Child's Play

by Doc Mason

Released 2018
Released 2018
Acoustic guitar based renditions provide the framework for some of the finest musicians I have known to join in to introduce new compositions, and interpret classic & traditional songs designed to entertain the young, and the young at heart.
NOTES
A number of years ago, I was encouraged by my grown children to record a collection of songs for my grandchildren to enjoy. It was to be a family affair, and I did get some help from a couple of my offspring, as well as my eldest granddaughter, who starts off Twinkle Twinkle Little Star by way of a recording made when she was 6 years old. We chose some songs, not so much in regards …

Released 2017
Road's End Music
Released 2017
Road's End Music
Acoustic Guitar and Bass Rhythm section with plenty of harmony vocals, and tasteful solos, with lyrics worth repeating.
NOTES
A dozen or so years ago, I purchased, and set up a studio at my home in order to record the catalog of songs that have come to me over the course of my life, starting at the age of 35. That evolved into recording many of the songs that I have enjoyed, and which had an impact on me as well. At times, it has been a profound learning experience, that is, giving life to …

To the Tune Of...

by Doc Mason

Released 2016
Released 2016
It all starts with my Acoustic Guitar, and the music builds from there, as I adapt my originally developed style to classic works, and lesser known songs, some of which I believe are bound to become classic songs in and of themselves.
NOTES
I have spent the past 31 or so years of my life living between two realities. One, that of a fast paced, Earth grounded Emergency Physician, the other, a devoted Musician who has many times experienced the mystery of the Muse; like when, as John Lennon wrote, "Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup, They slither wildly as they slip away across the universe." And they do if you don't write them …

Well Worth the Trouble

by Doc Mason

Released 2016
Released 2016
"Well Worth The Trouble" is the second of four Acoustic recording projects I have put together, consisting of a mixture of my own original compositions as well as other relatively new songs admixed with well known, time-tested, classics.
NOTES
Well Worth The Trouble is a collection of 14 songs, recorded over the past 4-5 years. I wrote 4 of the songs, including the title cut, which was written, in part in August of 2001, and the last verse written in November of that same year. It stands as my Anthem regarding the 9-11 events, and it is what my "Muse" had to say. The cover songs are tunes that I was drawn to record over those years. …

I See a Rainbow

Uniquely stylized versions of classic and original songs built around an Acoustic Guitar and Fretless Bass backbone, with an array of superb instrumental accompaniment.
NOTES
"I See A Rainbow," is collection of 13 songs, and is the first of four "Virtual Records" that I have been working on, mostly over the past 4-5 years; all of which will be released over the coming few months. As my earlier recordings have been more heavily weighted with my originally written songs, and those original songs of some other lesser known songwriters, starting with "I See A Rainbow," I have taken time to learn …

Original, Acoustic Guitar driven Songs & Music, brought to you by the Muse, as I have experienced It.
NOTES
This incarnation of "Let's Go Get Cloned" is to be the final installment of a project I started in 2003, at which time I invested in recording equipment in order to document the numerous songs that I had been privileged to experience, and write, as I lived my life as a husband, a father of five children, and an Emergency Physician. Recently, through the wonders of modern day technology, I have been able to re-unite with …

There is an added, never before heard original song, "Christmas Back Home," written by my friend and multi-talented instrumentalist, Jim Christian, and an added cover of the …

We Got Our Dancin' Shoes On

by Doc Mason

Released 2017
Released 2017
An entirely original mixture of songs, weighted heavily towards "Traditional Country Music," with lyrics that will leave you feeling good, and music that will make you want to dance, and sing along.
NOTES
This particular project was originally recorded in a garage, turned recording studio, in Austin, Texas in 1990. There was a technical glitch in the production that resulted in the original cassette tape release to be removed from distribution. The original 8 track recordings, done on 1/2 "reel to reel tape, were eventually transferred to my computer around 2005, and after multiple mixes and remixes, I believe that I finally got it as right as it's ever gonna be. Doc …

"Hold Me When It Rains," this particular collection of songs was originally released to the public, in the Fall of 2011. It contains seven of my original compositions, while the remaining five songs are ones that quickly became, and have remained among my favorites throughout these relatively recent years.
