From the great northern plains of the Dakotas, east to the Twin Cities, straight down the Mississippi, stopping in Memphis, all the way to New Orleans, and back again...the true midwestern journey...roundtrip. No matter where you go, people aren't really that different are they? You've got the farmers, the office workers, the musicians, the politicians, and everywhere you go you find incredible souls. You also find love and hate and bad seeds. You find people who really wanna help you out, and you find people who couldn't care less whether you live or die. Then you find a few people who just wanna come along for the ride. It seems Joel Schaan has met them all....or at least all kinds. His songs speak to each and every one of them, from the girls he never really wanted to know...to the cowboys and the junkies...and the freaks on Bourbon Street..and the real players uptown..everyone has a story to tell. Let's hope someone is listening...YOU NEED THIS CD NOW!!
