Andy Smith, “Songs From Wonderful Land”

My friend Andy Smith recorded this album of songs called “Songs From Wonderful Land”. It’s available here for free and i think it’s definitely worth listening to.

This is what he has to say about it:

“‘Wonderful Land’ is a collection of songs I recorded in the year 2009. I wrote most of them on school bus #7544 before my afternoon route as a way to pass the time, which in retrospect seems to have been an effective approach. In fact, I would recommend that anyone who is bored during a lunch break should imagine a fantasy band to pass the time.

These can be had in one of two ways: 1) You can download them to your personal computer or… 2) You can request a VHS copy for $100 (alternately, if you supply the tape I will make a copy for $0).”
