Album Notes
Personnel: Peter Himmelman (vocals, guitar); Kristin Mooney (vocals); Greg Herzenach (guitar); Jeff Victor (keyboards, vocals); Al Wolovitch (bass); Andy Kamman (drums).Additional personnel: Mike Campbell (guitar, mandolin); Lisa Haley (fiddle, vocal); Ben Tench (harmonium, accordion); Phil Jones (percussion).All songs written by Peter Himmelman.Peter Himmelman followed his 1991 Epic debut the following year with Flown This Acid World. Don Smith came aboard to co-produce the album with Himmelman and Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench guest on two tracks. The title track, which Campbell and Tench appear on kicks the album in fine style. The guest Heartbreakers add some muscle to Himmelman's sound and his vocals sound more self-assured. "Beneath The Damage And The Dust" is one of his more pop melodies and features some searing guitar and soulful backing vocals from Kristin Moody. "Things To Say" is a wistful piano-based ballad with his usual high-caliber lyrics dealing with regret. The tour-de-force of the record, however, is the moving "Untitled," which closes the record. Nearly eight minutes long, the song details a cab ride with a racist cabbie who shares his views not realizing that his passenger is Jewish. The earnestness of Himmelman's delivery gives the lyric added poignancy. ~ Tom Demalon
