Song Poem Hits of 2007
You have never heard anything like this, unless you are a collector of Song-Poems! Each of the first 21 songs began as a poem received by email, then set to music by the one-man-band of David Dubowski. It's all done from his home, with lots of real drums, guitar, bass, percussion, and an eight track multitrack digital recorder with only a smattering of drum machine. The sound is, well, hard to classify. Some are rockers, some are pop, one was made to sound like Hendrix and three were made to sound like the Fab Four. Tracks 1-21 started as poems from Michael Gregorovich, Jeff Richardson, Pete Bilderback, Gary Murtha, Peggy Plumley, Janet Jongeblood, Tony Vosik, Tony Downs and Cameo Castle, Anil Melnick, Paul Lundstrom, and Andrea Sullivan. Michael Gregorovich also wrote the music for Rich and Famous & Painting The Town. Then David Dubowski set them to music and the result is the classic song-poem sound. They differ from historic song-poems in that much care and time was taken to make them as good as possible, even though they were all recorded at home. Amyy Keith gives some nice female vocals on several of these little gems. And there are three non-songpoem bonus tracks at the end, one from the ancient pre-digital days of 1985. No matter what, song-poems are the most unusual genre of music history. Packed with 73 minutes of fun! A reviewer on Amazon said that track 7, Corduroy Fondue, was one of the best songs he had ever heard!
