Tab Tabscott - Behind The Barn-1995 CD and Cassette
Of the 18 cuts on this recording, 11 of them are originals. Topics run from environmental concerns to completely ridiculous themes. There is an ample dose of the serious, however. Check out "Remingtons Ride", "The Song For Ruth", or "Geez Louise". Tabscott invited over 20 of his friends to play on this project, and the results are worthwhile.
