“Me & the Moon” is a set of ten songs, two of them original, the rest culled from American musical tradition. “Me & the Moon” is a light jazz number. “The Girl I Left Behind” is a familiar old ballad: the young man wants to roust a bit before he marries, but his intended is not so patient, and marries somebody else.

“Casey Jones” is the story of an engineer whose desire to deliver the mail on time overrides safety concerns. “Oh, Death” is a dark ballad from Dock Boggs, in which an old man pleads for his life. “Family Guest Room” is an original country song, about returning to the family home after some years of rousting. “I Want Some of Your Pie” is an early blues-jazz tune from the repertoire of Blind Boy Fuller.

“Old Ties” is my adaptation of an Uncle Dave Macon song. “Country Blues” again comes from the work of Doc Boggs. “Whoopee Ti Yi Yo” is my a capella interpretation of an old cowboy song. “Going Up the Country” is my rendition of an early blues tune by Robert Hicks, known to the music world as Barbecue Bob.

Dean Rathje: vocals, guitar, banjo, dobro, bass.
