Album Notes
This CD may well represent a slight change of direction for The Owl Watches. Here, the humorous element of my muse gets free reign for the most part. This is my instrumental poke in the eye at the record industry and all its attendant idiocy and folly. At this point in life, I KNOW I have about a snowball's chance in Hell of getting signed to a label (too old, no commercial potential, not photogenic enough for MTV, you know the drill). I chose the path of maintaining my artistic integrity and having some fun with it at the same time. Hopefully you the listener will find moments here that will make you laugh, cry, watch Batman reruns and call out for Chinese food.

Again, it was me playing all manner of guitars (electric and classical), basses and keyboards and percussion, with some very special guest drummers in Tom Scotto (Tony Island), Philip Hart (Z-Axis), Jim Dunn (Lord Only) and the mysterious Cass Eo. Also appearing are members of The Busted Brass and The Long Winds.

This album is dedicated to the memory of Ahmet Ertegun and Tom Dowd.

Recorded for the most part at The Owl's Nest South studio in Atlanta GA with parts of "It Takes A Village To Raise An Idiot" done at Funkyard Dog in upstate NY. Mastered by Scott Trihn and Dave Strohauer @ Earthshaking Music in Atlanta GA

MANY accordions were harmed in the making of this album.
