how to order this cd
(available for download, too)

Recorded in the Fall of 2007, this CD is a new take on a dozen of my earlier songs. 

All the songs on this CD were written and first recorded in the decade of 1987-97. A lot of songs here are much-requested audience favorites. Many of them have changed slightly over the years -- a new line here, a new attitude there.  Some were only available as "live" cuts before.  This is a new "studio" recording, but is straightforward recording: no gimmicks or fancy edits.  Two of the songs, "Hopelessly Midwestern" and "Duct Tape Blues" have monologues embedded -- in the old folk days we called this a "rap."  (That word had different meaning then.)  I had fun giving these songs a new spin in the studio -- I hope you have fun with them on the flip side.
