Naked In A Trailer

Al Rose Music

Whitehouse Records No. 9 (1996)

Rose captured his spellbinding musical magicianship on his second album with his band, The Transcendos. The songs are as fascinating as those on Information Overload but the warmth, the interplay, the simpatico of the musicians, glows on every track. The dynamic & stylistic spectrum ranges from his dada-gospel “Wander Blind,” to the full force of “Mister Bigger” to the quiet simmer of “21st Of June.” These are lyrics meant to envelop you. The Transcendos contributions color the compositions under Al’s masterful direction. The band included Steve Hashimoto (bass), Laura Blye (vox), Heath Chappell (drums), Carter Luke (keyboards), Maury Smith (guitar and mandolin), and Mike Smith (guitar). He also displayed his artistry as a watercolorist with the cover painting for Naked In A Trailer.
