Album Notes
Peter Lehndorff writes humorous songs about everyday life. Songs that try to poke fun at things we generally overlook: our cars, what we eat, where we live and the things that most normal people are too afraid to admit they are even afraid of.

Love on the Line includes Yellow Datsun, a duet with Dar Williams. East Longmeadow looks at suburban life, commuting to work in a stationwagon and trying to get back home again. Paranoid is an anthem to fear. The title track Love on the Line is about a couple that marries during a conference call. I Wish You Were Dead is a letter from heaven.

The cd features studio help from some of the finest musicians in New England including mandolin wiz Kevin Lynch and guitarist Jeff Pevar (of David Crosby's band CPR), Chris Haynes on piano and accordian, Richard Downs on tuba and bass and many others.

“Click and Clack” on NPR’s CarTalk have played many of my songs and Peugeot was featured on Car Tunes Volume 1: Disrespectful Car Songs.

“ ...intelligent lyrical vignettes of everyday life and the comical trappings of suburbia... delivered with an acute sense of comedic timing.” -The Springfield (MA) Union News

Singer-songwriter Peter Lehndorff laces his thoughtful compositions with acerbic wit. The sharpness of his humor is only matched by the crispness of his backing musicians. Together, they paint a wry portrait of modern life with all its absurdity intact. – Editor's Pick, 2006:

“Peter Lehndorff has established his own voice, his own good natured wonder at the all-too-visible mysteries of this modern world.” – Jim Foley, KXCI fm Tuscon (AZ)

Tom Lehrer with chops. four stars – John McLaughlin, WESU fm, Ohio

Imagine John Prine type songs played with a Leo Kottke delivery. Lehndorff’s songs are filled with the kind of wry humor that leaves you by turns, guffawing at life and nodding with recognition. Standouts are Yellow Datsun, featuring Dar Williams, and East Longmeadow, a suburban sendup that builds to a perfect punch-line. Paranoid will leave you saying “me too!” to at least some of the catalogue of fear. – Music Matters Magazine
