Thumb Thump

(fossil 1402)
 

Released in 2002 
how to order this cd
(available for download, too)

This disc is the answer to my many friends who have been asking 
for an album of blues & ragtime.  Herein are songs of hard luck, 
gambling, booze, lust, gluttony, jealousy, sloth and other deadly sins.  
Crying, bragging, moaning and shouting glory all to the tune 
of a syncopated guitar played with a strong right thumb 
measuring time with a steady thump. Step on in…
