This is the second collaboration doddster73 and I, have done. Sometimes my sense of humor gets the better of me and I find myself laughing at my own jokes. It makes me a cheap date. For myself.
Anyway, I have a feeling I may never top this, or live it down. I'm putting it out as a nod and a wink to this little data dump (spoken with much affection and reverance) that we all have grown so fond of. I've only been here two weeks, and it's already like a sickness. Oh well, I'll just have to medicate. This may be the last message you hear from me....
PS this one is a little genre buster, so it may need it's own category. ( like" get you in trouble songs" ) thanks for sharing......

doddster73, my hero, provided the music track, and such a cool vibe it is...
My son Dave is all the foreign languages, and Napolean,
and his little brother Joey is playing the guitar again...they're good boy's

the guitars have raised the bar for all of us, impeccable production--not too mention this is cracking me up to no end!

don't know if you;re familiar with "spaceman" by mc900ft jesus but there's some subtle but excellent vocal afinities

Just when I think that I've heard it all. This is truly wonderful and inspired. Apart from the genial humor and timing, the track is fantastic. The word will get out about this and hopefully PM99 will be lured out of hiding - the mastery of it all!!!

Wally,

As I listen to more of your tunes (and especially this one) I'm beginning to hear as much Frank Zappa in your music as Tom Waits.

And as I read other peoples comments I am noticing many of them remarking about your voice. Your voice is definately very good, and the perfect voice for the material you sing. But I suspect that the reason your voice sounds as good as it does on these recordings reflects not only your vocal technique, but some good recording and production as well. Perhaps at some point you would like to share with us how you record your voice.

Axé,

Brandinho

That's funny, and excellent, and all other superlatives! Such imagination and talent (and such a lot of free time!)

I am flattered to have earned a mention. Just a technical note, ssstebbe rhymes with "Debbie." As soon as my wife Diane and I got married (20 years ago), people she would meet would call her "Debbie," and not think twice about it. But hey, you can all call me John Stebbe.

Your sons are a real force on this track! Way to go, guys.

Thanks for your nods over at my list. Gave me a line to here. Otherwise, I might not have ever found your stuff ... this place is huge and I get to following along this path and then that trail and may never find my way out again. Who cares you, it's great getting lost in here!

Your voice is one fine tone machine - we have a guy who was famous for word tales here in Chicago named Ken Nordine, you heard Ken Nordine's ole radio show?

Your son, on the other hand, has THE tone - somewhere in between Larry Carlton and Jeff Skunk Baxter - makes me want to drink whiskey.

no doubt... one of the best perks arriving here @ icomp, is getting my hands on more of your material... the combiinationof your whimsical delivery and joeys guitar... make you a deadly combination...

a little on Joeys playing... I've heard several singers who can sing the notes but completely miss the song... It's much the same with your sons playing... some players can play the notes, but he plays that damn guitar every statement with an exclamation point... He's like an old seasoned soul on that thing..

Here's a few tips. Encourage your children to do whatever THEY want, providing it's not illegal or immoral. If they change their minds, and want to try something new, let them, and don't gripe about it. Try to have no expectations on them, and when they need your support, give it to them.

Assist in procuring the tools for their dreams, and provide them with the best you can. Not the cheapest, or the crappy student model, but the best you can afford.

Your children are a direct reflection of who you are, and if you're a dork......

I had to find this song again - so glad it's still here! I have this huge smile on my face as I listen to it, and all those folks here in this cafe are probably wondering what this guy over there with headphones is listening to that makes him laugh out loud every 30 seconds or so... this is a real rib-tickling classic. "He's not in China... I looked..," had me on the floor trying to catch my breath, I was laughing so hard. Thanks for brightening up my day... again!
