ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Years ago they taught us
'Give me liberty or death'
But nowadays they say
We need less freedom
More security..."
-- from the song "Old as Dirt Grandpa with a Guitar"

This CD was released to mark the 25th anniversary of my military service on a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier during the 1979 "Iraninan Hostage Crisis." That's when I was first introduced to the geo-politics of petroleum.

Dead-on tracks like Old As Dirt Grandpa with a Guitar, Walk for Peace and Every Woman Mary make this CD just as if not more powerful now than when it was first released in 2004.

From the Homeland Security liner notes:
"Hajb the Mad Poet says that one man's ideology is another man's bigotry. So perhaps instead of spreading so much ideology around the globe, it might be better to fill our local ideological practices with so much love that everyone who encounters them finds blessings instead of oppression."

a detailed demonstration of heavenward thinking and interminable truth
a detailed demonstration of heavenward thinking and interminable truth...that tells us we've still a fighting chance for survival if we'll replace the dampening effects with downsizing and common sense

Duss Rodgers - Catsask Music and Entertainment

Real! True! Passionate! I love this guy...
Real! True! Passionate! I love this guy... Calming mellow and real lyrics are what give this gentleman truth, soul and true originality. We need more story telling in the world like this. Hajb had me locked in my chair upon hearing the first bar of " Old as Dirt Grandpa with a Guitar". Covering topics like the economy, social unrest, children, love and life Hajb gives us hope for better times while calming us with wonderful and soothing guitar riffs. Mingling stories with song as he educates and opens eyes to reality with love and kindness is something I have not seen very often in my lifetime, and someone who has the strength to carry it through as Hajb demonstrates is a person of such profound character that I am in awe of his musical strength. A fantastic rendition Hajb! I wish you much success in your endeavours and never let anyone hold you back, for your strengths will be a guide to those of us who cannot be strong for ourselves. One love, one heart, one mind...
