When you combine traditional Irish musical styling with a quick wit and an Irish sense of humor you can\'t help but have a grand time!
