Album Notes
It's not very comfortable to sit and write about yourself, but here goes. As a youngster I use to sit in front
of an old radio that was almost as big and looked like a Juke Box. I couldn't wait for the time for the "Al
Jolson Show" to come on. Even today after hearing so many wonderful voices I still think I like his the
best. Now then, I've gone and pretty much told you how old I am. Don't let that stand in your way of
hearing what I think is some not too shabby music. I first performed when I was five years old. I wrote
my first song in 1959. Through the years I've always stayed close to my music, but not until in the late
'70s did I get back into the swing of things. I was introduced to the music of Jimmy Buffet and instantly
was hooked. Mostly by his harmonica player, Fingers Taylor. There are many great harmomica players
out there today, but his style is the most intriguing. Not cutting Buffet short, his writing and singing is in
it's own league. But that's how it started. I moved from South Carolina to the "Red Neck Riviera", Gulf
Shores, Alabama in 1979 and played music for three years at a club called the "Florabama". If you've
never been there, put it at the top of your list of things to do. I won't go into detail. It's located right on the
Gulf of Mexico front beach, and sits right on top of the Florida/Alabama state lines. It's there in Alabama
that I started writing again and haven't stopped. I've played in more bands than I can remember, did a single
acoustic act for years, and my wife and I have done an acoustic duo for the past 20 years.
I'm retired now after over 45 hard years of work. I don't go fishing. I don't play golf. All I do is make music
with my friends. What a wonderful way to close it out. And it's amazing how music connects! My friends
range in age from 20 to 75. I'm not the "75"!! Yet!. We have a place here in Charleston, S.C. that is
envied by song writers afar, including Nashville. We get together once a week having sometimes over 20
writers to perform their work. There are no attitudes, everyone supports everyone else, and the atmosphere
is wonderful. Come check it out That ought to do it I think.? Like I said before, give a listen and see what
you think.

Good Stuff
This man is a South Carolina LowCountry original. This CD may have been recommended if you like Jimmy Buffett, but don't let that fool you. Tobin is on par with Buffett as a songwriter, but "Sack of Songs" has got more soul.
