August 2001 saw the beginning of this album-Five Score, the "100 Song Album."

I started with a notebook of two and a half pages of song titles, and as I wrote and recorded the songs I checked them off in the notebook. My original vision was to have a three CD set of 100 maximum length 2:48 second songs. This has changed, however, and it is a 4 CD set with 25 songs on each disc.

I have opted to include a few previoulsy recorded, but at the time homeless songs on the 100 song CD. Those songs are:

1. We Can Linger
2. God is Shaking Up the World (Recorded in Galax)

I recorded a few songs written in years past that had never seen the light of day, and recorded songs written in years past that have never been recorded. I also solicited my music-making friends for collaborations and contributions, and their efforts were fantastic.

Prabir Mehta of the Rachel Nevadas stepped up to the plate with a song written for the CD, and he played guitar on 2 other songs. Lewis Harris from Pent-Up House and Bucket contributed a fantastic song that I sang over, Menaflower unwittingly contributed an outtake from their new CD, Monty Jones let me cover a song he had already recorded as The Ukulele Hipster Kings, Greg Garner from Music for Viola handed me an unfinished guitar and drum thing he had that I added words and keyboards to, Jenny Jussell sang with me on a few songs, Dave McCormack played guitar, bass, and dobro on a few, Tom McCormack sang one for me, Hunter Boxley played drums on one, Mike McCormack of the Waking Hours contributed a guitar progression I turned into a song, as well as a drum line I did the same thing to.

This thing has kept me going over the past six months, and I hope everyone that gets one finds something they like on it.
