ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Timothy" was requested by UAHuntsville's Dean of Liberal Arts, Glenn Dasher, who enjoys the original version by the Buoys. Glenn is the first person who actually likes the pleasPlease version of his song request.

Robert Fitzpatrick sounds so much like Jim Morrison that during the performance, while the band was stifling laughter because the outlandish lyrics are about eating people, the audience was enthralled by Robert's vocals.

Here's what Peg Harmon had to say:

'Your show was really fun. I had NO idea what to expect which made it even more interesting. I was mostly enjoying the comedic aspect of the show until y’all got up there and did “Timothy.” When he started singing, I swear I got goose bumps and I must have time traveled because I could have been listening to Jim Morrison and the Doors. I hope y’all recorded it so you can hear for yourselves how amazing all of you sounded. Creepy Shocking Beautiful – How did you do that?? Your cover was better than the original.'

The original recording by the Buoys was banned on many radio stations in 1971. Rumor has it that Rupert Holmes, the composer, specifically wrote the lyrics to get the song banned, thereby bringing more attention to the Bouys. The song did go all the way to number 17 on the Billboard charts. Mr. Holmes' later hit, "Escape (The Piña Colada Song)", was never banned.

The instrumentation on this single is:

Robert Fitzpatrick - vocals
Jana Savanapridi - drums
Terri Cavender - organ
Jim Cavender - organ
Emily Bodnar - lead guitar

More singles are in the works, each one in a different style, done the pleasPlease way, always surprising the audience.
