GET YOUR MONKEY OFF MY DOG, the Bobs' 14th CD is a stunning compilation of 18 (or 19, depending on how you count) new, original songs sprung from the dangerous minds of ASCAP-award winners (and Grammy-noms for vocal arranging) The Bobs.
Recorded in Seattle, Berkeley and in Room 144 of the Best Western in Marshalltown Iowa (yep, that's right!), this collection features guest appearances by former Bobs Gunnar Madsen and Lori Rivera as well as the Bobs' current lineup of Dan Bob Schumacher, Richard Bob Greene, Amy Bob Engelhardt and Matthew Bob Stull.
What's the album about? Oh, the usual assortment of obvious topics. Tubas, fast food, feng shui, the wild west, vibration, lame pickup lines, the faux poor, wrong numbers, annoying simians, religious cooking, cow tipping, hope, David Mamet, giant bagels, dating, poverty, and the ability to par-tay...
Produced by Richard Bob Greene.
