Product Notes

Hi! Monty Harper here. I'll be your tour guide for a track by track look at this CD. You might like to click the 'play all' link to the left and listen while you read... This CD includes five mystery songs, recorded for the 2007 Collaborative Summer Library Program, and five Oklahoma songs, written for our state centennial in November 2007. Track 1. If you've ever wondered what it would sound like for me to front the ScribbleMonster band - and really who hasn't? - the opening track will answer that question for you. The arrangement and instruments for 'Get a Clue' were done by ScribbleMonster. Very cool! Track 2. Similarly, the arrangement and instruments for 'Can You Guess?' were done by Mr. Billy. You can hear his kids' voices and my daughter's voice on this one as well. Both these opening tracks truly ROCK!! Track 3. 'Hanging Out With Heroes at the Library, Detectives Version' is an old song which I gave a facelift with new drum tracks and some new verses. Track 4. 'Junior Detectives Club' is an old song I dusted off from the last time Oklahoma had a mystery theme. The recording is simple but charming - picture a meeting of the Junior Detectives Club, opening with a song. The piano and voices were done by Stillwater's own Rana McCoy and her Center Stage Singers. Track 5. 'There's Something Going On at the Library' is another old track with a face lift. I never was happy with the vocal from the original version. Now I am. The instruments are shinier, too. Track 6. 'Boom Town' is an energetic (in more ways than one) kick-off for the Oklahoma half of the CD. This song captures the excitement of the oil boom in 1920s Oklahoma. Track 7. 'Oklahoma Land Rush, 1889' is a fun song to do live with audience participation. This is a simple vocal/guitar rendition. Track 8. 'Oklahoma Heroes at the Library' - Yep, two versions of the same song on one CD. This is a 'live' version with verses about real life Oklahoma heroes. Track 9. I wrote and recorded 'Oklahoma Annie' with my six year old daughter, Evalyn. This was a true collaboration between the two of us, and it's one of my favorites on the CD. It tells the story of a super hero pony named Annie! Track 10. 'Oklahoma Kids, a Kaleidoscope' is my dad's favorite track. I challenged myself to write a song with that title, since it is the theme for Oklahoma's reading program. My friend Mr. Billy calls the style 'Monty Dylan.' I hope you've enjoyed our little tour! Please note that if you purchase two or more copies, the price per CD comes down to only $9. And you still get a Free Prize Two CD with every copy! Thanks for checking it out! - Monty.
