"Ladies and Gentlemen, Hobos and Tramps, Cross-eyed Mosquitoes and Bow-legged Ants....."

You might have heard this opening line at a live Falderal performance or on one of their previous recordings on that vintage media known as "cassette tape." Here for your listening pleasure, on long-awaited compact disc, is a collection of Falderal "hits." (Operators are standing by to separate you from your money.) I've known the...ahem...gentlemen of Falderal for a number of years....wait, should I admit that in public. Oh well, too late. In all that time have I never known them to miss a beat (maybe skip over a few or just avoid them but never miss one). This CD collection of their all-time favorites captures their infectious (no shots available...sorry) comedic performance skills in all their glory. From the beautiful Spanish Waltz, to the humorous Preacher and the Bear, to You Ain't Talkin' To Me, you will be amazed at the  variety and creativity of these guys. Falderal truly captures the spirit of the old-time, medicine show type of string band. What a great addition to anyone's CD collection. Of course if you happen not to enjoy it (and how could that happen?), the CD makes a great coaster or even Christmas tree decoration. I've even heard of people taking old CDs' and hanging them in trees to scare away the birds. Hmmm....Anyway, back to Falderal. Add this CD to your collection today. The quality is outstanding, the cover is very nice, and the price is right (check the Falderal website for purchase information). They might even throw in a free set of Ginsu knives, but mostly likely they will throw in a nickel's worth of free advice.
