about

Lost Album of Thomas Cheeseburger Windsock demos. No date is known but the fidelity of the recordings hint at the late 70s or early 80s, presumably using a monophonic reel-to-reel or possibly a cassette tape recorder. These rough versions could be viewed as Windsock's "Pink Moon", bare but direct, undecorated, unembellished.

The songs on "Greatest Hits" deal with the usual Windsock material, love and loss, longing, alienation, etc. "Spanish Abandon" hints at the failed world tour that Windsock was to embark on upon the release of "All Over the World" in 1976 but that was cancelled due to total lack of sales before the first show (that was to take place in a bull ring in Madrid in the fall of that year). "Big Boulder" approaches the seemingly limitless obstacles between an artist and success, which must have been particularly hard for Windsock following the colossal failure of his first LP. He sings: "Big Boulder standing between me and my dreams. Big Boulder, why you gotta come down on me? But one day you'll break down into a little rock and I'll pick myself up and move along."
