Herb MetoyerWell…. Here I Am Again,

It has been almost forty years since I recorded my last album for Verve/Folkways. I waited a long time, hoping folk music would resurface again. Well… I’ve about run out of time and I feel as if I should make my move. The problem is… I have amassed a ton of music over the years and it would require over five CD’s to showcase what I have accumulated.

Although the acoustic guitar is my favorite instrument, I have augmented my arrangements with synthesized music. The subjects of my music, however, are still clearly representative of the Folk genre. I love to write about people, news, and situations I have encountered or bore witness to in my lifetime. “Ole July,” for example, is a song about a homeless street singer in New Orleans. And since I am a Creole, I also included a couple of Creole songs.

At any rate, I hope you enjoy the selections I chose for this initial CD.

Thanks for your support, And Thanks to my sons, Herbert, III & Angelo who played backup guitar for me.

Herb Metoyer.

    This album was originally recorded by MGM's Verve/Folkways in 1966.  I was a helicopter pilot with the US Army at the time. Not long after this album was released, I was promoted to Major. And... shortly after that, I was ordered to curtail my music career because such activities were not becoming of a Field Grade Officer. I had a family with five kids to support so I let the music go until after I retired from the military. The album, of course, is no longer available except through several companies who specialize in out of print old albums.

    This CD is a remix with added musical accompaniments. The lady on the cover with me is my wife, Gerri.
