(Ken Records 004, 1990)

A wonderful 1990 debut, long out of print, with a superb band that expertly negotiates ten memorable originals. The tunes named for musicians are remarkably deft character sketches. Although virtually unknown in the US, several later Bonafede projects are available at eMusic and are highly recommended.
