'American Dawg,' the title song of Neal Gladstone's 2nd CD is a patriotic blues parody and a fan favorite (Audiences bark in anticipation when they hear the opening riff). 'Grapefruit in Your Life' is both a satire on foodies and a hymn to 'the perfect golden jewel, succulent and cool'. Both songs were recorded live in concert in Corvallis, Oregon. 'Officer Bradford' imagines a young girl's infatuation with the handsome cop who stops her for speeding. 'Little Piece of Plastic' celebrates the joys of condoms, as told by a nurse who clearly loves her work. 'Throat Man' is a rap parody about a doctor who knows 'every hole in your head'. Like all his work, this CD spans musical styles and moods, with a brooding ballad ('Dark Blue') about depression as well as a rocker (The Reaper) about the need for change before 'the whole damn thing could blow.' 'Well-crafted lyrics set in memorable melodies...' -The Oregonian.
