Mostly True Stories
Mostly True Stories (1996) Bill Nash's first acoustic folk project, this album presents stories about his life that are all true... well, mostly! As mentioned in 'James Dean's Genes,' he had never driven a motorcycle - so the cover photo is an outright lie! :) Sparsely produced with only a few side musicians, these songs are all original and all very personal. Song list: Open Book, Gentle Winds, Expectations, House of Rhapsody, Melissa and Michael, Snow Day, James Dean's Genes, Along This Road, Carry On, The Folly of it All, The Time is too Short and Question. Quotes: 'I've been listening to the eloquent songs of Bill Nash for a long time now. He's one of those generous spirits that you can't forget... It's high time we got him down here at Anderson Fair!' -- quoted from Ken Gaines, host of the Songwriter's Night Showcase, Anderson Fair, Houston, TX '(Bill) has an amazing ability to create humor and sheer beauty from even his darkest memories... Even after two encore performances, it was obvious the crowd would have insisted on a third, had time permitted!' -- Jenny Wood, Dallas Folk Music Society newsletter.
