Captain Island - for my friend on an island

Good evening,

In past years I've written a lot of songs about water, boats, islands, oceans...I guess part of me identifies with pirates, ship captains, islanders, vikings...who knows...

I never realize when I record music that at some point it can all be compiled to create a concept "album", but it would seem that has occurred a few times now. SS-MOPEHEAD (here) is no exception.
"From the land of Yarn comes the tale of Captain Sinkwright, Sleepy Pete Ocean Sheep, and the Fish. This 14 song CD tells of the Captain's relentless search for the Fish and of his love for the Ocean Sheep...".
One of the "more accessible tracks on the CD is an instrumental called "Captain Island"...and since Jay is now "stationed" in the Philippines I figure this is as good a track as any to post tonight.  I hope this track takes you far away to a place where coconut trees take you away.

This quirky disc is fun to listen to when "normal" music is just not enough...PLUS you should venture out and try a little strangeness now and again.  Yeah?  Good.
