|Once upon a time I was a singer-songwriter en route to rock-pop stardom (see the naif on the right, above), but strange are the ways of fate and etc. I did have a solo album released by Elektra back in the day, and had songs of mine covered by Carly Simon and Judy Collins, among others. Today I apparently have a cult following in Japan. To the best of my knowledge, it's benign.|
A few years ago, I put together a CD of all the songs of mine that should have taken the world by storm, but inexplicably have been roundly ignored, the world being preoccupied with other stuff. Now it can be yours.
It's an eclectic collection, ranging from Storyman, a recent number about what it's like to read 10 scripts a week for a major studio, to the oldest song, Sons of Summer, a ballad that can also be found on Carly's album Playing Possum. You can hear a few songs from the CD on this jukebox:
