Jim has come back to us with two unique concepts at one time, The Planet Frank (starring The Elders) and The Chet Lambert Show, which contains his most beautiful composition to date, “By Inches.” Both The Planet Frank and The Chet Lambert Show is no less unusual than his debut, if you are looking for Barry Manilow singing Cole Porter at a grand piano sitting on the inner rings of Saturn, with Fleet Foxes on backing vocals, you may be in the right place. "Eccentric, fascinating, diverse and wacky to the smallest detail," Patrick Bruneel, Gonzo Circ
$9.00–$9.99“We Are All Famous is pop eclecticism at its very best. If music is a game, We Are All Famous is a practical game piece and Jim Of Seattle is a very spirited player. Others may give up on the game due to exhaustion, but Jim Of Seattle is not in it to win it, but merely to play for the spirit of playing. For that, he is a gold medal winner.” John Book “From the carnival intro of Overture through the folk/psych and sixties farfisa rock of Everybody Now to the Oingo-Boingo-ish deviltry of Laboratory Rat, this album begs a complete listen. Give it one and you get equal parts fringe rock with classical interludes and the occasional cross between glee club and Hi-Los which practically sounds like recordings from a monastery. The small compositions, for they are worthy of that designation, fade in and out seamlessly, the distance between one and the next timed to perfection.” Frank Gutch Jr.
It is that time of year again, and, shock o’ shocks, this is the 4th annual GMR Xmas album. Read about it and listen here. Using that inspiration we have titled it “Frothing the ‘Nog: Ye 4th Green Monkey Xmas.” I don’t know that when I started GMR back up 3 and a half years ago if I thought I would be do it this long. But here we are and I expect to do it again next year. As usual it was done with minimal planning – at October 1, I really had no idea what will show up – Howie and I just put out the word and waited to see what appeared. This year we have a prime bunch, a couple mouldy figs, but mostly fresh and Christmassy made just for you this year. I think it’s great and I know you will too!
