Product Notes

Rick Harrington's debut album will leave you anything but bored. This eclectic assortment of well-crafted and superbly performed songs covers nearly all the musical bases. The title song, 'You Can't Just Sit There,' is a folk-rock portrayal of the true-life adventure of Larry Walters (the man who one day decided to see if he could be lifted by a host of weather balloons tied to his lawn chair). 'Ain't Life Grand' is a fun blues-rock tune about being content whatever your circumstances. Emily's bluesy vocals and Rick's lead guitar really stand out on this one. Steel guitar and mandolin are featured in 'Bertram Harris,' a kind of new grass/country/jam song addressing the cruel consequences and regrets of a life of addiction. 'Sleeveless' is a rock-jazz portrayal of the tragic pride and carelessness of youth. This song features some excellent saxophone and conga playing as well as a very strong vocal performance by Emily Truncellito. The 'Tractor Song' is an amusing, pure country, statement of the reliability of a tractor over a woman. The steel guitar work is a real highlight on this track. 'Mister Smooth' is an instrumental, smooth jazz piece showcasing some impressive saxophone, guitar and piano interplay. 'Reach for Me' is a delicate love song, assisted by subtle finger-picking guitar and tasteful piano. 'Midnight Highway' is a driving rock song featuring some tight breaks and nice lead guitar work. Inspired by the Biblical book, Ecclesiastes, 'What About You' is an acoustic, piano-featured song pondering the nature and meaning of life. 'The Love of Many' is a beautifully written arrangement of acoustic guitar, cello and piano telling a heart-warming story of adoption. The delicate finger-picking guitar and cello on 'Daddy's Love' appropriately assist in telling of the helplessness a parent can feel in a cruel and unpredictable world. Emily's sweet vocals in a 'Place so Still' beautifully express the vivid picture of an abandoned farm and the profound reality it brings to light. This entire album is well worth a listen.
