THE KING OF BASEBALL 14 baseballs on 14 breezes 14 snowballs in 14 freezers (They used to call him the king of baseball) Over the fence and down the hill I used a 29 until I had the strength to swing a 30 I made a dive and hit the dirt There's a mark left by my sweat band The rest of my arm got a nice tan My uniform was like the Yankees' When they were playing in the 20's And then one season we got new ones That was the season I got two runs (They used to call him the king of baseball)

about

Originally conceived to be a double-album concept album, like "Paradise Theatre" or "Dancing On the Ceiling", "St. Donny" excluded all the padding and filler that would have placed it in the pantheon of the above-mentioned opuses. The result? A hauntingly magnetic opera of sorts.

Pizazz were an unknown supergroup from Long Island in the mid-to-late 90s. Featuring Mike O'Shaughnessy of The Throats, Jim O'Shaughnessy of The Feebs and Jen Mackey of The Frustrations, Pizazz dominated the basement/bedroom music scene of eastern Nassau County in the mid-90's (fizzling out in the Pacific Northwest in 2001 with a collection of sub-par recordings). Ah, but those albums during the Clinton Administration!
