'If you stumble just be tongue and cheek.'

Amusing hep-croon beat and catchy kitsch scattery here from daddio Tony Adamo on his Mark Murphy homage, tasty spoken word monologues thrown in too, on 'Did Mark Murphy Believe In UFOs?'

Amid galloping guitar riffery from Jean C. Santalis, Adamo adapts Michael Franks' lyrics from 'Don’t Be Blue' itself containing a considerable amount of head space devoted to Murphy.

Just out. Puts a big fat grin on your face. (Photo of Tony Adamo, Ropeadope)
