Wahoo! Finally, a record label with no talent benchmark, no business acumen, nor any regard whatsoever for listeners! When DSM and I heard about this, (thanks to Label KM), we knew we had to spend a few minutes planning what tracks we would record.

Truthfully, DSM showed no interest at all, which is his wont, but I forged ahead, spending the time it took to put the jug on, to come up with the following:

1. When You Wish You Were a Star

2. I Can’t Find Old Raine (written and sung by DSM)

3. She Was Out Wandering After Midnight

4. Lost in a Trance

5. One Befuddled Evening

6. Your Bones, My Bones, Them Stuffed Bones

7. Fooled Around and Fell in the Moss Pit

8. Someday My Pants Will Fit

9. It’s Not Easy Being Lean

10. I Got Stoned and I Pissed Myself

11. Never Close Your Eyes

12. When You Hear Nothing at All

13. My Horse Has Gone Lame

14. Sylvia’s Mother (Died)

15. I’ll Try to Remember You

16. Saturday Night I Had a Fever (featuring, ‘A Sign of the Times’)

17. I’ve Had Most of My Life

18. Lay Back in the Arms of the Mortician

19. You Make My Pants Want to Have a Nice Nap

20. Needles and Pills
