"Somebody Stop Me": The CD
Ah yes, Gabriel Farago. He's another person who took an interest
in my music and became a catalyst for my next adventure in music.
After hearing the "Hard Act To Follow" demo, he felt I needed to
go to Nashville and record a CD, using some of Music City's finest
studio musicians. I saw it, not so much as a chance to make a
record, but rather a way to get some professional recordings
made of some of my songs. It would also look better to send out
a professionally recorded CD, as opposed to a good old "demo tape".
So in February of 1997, we went into Reflections Studio in
Nashville, along with the great musicians that Gabriel lined up,
and cut four of my songs ("Somebody Stop Me", "Where The Lover
Meets The Road", "Nuclear Family Fallout" and "If God Loves Me").
In addition, I sang six other songs that I did not write. Gabriel
provided the backing tracks from previously recorded sessions,
and the 10 song "Somebody Stop Me" CD was born. It was
released by National Sound Distributors and although the song,
"Somebody Stop Me" got very little airplay in the U.S., it got
quite a bit of play in Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
I still get e-mails from fans over there who really liked the song,
even though it wasn't available for purchase over there. I've
personally sent out numerous autographed copies in appreciation
of their interest and support. It meant alot to me to hear from them.
