Subject: Jeff Warner's New CD now available
From: GUEST,BB
Date: 02 Sep 05 - 04:55 PM

At last! Jeff Warner has thought about, worked on, recorded, and ultimately had printed/pressed a new solo recording. It's called Jolly Tinker, and is out on his own new label, Gumstump Records. Delivery was just yesterday, here in Portsmouth, NH, so I encourage all interested parties, and all curious parties, too, to visit his website and check out the information there.

Though Jeff is working as a solo performer these days, and it's technically a solo album, he's hauled out the New England talent for this one. Assisting on fiddle is Rodney Miller, of Airdance, and on mandolin and bouzouki, David Surrette, of the same band. Bob Webb joins on some banjo duets (now THERE'S excitement!) and McCann duet concertina. Jacqueline Schwab, who is so well-known from her work with Ken Burns, plays piano on two cuts. Jeff's good friends Bruce MacIntyre and Barbara Benn (me) help out on harmony vocals, and the title track, recorded in 1993, has on it both Jeff Davis and Micah Solomon of Oasis Duplication.

Links below. In brief, go to the website (www.jeffwarner.com), click on Sounds to hear little 30-45 sec. mp3s of some of the new songs, or click on Sales to see the cover art and read a small blurb about the album. All his other available work is there, too.

At the sales page, under the album blurb is a link to all the song lyrics in that album. So you can see there what the songs are.
At the bottom of the sales page is a link to the order form, if you want to mail that in.

Currently, this new CD is only available through Jeff, in person, or via the website. He's getting a PayPal account, so in a couple of weeks, he will be able to take orders from countries other than the US, but right now, it's US$ only.

So, start sending in your hard-earned ducats, because "with a wife and 16 half-starved kids" (see Baldheaded End of the Broom), Jeff can really use the cash!

I'm glad Barbara already started this thread -- otherwise I'd have to do it.

I acquired a copy last night and listened to it driving home from the Press Room in Portsmouth, NH to the ol' homestead in Nottingham. Didn't quite make it to the end on the drive, so, despite gas being at $3.09/gal. I sat in the driveway for a few more minutes to listen to the rest of "Yucky Bugs" (otherwise know as the Bug Squashing Party song) and scroll through the rest of the cuts to reassure myself that "Mandalay" was indeed on it. (Bellamy tune, of course.)

This is what I'm going to be listening to mostly for quite some time (even though I'm fortunate enough to hear Jeff in person most weeks). Wonderful listening, singing along, etc. AND it solves my holiday gift giving problems.

Nice mix of songs, Jeff's voice is a joy to listen to and his backup musicians and vocalists are skilled and above all TASTEFUL and enhance Jeff's already wonderful performance.

I heard cuts on the radio a couple of months ago. Jeff is so incredibly good at finding really interesting traditional songs and then presenting them in a way that makes them sound unique and completely natural at the same time. Hard to explain what the heck I mean. I look forward to getting a copy soon. Sooner than all those folk in the UK, anyway (hehehe). See other link in Desert Dancer's post for tour info.

All of which would be great, Tom, except my first stinkin' blickie for Jeff's website didn't function. So do go to my SECOND post (third one in this thread) for the REAL link to Jeff Warner's website.

And just to answer Desert Dancer - the post that is already up is about his tour in the UK. Yes, it mentions the CD, but I wanted a CD-only thread. So many folks choose their threads by the titles, I wanted the CD availability to be of prime importance. After all, it IS my business to make this guy some money! And when the tour is over, the CD will still be for sale!!!!!

Thanks, Linn, for the review. Somebody should hire you for these things!

Hey Barbara - your first post blickie does work now. Perhaps some kind mudelf...
It's a good bet some MudElf fixed the link. A MudElf who doesn't have a Jeff CD. A MudElf who will have a CD if the Goddess of Bats is allowed to buy one for her, because this Elf works her fingers right down to the...er, skin, to make the world safe for clickies. Just to prove it:

Jeff's CD is just what I need to listen to on the drive home from work.

(And I can get away with singing along with stuff not in my key because no one else can hear me!)

I got to listen to my copy of this CD twice as I drove back from the Portsmouth Maritime Festival. "Too bad the road isn't longer," was my thought as I pulled into my drive.

Jeff Warner has done a brilliant job of selecting and performing the songs, and arranging them so that one never knows what to expect next.

"River Driving" as the first track riveted my attention, and the final track "Mandalay" I could listen to forever. But then there's "The Little Black Train" lying in wait, as if ambush, just as you're just beginning to relax. What a splendid musical arrangement for "The Shanty Boy Comes Down"! And there is the haunting and uncompromising "The Southern Girl's Reply." And I love Barbara Benn's backup vocals. And, yes, Bruce MacIntyre's backup vocals are also outstanding! "The Bonney Bay of Biscay-O" and "The Jolly Tinker" are old favorites of mine from the Warner collection and it's nice to hear another rendition of them. "Only a Soldier" I was not familar with but what a story, and it didn't end up with the total slaughter I was expecting! "The Bold Privateer" reminds me of "Handsome Molly", another sea song successfully transplanted into the Southern Appalachians. And special thanks to Jeff for composing an extra verse to "Come Take a Trip in My Airship."

That's it for now!

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Sure am looking forward to this CD. Jeff is a breath of fresh air in that he is carrying on the legacy of the folksinger the way that good appellation was meant to be ascribed and utilized. And the songs he chooses, both his family songs and the ones he finds and unearths, have great tunes and tales. Thanks for letting me know about this!!

Indeed. I spent money that should have gone into my gas tank to buy this CD. Well worth it, even if I have to walk everywhere for a while!
