Gary Floater – Dust Off the Dulcimer (One More Time)

In songs on February 8, 2012 at 9:55 am

We return to the legend of Gary Floater, the fictitious songwriter created by Owen Temple and Adam Carroll, a phantom outlaw for whom they have thus far created two “tribute albums.” This one is awesome from the very start.

Within a few lines, we are taken into Grandpa’s living room and know the man well. Songs like this help reinforce the point that just because something is ostensibly a novelty tune, that approach has absolutely no bearing of the quality of craftsmanship.
