Too Sad To Cry
The garden of love is thick with thorns...beware...
Are You (A Believer)?
3 May, 2008 - BRAND NEW TODAY - wrote this and recorded it this very morning. A song about the worst kind of hypocrites...started off calling this "Are YOU?" Trying the new title on for size.
Ukulele Odyssey (Take 1)
13 May, 2008: Written and recorded after blogging here this morning (see my blog "Sing to me, O Muse...")
Little Old Man (starring M. Ace)
Hugo engineers the drum/percussion work and plays only "crockery percussion" on this one - writing, singing and guitar playing by M. Ace (see www.ookworld.com) and drums (and maybe some crockery) by Dean Sabatino.
Don't Hide Your Love (Live Duet with Dick Aven)
6 July, 2008: This was one of the things we tried on our first day here at my studio...we played and sang live to one mic - Dick plays flute, I play uke...
L.O.V.E. (Duet with Dick Aven)
8 July, 2008 - BRAND NEW, RECORDED TODAY!!! - Banjo and Sax - and an AMAZING sax performance from Mr. Aven - check it out!
Aug 29, 2008: Wrote and recorded this just now. This is NOT about folks who adopt one or more personae for benign entertainment purposes. This is about folks who are either fearful or hiding something; unwilling to own up publicly to their thoughts or feelings; folks who lampoon or ridicule others from behind the veil of anonymity.
Sand Castles (The Hurricane's Coming)
6 Sept., 2008: Conceived and demo'ed this morning. Go ahead - build your mansion on the sand and see what happens...
We Cannot Have Tomorrow
I'll See You In My Dreams (duet)
Your grandma should know...
We Cannot Have Tomorrow (duet)
Featuring Dick Aven on baritone sax. Yeah, Man...
Don't Hide Your Love
28 April, 2008: Bought a new uke and a cajon a few days ago...here they are in their first recordings - a few melodic morsels I had previously worked out, but which lacked lyrics...recorded this morning, after checking the IAC blogs...and thus a song is born..
Recorded by ERIC LICHTER (who also made about half the noises)...a real quickie...much fun...that's his lead axe in your right speaker, Hugo in your left...and Eric took that picture of me rockin' out with his sweeeeeet Gretsch...
Glen Hill (with Eric Lichter)
Recorded with and by Eric Lichter at his Dirt Floor Studios. Compare this to the demo if you like. Groovy...
Please. Just tell me THE TRUTH.
What to Do?
At the Cavern
I sanded the paint off a '70s Strat, reassembled it, and plugged it in hoping I hadn't wired it wrong and wouldn't blow myself up...played the rhythm guitar track on this, making it up on the spot and not intending to do anything with it. I'd like to say the lead came just as easily, but that took a week of real work. Last thing added were Dean Clean's drums. Things get a little spotty once or twice, but given the way it was done, that's no surprise...still a rockin' bit of fun - shake yer bo
Men of Religion
A man gets tired of biting his tongue...

Just listened to "We Cannot Have Tomorrow" on the new Satori Station - I am blown away - this is an amazing sound - never heard anything like it ... I would totally download this but I notice you don't have a price tag on it on your profile page - How can I get an Mp3? So beautiful!

Lovely to see you still incredibly active on here and creatively - I've been struggling to write new tunes but have put up a new track here called Can't Touch The Sky at last - hope you like it.
I'm thinking of going Prime so I can put more than 2 tracks up!

Hi Hugh. Yes, the Kickstarter campaign has been interesting. After one week, I've got $750 pledged. Even if I don't hit my target of $3K, it's been good to get some buzz going on the new album. And just having all these people support me feels really rewarding. Better than cash, actually. Please forward this link to any and all! : http://kck.st/bk3wXl
