    Is this album a joke?

    Sounds influenced by Stockhausen to me.

    I feel a Thomas Beecham moment coming on - when asked if he'd ever conducted Stockhausen he was reputed to have replied "No, but I've often stepped in it."

    This is actually a case where I don't want some of what he's smoking. Perhaps Mel Bay will publish the works.

    So, I guess there is some hope for me to produce and sell a CD of my mandolin music

    I think the person is having fun with the internet, kind of a farce, showing you can lay down tracks of almost anything, name them, but them into an "album" and price them. I bet the person makes money off this.

    Does the term "rip off" ring a bell, or a string?

    Made me smile, but I don't think I'll buy the album.

    As an artist, as in painting, I love the cover.

    OK, and since myself having the stroke in 06, and only able to play with my right hand now, mostly as a percussive chop in the open standard tune of the mando, mostly on "G" tunz, these tracks sound very familiar to my very first tries at playing before discovering I could keep up in a jam doing the percussive chops in G & D tunz, "I never lost my sense of timing". I was about ready to sell all my mandolins, guitars, and recording gear, but thankfully I just got drunk, and keep it all, sorry for the rant, Iam sober now on all fronts, thank you.

    February 1, eh? I think it was released precisely two months too early.

    Well now see, call me closed-minded, but I don't consider that bluegrass.

    The record label is listed as Cactus Breakfast Records, the googling of which reveals a bandcamp page with a whole series of these recordings: https://cactusbreakfastrecords.bandcamp.com/

    I listened to enough to know that this person is similarly "skilled" on his/her other instruments. ;-)

    Liking Jamie (Jamie Stanek?), the reviewer's comment: "mankind loses." Luna's right, it is sort of a statement that anyone can lay down anything, any track, anytime, and get it on a platform for sale. No money for him, but what kind of commentary is that on the new paradigm for music marketing? Too much junk out there!

    Similar comments were made about The Beatles. Just wait till he plays Shea Stadium or The Ed Sullivan Show. Then you too will be able to say 'I heard him on the Mandolin Cafe'

    Correct. That ain't no part of nuthin'. Hippie music.... no wait, I'm an old hippie.

    I try REALLY hard to never say anything negative about somebody who is seriously doing their best to express themselves musically, but I am finding it quite hard to believe that this is legit . . . but then again, sometimes I see the most ridiculous and hideous things hanging on the walls of art museums, so maybe this is supposed to be some sort of legitimate musical expression - but, quite frankly, I just don't get it. I had a hard time getting through the 30 second samples - I simply can't imagine sitting through some of the songs that were 5-8 minutes long!

    All I will say is that this album reminds me of a record label back in the 1950's called 'Horrible Records' that purposely released horrible songs . . . .

    Enough said.

    Fer' a while there, I thought someone recorded me.

    Then I realized I'm not that good.
