Album Notes
This album represents a compilation of late-night, marathon recording sessions in dorm rooms, stairwells (good acoustics), and studio apartments.

Because of an irrational commitment to my old Tascam Portastudio, the quality on all tracks is full of all the popping and hissing of olde-timey, 4-track analog cassette tape recording. To anyone born after 1985, it will likely be indistinguishable from Alexander Graham Bell's first phone call...

Nonetheless, I hope that it brings some small amount of nostalgia to the folks who heard me play at UCLA or as the "KROQ Balladeer" in LA, or the Philly folks, from SHHS to grad school, who provided parties with captive audiences for me to entertain.

Special thanks to John Hurst for slide guitar on Family Values (Down by the Bayou) and for Mike Comstock's invaluable knowledge of all things musical and electronic. Most of all thanks to YOU, for listening and donating money to the cause.

All proceeds from this album will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS).

Great album
It's got a funky beat and I can dance to it!


A few thoughts
I got to be brutally honest. I've only listen to the Cd about 12 times in the past 24 hours so there might be some nuances that I am missing. Also I am no professional reviewer or musician but I know what I like. That being said, this CD is something I like. It has a great mix of songs that cover a number of genres. Folk, Rock, pop, blues...check, check, check, and check. The songs remind me of a number of artists from Steve Poltz (Ugly couple song and El Gato Tiny) to George Thorogood (My girlfriend treats me like a dog) to Tom Waits (Family Values) however they still remain uniquely Beemanesque (if I may be so bold).
Some songs are amusing, other very lovely and heartfelt but each song is fun and entertaining. For a dollar a song there isn't a better deal for your money!
