7 The Two Monks and the Gross Slimy Monster - a Zen Peace Tale
Tall Tales, Whoppers and Lies was recorded live at the New England Folk Festival. It was originally supposed to be a bootleg recording. You remember those -- a few tracks in a cheapo sleeve sold for about $5? Well, it turned out that people would rather pay $15 for a CD in a box. Same CD... Anyway, a year went by, and I was back at the folk festival in the same room, and I set up the recording equipment in the same place and got another two tracks. Plus, I added the demo version of 'The Two Monks and the Gross Slimy Monster.' All this is a very long way of explaining why, when you order this CD you'll get SEVEN stories -- even though the back cover only lists five. Also, you should order this CD now. I don't know when it's going to be in print again. Or you can download it off the various CD Baby electronic affiliates. Anyway, Tall Tales is an excellent set of stories invigorated by the live energy. And if you're in Natick in April, come and see me at the New England Folk Festival!
