About this album

Broadsides & Retrospectives is a CD released in 2005 by Vic Sadot on his Crazy Planet Records label. It is available at CD Baby. “BROADSIDES & RETROSPECTIVES”, is a 19 song CD project: The “Best of 25 Years of Crazy Planet & Planète Folle Bands”

Vic Sadot, a Newark, DE based singer-songwriter, has released a compilation of 19 songs from his 25 years as a working musician. The Crazy Planet Band’s first concerts were at Newark Community Day and The Deer Park Tavern in the fall of 1979. Vic’s band has always put its emphasis on original and topical song material with a reverence for folk, blues, and rock roots. After traveling in southwestern Louisiana in 1992, Vic returned to form Planète Folle (Crazy Planet in French), which specializes in Cajun/Zydeco and New Orleans R&B. Planète Folle released Comin’ Home, a 16 song CD in 1997, featuring the original bi-lingual (French/English)Bourbon Street.

Crazy Planet released a number of songs with pop potential, such as Good Time Delaware, Beer Muscles, Respect for the Road, and Comeback Kids. This is the first time that these songs appear in the CD format. There are also 6 new songs in the offering of otherwise “retrospective” selections. Key contributions to these new songs come from the exquisite guitar of Rob Sadot, the well-selected effects of the piano synthesizer of Dean A. Banks, and the rich back-up vocals of Ellen Lebowitz, another CD Baby artist.

The lead song is Mad Cowboy Disease, a hard-hitting broadside against the Bush Administration’s war policies with a hilarious rationale for such hypocritical and bellicose behavior.

You know it’s kind o’ Sci-Fi what’s happening today
