Tom Beaulieu, “The Song Circle Dog”
This CD is spectacular! It’s a mixture of spoken word poetry and mellow singing/guitar. #2 stands out as having more of a danceable groove. #5 is almost a funk sound. TRY THEM ALL. KZSU has other stuff from him. CHECK IT OUT.
*1. Spoken word by Mary Vaeni, some musical backing
*2. Slow - Starts as spoken word in Santa Cruz, ends with Grateful Dead-esque jam
*3. Slow - Kum ba ya, acoustic, like lullaby
*4. Slow - Mary Vaeni’s poetry about Grandpa’s camp to gentle guitar
*5. Slow/Med - Fun take on familiar tune
