    "I Want To Ta Ta You Babe" is a Johnny Guitar Watson song. My dad was friends with Johnny and was also inspired by his musicianship. I think we only played this song 4-5 times while touring in Europe in 2016.

    Mikki Hommel sings lead vocals.

    "The Black Page #1 & 2 FAST" - This rendition was performed in 2019 in Denver Colorado. It includes a special percussion instrument called the "Marvin." You can hear it distorting and clanging around during "The Black Page #1." After that we played "Black Page #2" really fast!

    "Florentine Pogen" premiere arrangement from 1974. This is the first arrangement my dad ever did of 'Flo Po' and I love the pounding energy it exudes. During the guitar solo on this particular performance, you can almost hear an inner dialogue in my mind, saying something like, "Play something like your dad, now do your own thing, now have some fun and say hi to Ed."

    You'll know it when you hear it! "FLO PO EVH," is my mini tribute today to my friend Edward Van Halen.

    "Directly From My Heart To You"

    The track appeared on the 'Weasels Ripped My Flesh' album and featured Don "Sugarcane" Harris on electric violin. I was trying to create a balance between a guitar sound and an electric violin sound on this live version from 2018. I have some versions where I use the guitar sound only. I may find one and upload that for comparison.

    "Ship Arriving Too Late To Save A Drowning Witch" is one of my dad's most challenging songs to perform. The original release from the album of the same name included multiple edits from different performances and even different bands, in order to create the version my dad thought, was acceptable for release. It's quite a strange combination of elements and features 2 guitars solos. The instrumental interludes are at times quite wicked, especially on guitar and keyboards.

    The version I've released is from a live performance outside Chicago in 2018. I've done my best to recreate the dynaflanger guitar tones that were heard on the original version. Also, during my first solo, my guitar rig goes rogue and you can hear the delay buffer freak out. Instead of stopping the performance, I tried to play with it and do a call and response. You will hear a sort of degraded robot sound that appears randomly. I tried to react to it musically after each oddball utterance. It's a unique moment in time that could never happen again.

    There's also an absolutely evil fuzz tone on the second solo. I really enjoyed playing this song on tour and there were quite a few epic musical moments that happened every time we played it.

    I want to mix a version in ATMOS one day.

    "Drowning Witch"

    There's a ship arriving too late
    To save a drowning witch
    She was swimmin' along
    Tryin' to keep a date
    With a Merchant Marine
    Who told her he was really rich
    But it doesn't matter no more...
    She's on the ocean floor
    'N the water's all green down there
    'N it's not very clean down there
    'N water snakes
    'N rusty wrecks
    Is all that she can see
    As the light goes dim
    And she's tryin' to swim
    Will she make it?
    (Boy, we sure hope so...)

    Not even a witch oughta be caughrt
    On the bottom of America's spew-infested
    Waterways, hey-hey...
    She could get radiation all over her
    She could mutate insanely...
    She could mutate insanely... (that's right)
    She could go on the freeway and grow up to be 15 feet tall
    And scary-lookin'
    And then...
    Cars could crash all over the place
    As a result of people with Hawaiian shirts on...
    Lookin' up to see her face

    Sardines in her eyebrows...
    Lobsters up 'n down her forehead
    All of them HORRIBLY LARGE FROM RADIATION ...
    And smelling very bad
    And DANGEROUS!

    Maybe a submarine could save her,
    And bring her home to the Navy...
    For some kind of ritual sacrifice...

I have a stroke about 5 months. I listened for the first time since Dec 2020. The songs went to only Keep It Greasey. The other songs were amazing. Loved Willie the Pimp, Pojama People, Eat That Question, and Muffin Man. They made my day. Look forward seeing  you in San Francisco when you tour again.
