Order your copy today from Miles of Music, Atomic Twang or Village Records.

Listen to a song or sample. All files are in mp3 format.

Shot Down Guitar riff like John Lee Hooker on crystal meth, backed by Bonanza's merciless tom attack. Guess Tony should have received a lead vocal credit, too...sorry brother. [Download song]

Throwin' Your Life Away "I'll be the mascara on your wedding gown/A stain you just can't remove." [Listen to sample]

Everything Was Crooked Life during wartime in Cleveland, as seen through the eyes of my father and grandfather. Junking cars, raising chickens, hauling coal, hustling gas rations, and working the night shift in the woolen mills. Like Grandpa said, "Son they're cheatin' us more than we can ever cheat them." [Download song]

Yesterday's Clothes Lost luggage and misplaced innocence. [Listen to sample]

When I Had Your Love Smokey Robinson wrote this one for Marvin Gaye. Killer groove and a faux Asian guitar lick.  [Listen to sample]

Why I Run Forgive us, Rev. Green. How about Sheinin's keyboards, huh? [Listen to sample]

Cheatin' to Lose Every Barn Burners disc needs one flat-out honky-tonker. Thanks to Beltway Jay Filippone for the big twang. [Listen to sample]

Rockin' with Viola (at the Laundromat) I've been afraid to play this for Miss Viola. If she doesn't like it, I don't know where I'm going to do my laundry. [Download song in mp3 format]

Mud in My Eyes Paranoia, alcohol and indecision, but Paul's guitar really tells the story. [Listen to sample]

Said the 7 to the 11 The last deal gone down, fair or otherwise. Thanks to Jason Tinney for the lyrics and inspiration. With apologies to the Who for the bridge. [Listen to sample]

Moanin' the Blues Surf's up, Hank! Bonanza's bongo debut? [Listen to sample]
