Peter Mayer's pre-Buffett LP

"Pretty fair album - more commercial-sounding than some of Peter Mayer's later albums, but obviously pretty well put together. Sounds a whole lot sonically like Jimmy Buffett's "Off to See the Lizard" album. This is no surprise, since it's the same rhythm section and producer, just a few months shy of Elliot Scheiner's suggestion that Jimmy use PM as his band for the album. The lyrics aren't quite as interesting as later Mayer efforts, but the music sounds good, for the most part. Sheryl Crow makes a couple of pre-famous appearances on backing vox. Note: the CD has two extra tracks - "Grown Men" and "I Live in a Hole" - that weren't on the LP and aren't listed here. The best songs are on the LP, IMHO, but it's not exactly cheap or easy to come by, either."
