The Jealous Sea
Concept Album in three parts - lyrical and introspective - originally conceived as a book with accompanying songs and drawings.  I later dropped the narrative and told the story using just songs I had written, and the accompanying drawings.  See also The Jealous Sea website.
first compiled: 1971 - last recording: 1987

Promise Me Nothing
Concept Album - a sort of a continuation of the lighthearted, live-for-today theme of The Jealous Sea - Part III - Smiles and Tears, but more playful in nature, and more direct, perhaps, less lyrical, in delivery.
first compiled: 1974 - last recording: 1987

Dreams and Realities
Concept Album (though more loosely connected) - at times harder and more raw, made up of divergent songs from both earlier and later than the previous two albums, Dreams and Realities, as its title suggests, explores the complex relationships -- hope and despair, freedom and slavery, life and death -- between these phenomena.
first compiled: 1975 - last recording: 1987

Renaissance
Over ten years passed without much music coming from me, but all that changed with a flurry of songs, loosely arranged into concept form, to make this eclectically-styled album, with song-genres ranging from old-time banjo to boogie, ragtime to disco, country-folk to pop-jazz.
first compiled: 1987 - Unfinished

Good-Time Music Sampler
A little more of a "live" feel - I did a bit of playing out during this time, and created this album, so I would have some home-made tapes to sell at gigs.  It includes some of the more popular songs I played, plus, from previous albums, a few of my own efforts, that had proven popular.

The ezFolk Sails
Karaoke happened; the gigs dried up, and my muse fled for warmer climes.  Another decade passed before I jumped on the internet, and uploaded Nova, my very first upload to ezFolk.  The warm and inviting ezFolk community bade my muse return, and spurred me to compose and/or record these songs during that time, before the 2011 ezFolk meltdown.
