This is a special and quirky collection of songs.  All sloppy home recordings.  All with Ken playing everything except for “The Wedding Song” which is a live performance with John Cordes on violin.  Every so often Ken would gather his most recent home recordings and burn a CD to listen to as he rode the subway.  This collection was put together 3 days before 9/11/2001.  After Ken listened back to the whole CD for the first time, he decided it should be called, “It’s a Bomb.”  He felt by the end there was an explosion that took place- of what it’s hard to put into words.  When the events of 9/11 happened a few days later, the title “It’s a Bomb” seemed inappropriate or distasteful.  For a while, he called it, “It’s a Balm.”  It was never released or mastered.  A number of the songs have their only appearance in this collection.  Some later became studio recordings with the W3 all star band.
