Title: My Name is Joe, This is My House Band/Artist: The Als’ Rock ‘N’ Roll Jamboree Album: The Gamut: Pirate Alley Records 1993-2001 Personnel: Matthew “Al” Bednar; Kevin “Al” Crotty; John “Al” Huston; Geoff “Al” Miller; Shawn “Al” Neary; Doug “Al” Rose; Brad “Al” Williams. Recorded: December 1995, Pirate Alley Studios, Ottumwa, Ia. Fun fact: As far as improvised storytelling songs go, I have to think this is among the all-time greatest. Doug “Al” Rose’s vocals — shouted into a room mic — are still mind-bogglingly great 16 years later.
