Tom Mason Solo CDs
Salmagundi: A Tom Mason Anthology
An anthology that includes songs from out-of-print CD’s "Alchemy" and "Where Shadows Fall". Some long-time favorite are "I Thought I Heard a Train", "The World is Drunk" and "Chano Pozo's Shoes". The jacket has the words and chords to "I Don't Want the Night to End" and "I Thought I Heard a Train", so you can sing and play along!
Under a Mistletoe Sky
Ten new original rock and roll Christmas tunes, produced by Michael Webb, including "Gift-Wrapped Girl", "Little Elvis, King of the Elves", and "Christmas Boogaloo". East Nashvillian wrote "It’s a rocker, it’s fun, and by golly, it’s Christmas, from the first note to the last" and No Depression said "No Christmas party this year will be complete without Tom Mason’s bluesy, rocking album… On Under a Mistletoe Sky, Mason, the sly and jolly rock and roll elf, and his merry band of helpers deliver a sack brimming with rollicking songs that keep everybody dancing with the joy of the season."
A Slide Guitar Christmas
Ten instrumental versions of classic Christmas carols played on dobro and slide guitar, unlike any Christmas album you've heard. There are Latin grooves, a "Drummer Boy" with a New Orleans second line groove, a soothingly psychedelic "Angels We Have Heard on High", and an upbeat "Jolly Old St Nicholas" with soaring trumpet and a trombonist discharged from the Salvation Army. A longtime holiday favorite.
Tom Mason and the Blue Buccaneers CDs
"The Blue Buccaneer: Songs Inspired by the Golden Age of Pirates"
Our first pirate CD, 13 original songs that are still a big part of our repertoire, rocking out on acoustic instruments. "In The Service of the King" about press gangs and our ode to Blackbeard, "Decked Out Like The Devil". Featuring guest appearances from some of Nashville's finest, and the original versions of "Pirate Song" and "In The Drink".
13 sea shanties you can dance to, classic pirate songs for singing and swinging, not necessarily from the gallows. Will plunders never cease!! On this totally uptempo collection we veer from our own material to classic sea shanties, this time with a beat. ""Blow The Man Down" is flavored with a New Orleans groove, "Drunken Sailor" gets a Bo Diddley beat suitable for a mambo line, "All For Me Grog" has a bit of bluesy shuffle, and "Haul Away Joe" just plain rocks. There are some fiddle tunes spiced up with slide guitar and big beats, some new recordings of Blue Buccaneer favorites, and the first appearance on CD of "Talk Like a Pirate", our anthem written with John "Ol' Chumbucket" Baur, co-creator of International Talk Like a Pirate Day. There's what may be the first pirate polka, and the weep in your rum classic "Wild Mountain Thyme". The perfect soundtrack to your Pirate Party, drenched with fiddle, slide guitar, bass, drums, and a brigantine of sing-alongs.
