AMERICANA THE BEAUTIFUL, released in January of 2008, is a very powerful
and politically charged album full of GREAT new songs and older folk rock cover materials. The material and the arrangements
capture the very heartbeat and pulse of these important times.
SAVE OUR LAND is an anthemic song about global warming, a beautifully rendred and powerful ballad about the most important
issue of our time. You may listen for free, but when you purchase a copy. the profits go to help stop global warming.
I AM AN AMERICAN is a beautiful, yet important song that speaks of uniting the peoples of America, Christians and Jews, Muslims
and Hindu, Republican and Democrat. The familiar and highly singable melody (a bit like GOD BLESS AMERICA or GOD SAVE THE
QUEEN) is punctuated with poignant lyrics that celebrate our uniqueness and potential unity.
THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND is a GREAT version of the Woody Guthrie classic that features Guthrie's seldom heard original lyrics.
Guthrie borrowed the melody originally from a song by the Carter Family, then added lots of words that we no longer hear until
this version was made by THE FINTONS.
IT IS OUR RIGHT is another GREAT anthem extolling the freedom of choice for men and women everywhere. This rockish song is
punctuated with snippets of the actual voices of famous Americans speaking. Harry Truman leads off, followed by George Bush,
Franklin D. Roosevelt, John Kennedy and Martin Luther King.
