Social Justice Music:.
Workers of the World: UNITE
Songs in celebration of Workin' Stiffs everywhere. Songs for singin' along strike lines, in Union halls, at night in blue collar bars, just about anywhere workin' folks gather up. Easy to sing to and easy to pass on. Sorta a sound track for the class war.
Crimes Against the State
A collection of many folks favorite finger-style tunes from the old days. Songs exploring homelessness, war, and inequality. This Cd was at one time the number one underground collection in the Peoples Republic of China.
Patrick's only collected music with a full backing band. Songs of radical environmentalism, anti-war, and anti-establishment. Call it a prelude to Occupy. Produced by the amazing Michael Zimmerman who also leads the backing band Small Revolution. Social Justice music at full tilt and full volume. We recorded this one in 2003, but only did a limited release. We re-released this CD Nov. 2012.
A soon to be released collection of the artists musings on the fall of this little empire we call home.
Crimes Against Nature
A collection of the environmental songs of one of the original environmental writers.
Soil of Desperation
The award winning cassette is now being prepared for release in Cd format These amazing songs were written during what was called the Homeless War in Eugene Or. The songs were written in homeless camps about the people living there at the time, and were sung on the lines, at the camps, in the jails and finally all over America. "With songs of astonishing power and grace, Mr. Dodd puts a human face to cold statistics." Timothy Mason Village Vanguard
