Album Notes
Contagious Heartache [2004]

"Austin's DB Harris and His Men of Action do pop-country right. Contagious Heartache (Nighttime Records) disguises its depressing subject matter in the sunny sounds of California, and be it Bakersfield bounce ("One More Time") or beach-blanket bingo ("Girls Gone Wild!"), Harris' vocals are as silken as Baja boy Chris Isaak." -- Austin Chronicle

How the 11 Audio Remedies Work
Issued by the ‘Nighttime Man’ db Harris

1. Girls Gone Wild! - Ingredients work by including images of ‘girls going wild’ to fun surfy beats, hand clapping, and live recordings of real women of this type.
2. Back to My Guitar - fusion takes place in the psyche by combining a sense of fun pop with much guitar and a sense of security in one’s escape to an always-reliable guitar.
3. All by My Lonesome - a ‘patent loneliness acceptance agent’ will go to work in the heart directing the victim to the work of the dramatic Johnnie Ray and obscure Phil Spector records.
4. Separation Time - Directives such as ‘laying in the sun’ and separating from other victims until desperation passes are included.
5. One More Time - Co-writer/singer Brian Hofelt of The Derailers has a ‘Buck Owens alternate’ of this remedy, but this one works via Farfisa.
6. Contagious Heartache - works through spooky A minor frequency and may cause side effects of repeating the phrase ‘It’s Going Round’.
7. Evelyn - ‘a remedy of warning’ will lodge itself in the heart and create a protective layer against women who wear ‘love lockets’. Highly dramatic formula!
8. Love Don’t Run - Use only in advanced stages of healing. Reverse effects may occur if combined with sad hillbilly music or The Smiths. ‘Was our love meant for a cemetery?’
9. Men of Action Theme Song - This instrumental concoction may be enhanced by adding a surf trip, watching old Mary Tyler Moore shows, or listening to the trumpeting of Herb Albert.
10. She’s a Dreamer - written with Monte Warden. Susanna Van Tassel is the girl doing the la-las. Most Orbisonesque track on the CD.
11. Torture - this is a virtually unknown duet ‘Everly Remedy’ written by John T. Loudermilk. Harmonies done by infected female victim Susanna Van Tassel.

This will get you over your Heartache!
D.B. Harris may be compared to Dwight Yoakam, Chris Isaak, and Raul Malo (formerly of the Mavericks). But this is Contagious and should be selling in the platinum sales! Thanks D.B. for another wonderful cd!
