Where Charlie Parker got the name "Bird" is a mystery -- In one famed story from The Reno Club in Kansas City, Drummer Jo Jones (no relation to "Philly" Jo Jones) threw a cymbal at teenage Charlie Parker's feet when he poorly improvised a saxophone solo in the wrong key, causing him to fly like a bird.

Description
This is a new vinyl pressing of Pokey LaFarge's Manic Revelations pressed on 180 gram Marble Sky vinyl. Includes custom double-sided inner sleeve and free full album mp3 download card.

Pokey LaFarge tries to make sense of trouble he's seen and trouble he's been in. This is the Great Why of his unending passion for songwriting.

Each chord, each riff shades the stories he sets up in his lyrics, always in search of the purest truth within the 10 forlorn, haunting melodies on Manic Revelations.

A musician, a storyteller, a narrator of the messy, unkempt American experience… Pokey LaFarge sits, he watches, he writes. Everything that's worth happening happens in his songs. From the broad social narrative of 'Riot In The Streets' to the internal tension of 'Must Be A Reason' and 'Bad Dreams' to the profound alienation of 'Silent Movie,' these Manic Revelations are questions, they are answers, they are an epoch for Pokey LaFarge.
