Fortunes

(fossil 187)
 

Released on LP vinyl in 1987

Note: This album was remastered for CD in late 2004. What you
can purchase here is a "music CD-R" in a slimline case, 
with insert, disc autographed by Joel Mabus -- the price
is the same as a factory-made cd, $16
 shipping & handling included. 
[How to order this CD-R]


From 1987, all are original songs in acountry-folk setting,with Tom T Ball on bass. This was my 4th record, and the first on the Fossil Records label. It is the earliest recording of mine currently available, except for the vintage LP market.

" ...he proves himself a superb lyricist...
a true master's touch..."
- Bluegrass Unlimited
