about

The album is a collection of songs ranging from a Frank Zappa style 70's swirling flanger parody of a party gone bad, to songs protesting the NSA and the music industry treatment of artists.

I made each song fifty-cents, the minimum allowed by bandcamp without being free, easy enough for most to pay, and the album just two-dollars. Bandcamp now charges for all free downloads past 200, so I figured this price makes it just about free, but doesn't cost me money to have downloaded.

UPDATE: THANK YOU FOR THE GREAT RESPONSE, THE FIRST COUPLE OF DAYS HAVE BEEN HUGE! Truly appreciate your support! Rick

"Back With the Jack" starts with a Frank Zappa style 1970's swirling flanger ironic parody about a low-rent trailer park party that ran out of Jack Daniel's.

"Streaming Sweatshops" protests that recording industry companies are again cheating artist's in royalty payments; and I included an alternate take with megaphone vocals for "Back With the Jack".

"You Gotta Get Up and Riot! is a song that protests the NSA surveillance state.

A love song about how people affect our lives with the things "They Say".

"She's a Sorry Excuse for a Woman", a terrible country song parody finishes the album...and my career...he he he.

Pay $10 for the album, and I'll include your name in the credits for the video we are going to make for "Back With the Jack". note: For those of you who take this option, please send an email to me with a copy of your receipt, and permission to include your name on the video!

Thank you for listening, and feel free to drop me a note if you liked these songs, or have a request.

Peace, Rick.

about

Rick McCargar Portsmouth, Virginia

Been playing guitar and singing since I built my own guitar out of a peach-crate and rubber bands when I was ten.

Survived a couple of strokes, so I give free guitar lessons online, to pay forward for all the people who took the time to help me.

Peace!

Track Name: Artist's Lament (Streaming Sweatshops)
Artist's Lament (Streaming Sweatshops)

I won’t let Pandora Pimp Me Out no more
I won’t let Spotify, Make Me their whore
Built streaming sweatshops, tell me I’m in on ground floor
The way they work, I won’t get paid any more

You know I used to love it
But the music’s over now

No one wants to pay for songs any more
They listen for free, use bitTorrent and Tor
They tell me to play live and live in motels
Most live clubs are closed and busking is hell.

You know I used to love it
But the music’s over now

I write my own and want to play cover songs
One million streams cost me Ten Grand that’s wrong
They don’t pay artists, pretend that they do
Play along they say, and you’ll get your due

You know I used to love it
But the music’s over now

Club owners tell us we must pay to play
You know when I leave I won’t be back this way
The new music business, same as the old
The artists sleep on couches, left out in the cold.

You know I used to love it
But the music’s over now

I won’t let Pandora Pimp Me Out no more
I won’t let Spotify, Make Me their whore
Built streaming sweatshops, tell me I’m in on ground floor
The way they work, I won’t get paid any more

You know I used to love it
But the music’s over now

You know I used to love it
But the music’s over now

I won't let Pandora pimp me out no more...

Track Name: I'll Be Back (Back With the Jack) 70's style Funk-rock/rap
“Back With The Jack”

Drinking, carousing, and carrying on
Lovely ladies dancing on the lawn
Someone’s in my bedroom getting it on
Keep the party burning
When I’m gone

I’ll Be Back!
You Know I’ll Be Back
Back With The Jack!
I’ll Be Back…Back With The Jack

Drinking, cussing, and carrying on
Some guys are fighting, out on the lawn
The ladies in the pool, they’re getting it on
Keep the party burning
When I’m gone

I’ll Be Back!
You Know I’ll Be Back
Back With The Jack!
I’ll Be Back…Back With The Jack

You know what happened when I returned
My tv was missing, the couch overturned
My lady’s passed out flat on her back
I said keep the party burning
Till I Get Back

I came back!
You know I came back
Back With The Jack
I’ll Knock some back with my friend Jack!
I Came Back…Back With The Jack….hell,..more for me..

I came back, you know I came back, back with the Jack!

Track Name: You Gotta Get Up and Riot! (NSA Rant)
You Know You Gotta Get Up and Riot!

Intro
You know you gotta get up and riot
You know you gotta get up and riot
You know you can’t deny it

Chorus

You Know You gotta get excited! 

You know you gotta go incite it!

You know you can't stand beside it!

You know you gotta get up and riot!

Verse

The world's in an ugly place

They're pitting us race against race

If you have cash, you're out of the rain

If you're broke, they lock you in chains


Chorus

You know you gotta get excited!

You know you gotta go incite it!

You know you can't stand beside it!

You know you gotta get up and riot!

Verse

It doesn't matter if you're left or right

Too much power makes a person lose sight

They shouldn't listen when we use our phone!

We have a right to love and be left alone!

Break

You know you gotta get up and riot
You know you gotta get up and riot
You know you can’t deny it


Chorus

You know you gotta get excited!

You know you gotta go incite it!

You know you can't stand beside it!

You know you gotta get up and riot!

We all just want to live our life

It's not living when it's lived in strife

Everyone has to play their part

You Know That Slacktivism won't, SET YOU ON FIRE!

Chorus

You know you gotta get excited!

You know you gotta go incite it!

You know you can't stand beside it!

You know you gotta get up and riot!

Verse

Our Sisters and Brothers, are not our rivals

This song’s about, our survival

If you have power, don’t abuse it!

If you want Peace - You have to choose it!

Break

You know you gotta get up and riot
You know you gotta get up and riot
You know you can’t deny it


Chorus

You know you gotta get excited!

You know you gotta go incite it!

You know you gotta get up and riot!

You know you gotta get up and riot!
