BOY did I love this when I was very small! My abortive musical career consisted--at the age of five or six--of "writing" a song that was an almost exact copy of "McKeon's Coming." I was always very concerned about the title character--does he make it? Does he get home?? Does he???

This and most of the other songs concern--that's right--roguish sorts of individuals. They're almost all very, very, very...good.

01. McKeon's Coming
02. I'm a Rambler, I'm a Gambler
03. Thumpy
04. Duncan and Brady
05. Balamena
06. Marina/Bimbo de Colonello
07. On the Wallaby
08. Old Fat Boat
09. Ramble Away
10. A Most Unpleasant Way, Sir
11. Mist-Covered Mountains/Bonnie Galway
12. Blackbird
13. St. Thomas
14. Woodworker's Litany
