One Last Try Tonight - Inspired by my bass guitar and The Beatles.
Thanks goes to Joe DiMattia, Ben Whitten and my lovely wife, Karen.
Tell Me What You Want To Hear - A dark song. A show tune? Possibly written for a villain to sing.
Time Will Tell - Written a few years back. It is totally redone here. New instrumentation, vocal, a new A minor chord, everything... Thanks goes to Ben Whitten for his multicolored guitar parts.
Superman Curl - An updated version of this song. New parts and mix. An up tempo tune. Thank you Karen Parker-Masarone for her backing vocals and Sam Luther for his artwork!
Stay By My Side - The first version of this song was written some time ago but it never sounded finished. So, I changed some chords, modified the chorus, added a bridge, and changed the arrangement. Finally, the song is completed.
One Day Off - Everybody can use one day off. Thank you Karen for tracking backups and adding that touch!
Douchebag - WARNING – This song contains somewhat strong language (based on some standards but not really). If you know a person like this I am very sorry but by all means, sing along as a cathartic exercise and you will feel better. Great thanks Karen for spending studio time, cutting great backing vocals and Ben for providing his guitar solos.
Climb! - My cousin told me that he and a buddy climbed to the summit of Grand Teton via the Owen Spalding trail. I went home and wrote down what I could remember about his adventure. This song is based on his trek but I think it is more about the human spirit.
Something Always Comes Along - Originally recorded on my 4-track cassette tape machine. What you are hearing are the original bass and acoustic guitar from the analog 4-track. I recorded new drums, vocals and an additional acoustic guitar.
Troop and Camo - Written one day in Cape May, NJ while Troop and Camo lay asleep at my feet. It came together rather easy as you might suspect. Thanks to Karen for harmonies and holding all those long notes! And, Ben who plays all of the electric guitars and makes this thing go!
Bird In The Hand - This is a song was written and recorded in the 90's. Some of the parts you are hearing were transferred from tape to digital. Thanks to Ben on wah-wah guitar solo and Guy Parker for helping me beef up the horns.
Don't Do It (Just Let It Go) - I had the idea for this one for about a year and a half. I fooled around with different lyrics throughout that time but I knew I wanted a mid '60s/Beatles/British Invasion type sound. Thanks to Karen on background vocals. A special thanks to Ben for his guitar work as he really locked into the vibe.
Hold Down The Melody - Hold Down The Melody is a song about writing a song. This is the album version (5:33). Actually a favorite of mine. Special thanks to Ben for awesome guitar work and Karen for her great job on backing vocals.
So Much Older - I found a long forgotten guitar, bass, and click track on my 4 track recorder from many years ago. I brought those parts into my computer and wrote some words and added the rest of the instrumentation.
Try It Again - I wrote this song for my beautiful wife, Karen. Uploaded on her birthday/our wedding anniversary (same day). Timing...
When I Met You - First song completed using a DAW. I have had no experience like the person in this song as he is much cooler. I would have called the police.
