Album Notes
The Workin’ Man’s Special, Midwestern Exposure’s second full length album, noticeably exudes a high

melting pot of Blues, Folk, Country, and Rock quite an enthralling experience for the ears. His lyrical
efforts of leisurely drives from the tracks of The Walrus Rabbi have now turned to angsty metaphorical
rides about growing old and restless. ‘It’s getting down to the wire,’ Cam says in ‘March On’ and we
certainly believe that with The Workin’ Man’s Special; Midwestern Exposure is ready for big things, and
