Dave Stauffer and the Corvettes © 2003 David William Stauffer and Stauf Ent., Inc. Musical theater selections of Rock n' Roll music from the seven Operas of Dave Stauffer's 'Sow Y'oats' screenplay series, featuring virtuoso lead singers backed by two to six-part harmonies along with guitars, keyboards and drums. Each human story in each song of the Sow Y'Oats! Album is taken from the dramatic story in one of the musical screenplays of Dave Stauffer's seven-movie screenplay series, "Sow Y'oats!" In the seven related movies, the same characters are followed from the age of six to their middle age in many dramatic, insightful, religious, romantic, and adult subplots. The seven screenplays incorporate about eighty original songs that Dave Stauffer has written and recorded. The plots have a lot to do with dating, maturing, and philosophy dealing with God-and so do the songs they sing. In several of the Sow Y'Oats! Songs, the singers speak their lines in or during the song, which adds a deep meaning to the words of the songs. By listening to the words and the mood of the music, each listener can feel the emotion of the dramatic event that the song describes in the screenplay. To write his songs, Dave Stauffer has drawn on his many years of singing, playing bass and guitar, and writing songs in several rock and roll bands that played for years in smoky bars and taverns. Along the way, he acquired a community of outstanding singers and musicians to record his harmonious songs. 1. Sow Y'Oats! (3:44) is the theme song for all of the movies. It describes the quandary for a young man contemplating marriage. He is attracted to a particular girl, but takes marriage seriously and worries about making a commitment for the rest of his life. The song features the young girl, who argues that he should choose her. 2. Gimme a Break (2:25) is in the second rock musical, 'The Snare'. It was written as the song that a bar band sings just before they take their 15-minute break, but it also applies to any situation where someone wants a break. 3. Cruisin' In My Corvette (4:53) is also in the second rock musical, and is about a young man cruisin' in his Corvette. The cruisin' in his Corvette is good enough just by itself without the need to be going anywhere in particular. Enjoying the cruise is kind of like dating a girl without any particular plans to go anywhere with her. 4. No More High School (3:16) is also in the second rock musical. It was written about a graduating high school senior that has mixed feelings about leaving his high school. 5. There's Just One Little Reason (2:46) is in the fourth rock musical, 'Wedded Bliss'. It is sung by the young husband on the morning after he had gone out by himself and left his young wife and their kids at home. In the morning, he must try to talk his wife out of leaving him. 6. I Lost It! (1:57) is also in the fourth rock musical. After an argument, his young wife has just told him to leave; he sings this song as he is walking down the street in disgust. 7. Bar, 1 a.m. (4:25) is in the last rock musical, 'The Last of the Oats'. The young husband is hanging out at a bar after he and his young wife have argued. He is attracted to a woman who is sitting at the other end of the bar and crying. He longs for her to come over to him, but he is afraid to actually go over to her. 8. You Can Have My Old Lady (2:42) is also in the last rock musical. The young husband tells his friend that he is finished with his young wife. You will have to see the ending of the movie to see if he actually leaves his wife. 9. The Guy Is Lieing (3:42) is also in 'The Last of the Oats'. In this song, the young wife confronts the other woman in the bathroom of the bar. 10. Bar, 2 a.m. (7:24) is the longer version of Bar, 1 a.m. It includes the best lead guitar duet to be played in the last ten years. All the songs are taken from the plots of the seven movies of Dave Stauffer's Sow Y'Oats! Screenplays. Each movie has at least ten original songs written and recorded by Dave Stauffer. All the songs have been performed and recorded by Dave Stauffer and various bands with a dozen different singers and musicians. All together, they form the most dramatic musical movie or musical theater production in ten years.
