BOB BELAND – “Blissful Camper”
As I used to be assembling the songs for my eighth album, “Blissful Camper,” I began to see a theme develop. It was a private travelogue of kinds about my time right here in California.

Within the music there’s additionally a hidden reference to a sure well-known band and their chief’s A.Okay.A. when you pay attention carefully.

For some unknown purpose I considered Todd Rundgren’s nice double album “One thing/Something?” and realized that he hadn’t any music on that album or anyplace in his catalog and the phrase match completely so I hope he is not offended by my ‘borrowing’ it.
The title monitor , “Blissful Camper.” got here as a shock to me as I had no intention of writing a music with that title. I had it in thoughts just for the album title two thirds of the best way via after I all of a sudden turned ailing in February 2020. Whereas recovering, the lyrics of the music got here to me quick. So quick that I felt extra like a stenographer taking notes than a songwriter. A melody got here as quickly as I reviewed what I had written however it took one other three days for me to really feel ok to enter the studio and put it to music and the piano. The music got here collectively in a short time as effectively. This music did not come to me in a dream. It got here to me in the midst of the day whereas I used to be sick and something however alone with my ideas in a busy household family. Nevertheless, what I did really feel was the presence and phrases of my mom and father, who had handed away a long time in the past, coming again to me and whispering into my ear. I used to be listening to the spirits from long gone and it was an intense however stunning feeling of decision. I hope those that pay attention really feel the identical means I did.
Now, slightly background on the gamers who contributed their time and skills to “Blissful Camper.”
