Odds & Ends

Artist: Chanty Boys
Year: 2014

Notes: Ken and I are old enough to collect Social Security now. Ain’t it great? On the other hand, we’ve already enjoyed the fruits of real, actual “social security” for several decades: Making and sharing music with friends. Public performance is fun, but better still are all the informal gatherings when music just gets made for the sheer joy of it. And if there’s something that more tightly knits a community of friends together over time than sharing music…I don’t know what it is. (OK, OK. Food is right up there too.) These songs are meant to represent that spirit. Mostly ‘back-of-the-refrigerator’ songs (you find ‘em when you finally clean up)…they’ve still got lots of flavor and life. Just like all leftovers. Hell, what am I saying—just like Ken and I. So here’s our Odds And Ends collection. Enjoy. Hope you’re hungry.

Thanks: We sound better than we have any right to expect only because Matt Sommers is a deft touch and a friggin’ genius. Thanks, Mr. Matt. Our cover art is by Holly Sommers. Thanks, Holly, for your creative eye.
