ABOUT

Notes on uploaded (audio only) music: all music and lyrics by John Franklin
All instrumentation by John Franklin (multi-track recordings).

"Say It Again": Hey, it ain't rock, but I like this song pretty much the way it is. Written in Spain under the influence of their beautiful cathedrals. Like all good love songs, it is ambiguous as to whom it is being sung.

"Some Things Work": This is my nod to George Harrison. This song badly needs to be re-recorded (recorded a few years ago, and I am not happy with the musicianship); but, who has the time??

Video: Country style montage. Hey, the production quality is awful, but that's video for ya...

Video: Teddy Bear's Picnic. Written by Fuller, very cute song. Wait a moment for music to start and enjoy the bear pictures (taken by myself...).

Video: Johnny B. Goode (3/24/18): Rhythm guitar and vocal

Influences

IWhy is "folkrock" not listed as a category?? Always liked a diversity of influences. Garcia & Co. were very good at this feat. LOL, want to hear Hotel California on banjo?

A set list is likely to include Clapton, Dylan, Seger, Raitt, Cash & Highwaymen, M Tucker Band, Guthrie (Arlo and Woody both), Eagles, NRPS, CCR, Presley (yes, Elvis), Petty, Goo Goo Dolls, Van Morrison, Stones, Haggard, Fleetwood Mac, Wille Nelson, Allman Bros, Who, Beatles, The Band,... , and Garcia, Weir & Co. (Grateful Dead) in no particular order, I just went down the current set list.
As you can see from audio, video, and set list, diversity is the name of the game here. What's that? You want to hear Comfortably Young after Woody Guthrie? Hotel California on a banjo? No problem.
