They Went On
Who's Afraid Of Richard Dreyfuss?(2012)
They Went On is: James Rioux--composition, production, piano, drums, keyboards, bass, guitar, trumpet, glockenspiel, noises, etc… Connie Cho plays viola on track 11 (Thank you, Connie, for playing in F# major and letting me mess with your beautiful tone). A special thanks to my wife Amanda for constant consultation and for playing vacuum on track 5. Many of her ideas can be heard here; the missteps that remain are my own. Note on track titles: Track 2 is credited to Mark DeCarteret and Amanda Rioux, track 5 to Amy Wright, track 7 to Chris Volpe, and track 10 to Dow Mossman (from his Novel, Stones of Summer). Thank you, also, to Ben Moulton, whose titles, although not inevitably used, inspired me throughout. Track 6 refers to the tattoos on my retired greyhound Duncan's ears. DNF is a greyhound track term meaning Did Not Finish. This one is for my departed companion, Teddy, an Italian greyhound also known as Professor Crumblebum, and dogs and their lovers everywhere.
