Clap Your Hands

I'll spare you the poetic wax here folks, I know some of us are trying to start our Labor Day road trips early and I think this should put a your step. Or something. I love this theme- I might have thought of it, I don't remember, but I think it's the first disc we've done that you could play for a stranger and they could figure out the theme. Most songs have copius claps in them, some have accompanying claps, some are ABOUT clapping, and Marcus's song has about 5 fast claps before the song starts and that's about it. See if you can tell which one that is... As always, the artwork done by my lovely wife is amazing and I hope you all take the time to savor it as you give this album a spin. Thanks, and see ya in the funny pages.
