Six Rhetoricals & Four Metaphors
Album Notes: there are two things to be said about this CD. firstly, i must acknowledge my debt to blake's book, 'the marriage of heaven and hell' - which i read several years ago. The savor of our lyrics - in some obscure way - was suggested to me by him, though he used his for a different and most ingenious purpose. we have, with less originality but (i hope) equal propriety, transferred sibylline shadow into song. The second thing is this. i beg the listener to remember that these songs are fantasy. they do have - or we intended them to have - a moral. but the transmotal conditions are solely imaginative supposals; they are not even a guess or a speculation at what miss diana or i may actually think, feel or do. we intended them to be 'mokita' - from a papas new guinea language meaning, 'truth that we all know, but agree not to talk about'. as always, all the voices were executed to a conclusive detail by miss diana. i myself played the instruments, produced, arranged, engineered and recorded the whole lot at the ice creame factory. The songs are © mmviii jay worth & diana leigh allen USA, UK. published through prazin' music, bmi. if you want to contact us, here's how: go to drjaymissdiana.com and start clickin'. enjoy, dj.
