about

Thank you to the Ford Family for providing their home as the location for this recording.

"Thomas Lowry built the house for his daughter’s wedding, back in 1926. The house still contains the prohibition era hidden liquor storage closets, bars, and private rooms that made it practical to illegally serve liquor! The grand staircase and huge party rooms still resonate with the society parties and rambunctious youthful gatherings that christened the house.

It was a more gracious era. The (huge) house had just two bedrooms and staff quarters for four. (Butler, driver, cook, maid.) The four car garage out back contained a bay which allowed easy access to underneath the car to do repairs.

The house is an interesting combination of the nostalgic storybook style with some of the emerging elements of the more streamlined interiors of the international style which reflects the rollicking, whimsical 1920s."

Track Name: Little Luvver
June 23rd, 1965. I take my first breath. I open up my small eyes. I had not yet realized, that I would always be a little luvver.
Track Name: Neo Acoustic Ambassador
So many good friends to be meeting, viscountesses and baronets. So many floors I'm bound to sleep on. Where the dreams I'm dreaming are of the scenes I shall be stealing!
Track Name: Allison
"I long to reflect the beauty that I see in my friends." Allison

I swore I'd never forget you, the things you said which made me laugh. But now I wouldn't doubt if you forget as they drift into our past.

Track Name: This Time
A warm spring day promises an early thaw. Put your galoshes away and the snow is sure to fall.
Track Name: Down at the Viking
Two more Leinies, one more Premium, it's better to laugh than cry. All those dangerous west bank women ignore us as they walk by.
Track Name: Volkswagon Vanagon
It's been proven, I'm never far from Fahrvergnügen with my hiking boots on wearing one big smile.
Track Name: I Had Learned...
When the bough breaks expectations must fall. And down will come baby, my whole world and all.
Track Name: Again
Let the poets pipe of love in their most didactic ways. I find I have nothing left to say, except...
