This album is self-explanatory...whatever that means!

Welcome to our first excursion into the world of folk music. We call it "Fractured Folk Songs," or "music to hoot your nanny by." To us, folk songs have always been like the New York Mets - we know they are here, but deep down in our hearts, who cares?

After much research and many sleepless days, we decided on a dozen of the mouldy old weepers, RCA Victor wanted twelve songs but we insisted on one dozen and they finally let us have our way. We seem to carry a tune like it's a burden, and for us it is.

Many great writers have contributed to this worthy cause, Don Bowman for one. While Don isn't exactly a Boudleaux Bryant, he also isn't a Harlan Howard! However he does write some very funny parodies and some day hope to get one of these. In the meantime we will carry on with two of his latest blown fuses in the switch box of success, namely "Jimmy Drinks Corn" and the very tender "Why Don't You Wash Your Feet." For the lovers of the modern school of folk music we came across a song that will live forever in saloons, taverns and upholstered sewers. This one is called "After the Hangovers Over." Also for the boozers is our rewrite on the traditional "Rye Whiskey."

We got the idea for our "I don't Give a Hoot (For the Nanny)" during one of the endless rehearsals for the popular "Hootenanny" TV show. We really like the show because it keeps us in a low income tax bracket. "Fractured Folk Song" has a certain nothing that adds to the general monotony of this longest of all long-play albums. To he key club holders of the world's most famous rabbit hutch we dedicate "The Playboy Song." The other songs are self-explanatory, whatever that means. We were thinking of changing our names for this album. Some of our thoughts were "The Old Crusty Minstrels," "The Hard Time Singers," the "Stupidity Singers," and the "Front Porch Minority." Anyway we decided to retain our identity to protect the innocent, whoever they are! So, dear fans, we urge you to postpone joining the Peace Corps until after you have listened to FRACTURED FOLK SONGS.
