Made in the Granite State
Released on December 10, 2010, this CD is flying off the shelves! It contains 13 more “New Hampshire flavored songs” to capture the imagination of natives, transplants and tourists alike, such as:
Sunny Summer Sunday, about a couple out for a quiet day of adventure.
Old Friends. We all need them. And Jim has his.
Driving My SUV. It's New Hampshire, it's winter, it's a driver from "away." Need we say more?
A Summer Stroll takes you on an evening walk along a country road, celebrating all that is good about the New Hampshire countryside.
First In The Nation. We hold the first Presidential Primary in New Hampshire. It's been that way since the 50's and it won't change. Nope.
The Parable of the Peach. A dandy little song, with a bit of a moral.
A Stranger In My Home Town. New Hampshire is changing, as one man learns when he comes home for a visit.
Satisfy My Mind. When you get to a certain time of life, it's what you need to do.
Afghanistan. A song about our nation's misadventures in that far away land.
Cranky Old Yankee (Part I). So many of the old timers in New Hampshire have something to say about just about everything.
Homecoming. A brave New Hampshire soldier returns from war.
Everybody's Gotta Be From Somewhere reminds us of how the population of New Hampshire has changed and how we all need to go with the flow.
Bringing It All Back Home. When the traveling is done, New Hampshire is the place to come home to.
