“Creation” combines six original songs and four derivative works. The original songs include the country song, “A Beer at the Legion with You,” the darkly modal “Nemesis,” the character portrait “Michelangelo,” an adaptation of the Song of Solomon (“The Loveliest Song”), the light rock tune “The Treasury,” and the bluesy “Me & the Moon.”

The derived works include two R&B hits from the 1960s (“If You Can Want” and “Heard It Through the Grapevine”), an old folk saw (“Sow Took the Measles”), and the field holler “Nobody But the Baby.”
