Hal was the drummer's drummer man! He was there all the time, but you probably never knew it, although you certainly heard him! He played percussion on records by The Beach Boys, The Mamas And Papas, Sonny & Cher. He was a BIG part of that famous 'Wall Of Sound' that made Phil Spector so famous! He even helped get Ol' Blue Eyes to his only No. 1 with his drumming on 'Strangers In The Night'! Album features terrific observations by noted writer and broadcaster, Austin Powell, and has great original artwork specially created for this unique release! Harkit. 2005.

An underappreciated album from an underappreciated band

"This is definitely the Sea and Cake's most varied album; the scope of the songs ranges from the light breezy "Parasol" to the uptempo "Nature Boy" to the album-ending rock-out "I Will Hold The Tea Bag." It's a bit of a departure from their usual latin jazz sound, and it's not as electronic as "The Fawn" or "One Bedroom," but I like the chances that the band took. As usual, the level of musicianship is top-notch all around, but I have to say that John McEntire's drumming is exceptional here. I would also recommend this album to a newcomer to The Sea and Cake, as it's a pretty good indicator of the range this band is capable of. If you like it, you'll probably like other albums that resemble certain songs. If you don't like it, there's a chance that another more cohesive and realized album would appeal to you more."

"I know some people may not agree with me, but I unskakeably regard Nassau as being the paramount work of The Sea and Cake. I stumbled across this CD and the band purely by chance. While walking through Reckless Records in Chicago I heard "Cantina" playing on the store sound system. I asked the girl the name of the band and have been happy I did so ever since. This was the first CD I ever heard from them and it is also the one I like the best.
They hit heights here most musicians can only hallucinate about. I would fix "Parasol", "The World is Against You," "Lamonts Lament," "Soft and Sleep," and "The Cantina" as being among their most endearing songs. The beauty of "Parasol" is something which caused me to reboot it up again and again in the time following my official purchase. You will not be disappointed."
