tunes from the tale Wonder

W.E. Bartolotta recorded fifteen songs with Mike Konopka at Pie In the Sky studio recently for Bartolotta's unique musical production entitled Wonder. Mike co-produced the music recordings with the author and also played guitar, bass, and backing vocals. Nic Barnum supplied additional guitar artistry along with backing vocals, Trish Ramsey played percussion elements, while Bartolotta anchored on piano, organ, and lead vocals.

excerpt from wonder:

"Planet 78rpm, 3rd planet from the Spindle, tours the Jukebox Kosmos. 78 hosts an intergalactic microcosm of beings attending existence. Just on the fringes of the Label territories is Somewhere. On the south side of Somewhere is the Peas & Hominy, base camp of The Legendary Legionnaires of Leisure, home of the MojoJuke. It is here, Vunder van Voosehausen's life ends and our tale begins."
