Dr. Zooms Lone Star Good Time Band on CD

Welcome to Dr. Zoom's world, where the British invasion meets Texas blues to create an eccentric work in this debut album from Fougerousse. This is music which exudes the faded splendor of a crumbling renaissance palace, filled with bittersweet memories, yet also a good place to party right now! Thoughtful songwriting, quirky guitar work, and intriguing vocal melodies and harmonies make this album a must for all living humans on the planet, except for rap fans, who will not like this at all. Beware! Close listening will reveal nuanced layers of hobo elegance and renegade charm, which can be dangerously addictive! Guitars and vocals: Richard Fougerousse Bass guitar and vocals: Tom Fougerousse All songs composed by Richard Fougerousse (except the lyrics for The Day is Done, which come from the poem of the same name by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow). Producer: Richard Fougerousse Recording engineer: Richard Fougerousse Photographer: Rosemary Fougerousse Mastering engineer: DRT, Peterborough, NH CD replication: Oasis Manufacturing, Sperryville, VA Graphic Design: Jorge Krüger Copyright 2004. All rights reserved. Influences: The Beatles, Jeff Beck, Byron Atkins, The Zombies, Jimmie Vaughan, Tom Holden, The Kinks, Eric Clapton, David Porier, The Yardbirds, Jimi Hendrix, Curly Smith, Johnny Winter, ZZ Top, Eric Johnson, Wes Montgomery, and medieval polyphony. Richard Fougerousse grew up in Texas, where he played professionally in rock bands around Austin and elsewhere in the 60's and 70's. Then he laid his axe aside to become a 'grown-up'. He had a business career for seventeen years, after which he went to grad school and became a History professor, which led him to his recent situation for twelve years as director of a European study abroad program located in a restored medieval monastery in the foothills of the Austrian Alps (about two hours west of Vienna). Now he is back in Texas, and glad of it! In December of 2002 Richard was in a car crash on an icy mountain road. Among other injuries, his left forearm was broken and had to have a metal bar put in it. His left hand and forearm were very weak and partially numb, and he was not doing his physical therapy as he should have done (it was boring and painful), so his wife Rosemary went out and bought him a Fender Strat, figuring that playing it would be good therapy for his left hand and forearm. So he got back into it after many years of not playing. It was indeed good therapy for his left hand, and this album is the result. Tom Fougerousse has been wielding the bass guitar with authority for some time, and has developed his own unique big bass sound, like the rumble of distant thunder, which provides the rock solid foundation for this music. So here it is; we hope you like it. Order your copy today and let the fun begin! Lyrics 1.

J.S. Bach J.S. Bach was born in Eisenach His parents died before he was ten One of his brothers brought him up He left home at age fifteen He lived a quiet life - and married his Maria When his first wife died he married for a second time Twenty-two children - twenty-two children - all in all Guitar solo He said, if you don't like Bach you must ask yourself this question Is there something wrong with his music Or is something wrong with you? Can't live without it - no doubt about it - at all J.S. Bach is a mystery - gave us all he had to give In all of human history - the greatest composer to ever live 5. Rosemary's Song Woke up yesterday morning - I was feeling mighty fine Look out on the brand new day - we got lots and lots of time I think you better come with me - I can make you feel alive There ain't nothin' gonna change the way - the way I feel inside Let the truth be known - I'm tired of livin' alone When we get to where we're goin' - we'll still be right here Don't you know - I'm talkin' 'bout now - you can forget about your fear What I'm tryin' to tell you girl - there ain't nothing we can't do Make no mistake about it - I'm gonna become one with you Let the truth be known - I'm tired of livin' alone Guitar solo Let the truth be known - I'm tired of livin' alone When we get to where we're goin' - we'll still be right here Don't you know - I'm talkin' 'bout now - you can forget about your fear What I'm tryin' to tell you girl - there ain't nothin' we can't do Make no mistake about it - I'm gonna become one with you 6. Texas I got to hightail it back to Texas Been away a long long time I got to hightail it back to Texas When I get there everything'll be fine I ain't got no money - ain't got no job My baby she's leavin' town Ain't no way that I can stay so far away from home You know this scene's just bringin' me down I got to hightail it back to Texas Been away a long long time I got to hightail it back to Texas When I get there everything'll be fine I came back from the eastern lands Carrying a bag of jewels I thought I'd make the big time as a travelin' man But all I found were Austrian rules I got to hightail it back to Texas Been away a long long time I got to hightail it back to Texas When I get there everything'll be fine Guitar solo I got to hightail it back to Texas Been away a long long time I got to hightail it back to Texas When I get there everything'll be fine I came back from the eastern lands Carrying a bag of jewels I thought I'd make the big time as a travelin' man But all I found were Austrian rules I got to hightail it back to Texas Been away a long long time I got to hightail it back to Texas When get there everything'll be fine 7. Down and Out in Austin I'm down and out in Austin - don't have a nickel to my name I'm down and out in Austin - and I don't give you the blame But since you left town baby - things just haven't been the same Well I never learned my lesson I never learned how to play the game Well I never learned my lesson I never found my fortune and my fame Oh you left town baby - and it's a cryin' shame Guitar solo I don't cry for what we were My tears are for what we became I don't cry for what we were My tears are fallin' just the same Oh since you left town baby Things just haven't been the same 8. The Day is Done The day is done and the darkness falls From the wings of night As a feather is wafted downward From an eagle in his flight I see the lights of the village gleam Through the rain and the mist And a feeling of sadness comes over me That I cannot resist A feeling of sadness and longing That is not akin to pain And resembles sorrow only As the mist resembles rain Come read to me some poem Some simple and heartfelt lay That will soothe this restless feeling And banish the thoughts of day Not from the grand old masters Not from the bard sublime Whose distant footsteps echo through The corridors of time Who through long days of labor And nights devoid of ease Still heard in his soul the music Of wonderful melodies Guitar solo Such songs have power to quiet The restless pulse of care And come like the benediction That follows after prayer Then read from the treasured volume The poem of your choice And lend to the rhyme of the poet The beauty of your voice And the night will be filled with music And the cares that infest the day Will fold their tents like the Arabs And as silently steal away 9. Can't Think of Anything but You I got bloodshot eyes and a nasty disposition Can't think of anything but you I can't sleep at night and I'm pretty much out of commission If you saw me you would think that I was beyond recognition Can't think of anything but you You gotta have mercy on a man in my condition Well you know that all I am is just an old time blues musician Can't think of anything but you I wanna play for you, but now I'm gonna have to audition Guitar solo I can't eat or sleep and I'm sufferin' from malnutrition Can't think of anything but you I hope you don't mind if I look for a good physician I got myself into this actin' of my own volition Can't think of anything but you You gotta understand I'm just following an old tradition 10. Judgement Blues Guitar solo Judge not that you be not judged Judge not that you be not judged For as you judge, so will you be judged And the measure with which you measure Will be measured out to you Guitar solo Why do you notice the mote in your brother's eye? But do not notice the beam in your own eye? How can you say to your brother Let me remove the mote from your eye? Guitar solo Judge not that you be not judged Judge not that you be not judged For as you judge, so will you be judged And the measure with which you measure Will be measured out to you Guitar solo 11.
