ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
HOWIE NEWMAN: ONE OF A KIND

One of the most engaging performers on the New England folk circuit, Howie Newman combines music, comedy and audience participation to provide a truly unique entertainment experience.

Although he is best known for writing baseball parodies (e.g. "Blasted in the Bleachers"), Newman's songs cover a broad range of user-friendly subjects. Topics include television commercials, getting up in the morning, cell phones, middle age dating, intergalactic garbage collection and more.

His new album, "Trust Me, You'll Like It," was released in May 2006 and is available from CD Baby (www.cdbaby.com/newman3).

Howie generally performs solo but "Here We Go Again" is a lively collection of folk/country rock, with a full backup band on six of the seven tracks. Featured musicians include Billy Novick (clarinet), Paul Rishell (electric guitar) and Tom Belliveau (pedal steel guitar).

"Here We Go Again" includes a frustrated romantic's search for the ultimate aerosol ("Products on TV"), a lament for the early morning riser ("Getting Up Brings Me Down") and a dissertation on intergalactic trash collection ("Cosmic Garbageman Rag").

Also on the disc are his Fenway Park classic, "Blasted in the Bleachers," and "One Day on the Gas Line," a tale of love (and loss) in the strangest of places. Did you know that Howie wrote, recorded and produced the official fight song of the 1978 Southern Methodist University football team? If you missed it the first time around, "Mustang Mania" is reprised on his new CD.

Just to keep you honest, Howie included one serious song ("A Little Sympathy"), which features the jazz-style recorder riffs of the late Bruce Solof.

The album is basically up-tempo, folk/country rock that's straightforward and an easy listen.

Matt Roberson - The Daily Athenaeum

Off-the-wall and silly, and really, really catchy.
Howie's songs sound like an acoustic-based Weird Al, but are much more good-natured. With titles ranging from "Blasted in the Bleachers" to "Getting Up Brings Me Down," Newman is an expert on daily-activities songs -- all of which are off-the-wall and silly. They're also really, really catchy.

Indie Shout (www.indieshout.com)

Great, upbeat folk!
This CD reminds me of my childhood years and eating at the old-school Shakey's restaurants, where a band would take the stage and fill the air with the upbeat sounds of clarinets, guitars, pianos, and drums while you enjoyed your sausage pizza. This is a very happy collection of ditties about sports, beer, and interstellar garbage collectors. I like this CD...now I'm going to order a pizza!

Fun to listen to. Makes you laugh.
Howie's recordings are fun. They make you laugh and when is that ever bad, well except at a funeral maybe but otherwise buy this guys stuff it is GREAT!

Songwriter's Monthly

The carefree music is just as fun as the witty words.
From cosmic garbage to commercialism to gas to sports, Howie Newman seems to have an endless supply of humorous topics to sing about. A perfect marriage, the carefree music is just as fun as the witty words.

Marilyn O'Malley -Victory Review

Short, sweet and very humorous
Funny guy Howie Newman has returned after an 18-year hiatus from performing. Apparently his baseball songs led to an 18-year career as a sportswriter. Well if you like silly stuff, you'll be glad to have this short, sweet and very humorous recording.



Howie's satirical lyrics are framed by some very well-played honky tonk with a little hint of ragtime. "Products on TV" is about those many things for sale that are claimed to attract women. "Blasted in the Bleachers" is Howie's Fenway Park Classic, just as funny today as it was years ago and "Cosmic Garbageman Rag" is a playful criticism of our trashy ways as we travel the galaxies. Very fun and well produced album.

Fun CD
Howie's was such a nice guy and sent me his CD for my college radio folk music show. This CD is very funny and well produced. The songs are all very original and definitely of interest to everyone, especially New Englanders. I can't wait to see him live when i visit Melrose, MA.
