“Home – Breaker Novogratz”
Date: January 31, 2021
“From the 1990 album “Third World Warrior”. In later versions Kris changed lyrics of the spoken part to “Bombin’ Baghdad back into the stone age, ’round the clock non-stop for 40 days, killed ’em in their homes and on their highways. Now after a decade of cripplin’ sanctions we’re talkin’ about goin’ back in there and doin’ it all over again, fightin’ terrorism.”

“The theme song that was released as a single by Alan Thicke in ’84, for his TV show Thicke Of The Night (1983-1984). Written by David Foster, Jay Graydon & Alan Thicke.”
It’s a real shame this song has not been given a modern day release.
Great lost gem from the 80’s.

I’m releasing this one a little bit early…but late November isn’t “too early”…
I still have to get the video exhibition put together for this one, at the time of this writing…I’m confident I’ll have it done by early December.
I should point out…this album was actually started just shortly after completion of “Yule in Strings”…But it got shelved for a long, long time…And I had a collection of tracks I wasn’t entirely pleased with…I pruned a few of those away, and probably should have taken at least one other out…but…I’m pleased with what is here.
I was beginning to wonder if I’d have this completed by Yule time…I’m happy to put out another alternative version [a la “Yule in Strings”] of this series…but, I’d been promising the third installment for at least a year now…so, I needed to get this done.
Unfortunately, as happens sometimes when a project gets shelved…sometimes you forget what you was doing, and you wander off the path a bit…and there are two different styles of track on this album…Several are of a more typical acoustic piano…and all the rest are “Baby Grand”…and the difference is obvious…I wanted to keep these albums as uniform as possible…Guess I didn’t.
I trust this will hinder no ones enjoyment of the album.
As to this series of albums…I set out to make a trilogy, and this is the third…
…Of course, there’s lots to do with alternate versions of the music already covered…I expect a second “Yule in Strings” at some point…and an orchestral album…plus a church organ album…If I can come up with something I find release worthy…I may even play around with the choir synthesizer…and I’ve got a few nice tracks with the Celtic harp…a few other synthesizers I’ve never even tried, are just waiting for me…
…I’ve got some stragglers, however…I don’t think I’m going to release most of the tracks I’ve pulled [over not liking how they turned out]…but I’ve still got some material I haven’t even loaded up yet, to see what I can do with it…There’s still a bit of fertile ground to dance upon…
…Which means there might be a small “encore” album, in the future…I make no promises…
…except that I’ll rummage through what I already have on hand, and see how many albums I can make of them…They’ll likely be small…like, ten or so tracks…But I’ll be releasing things, well into the future…
…And I’ll get back to my regular albums, too.

This might be the first time I’ve ever seen the entire double video…
Great video…phenomenal artist…If you don’t know who Tony Carey [aka Planet P Project] is, you are truly missing out.
He is criminally underrated, and “unknown”…when he should be in the Rock n Roll hall of fame.
As a bonus, he offers three of his more recent Planet P Project albums [the “Go Out Dancing” trilogy] for free download, on his official website.
Note: I kept running in a problem with the download website, where nothing would happen when I clicked the “download” button…After reloading each page, it worked…Just thought I’d pass that along.

Note: It seems everytime I do something especially big, there is always a gremlin in the system presenting itself. At the time of this posting [December 01, 2015], the native WordPress media player is behaving in ways it’s not supposed to. Now I’m even noticing that it sometimes isn’t playing the correct track. It might be best to just skip to the bottom of this post, and follow those directions. Hopefully, they fix this soon. Oh!…as a practical word of advice wherever media is concerned, it doesn’t hurt to load up the specific post, where media is embedded.

This is my second holiday album. I hope you enjoy it.
At the time I am posting this, the wordpress audio player has been acting strangely, and going on to play audio tracks it’s not supposed to play. I’m hoping they’ll have this fixed, by the time this album gets posted. If not, it may be more practical to find the holiday playlist, way down on the right side of this blog. You can listen to both albums, one after the other…and just let it play on it’s own. Or you can pick specific tracks to listen to.
The holiday playlist will only be available during the holiday season.

Great Rights! [22:51]
02) Heart of Gold (E-Piano-Smooth)
05) Sweet Dreams [acoustic guitar]
“Great Rights!” is my eighth musical album. At 22 minutes and 51 seconds, it’s tending towards the shorter of my albums…but there is still some good stuff here. I confess, that I padded this one with a few tracks I was not going to release…but later figured, why not?
Exorable – A nice track…jazz…Not really a personal favorite, but it works as a song.
Heart of Gold (E-Piano-Smooth) – A highlight…This one turned out really nice.
Gadabout – Glorified bumper music, honestly…but it’s pretty cool.
Angularity – Nice…Not really deep…but slow and haunting…
Sweet Dreams [acoustic guitar] – Another highlight, and a personal favorite.
Neo – Rescued from a “warehouse” folder, where it was likely to be forgotten…I have to admit, this one is actually pretty decent.
Generations – The most “iffy” track here…Mixing the different genres like this, was experimental…very. I didn’t intend to release this, ever…But it’s kind of cool…and this collection needed some padding…A good track to bring things to an end, I think.

01) Beauty and the Beast [brass]
03) Brass Dance
04) Paphian Tyro
05) Play With Me
06) Rock On
07) BXI [church organ]
Ride The Dragon, my third album, has a run time that comes in a little under 17 minutes, at sixteen minutes an fifty six seconds. Short, but there are some nice things in this collection.
Beauty and the Beast [brass] – Very nice version of a great song. New release!
Jam01 – Glorified bumper music…but really cool.
Brass Dance – Nice compilation. New release!
Paphian Tyro – This one is cool. I released it earlier, on this blog.
Play With Me – Great jam. An early track of mine. It’s been out there for some time.
Rock On – More glorified bumper music…but really cool.
BXI [church organ] – A favorite. I love church organ music, which is why these kinds of recordings show up in my music. I believe this is the debut of BXI. New release!
