ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rich Spence has combined two of his favorite passions, songwriting and mushrooms, into one project, a CD of songs about mushrooms. The music is mainly acoustic and emphasizes the lyrics of the light hearted songs. The music is mainly folksy americana with some inspired silliness thrown in. For instance, Rich added a mushroom lexicon of lyrics to the melody of one of Mendelssohn's "Song Without Words". He also anthropomorphizes a deadly mushroom into a bride in "The Ballad of Anita Verna" and introduces the Jack Frost of the world of fungus in "Thelonius Fungus".
There are guitars, mandolins, trombones and harmonicas backing up Rich's gentle voice.
Although songs from his earlier recordings all have a laugh or two (or more) in them, this is the first time he has approached every song in a light hearted way. This recording is aimed for adults but is suitable for children too.

Novelty, sure, but also GREAT MUSIC!
I bought this CD for my sister's birthday; she and I are both into morel hunting, so I thought it would just be a fun novelty gift. But, to my surprise, the music turns out to be truly entertaining! Some of the tunes are stuck in my head...I keep singing "The Spore Knows How To Travel" and can't help but laugh every time I come to "a tiny pregnant hobo"!!! Again, while this might seem like a satiric take on mushrooms, the music is actually quality stuff and I'll listen to it many times. Thanks for a great CD!
