Richard's third full-length album is
a distillation of some sixty songs recorded over the past several
years in a variety of formats. He laid down tracks for many of the
tunes at his old stomping grounds, Soundscape Studios.
The cover photo by Nancy Leigh shows
Richard strolling down East 2nd Street, in front of the Marble Cemetary
near his East Village apartment in New York, a place he goes each
day to feed the local wildlife (pigeons, sparrows, crows, squirrels,
and assorted other birds).
Once again, Richard created a rock
band all by himself, with occasional appearances by guest musicians
Nancy Leigh on bass, Lez Warner on drums, Andy Resnick on guitar,
Dave Amels and Andy Burton on organ, and assorted string players
and back-up vocalists.
