Monahan's Old Truck
During the first weeks after 9/11, while New York City courageously endured the largest attack on American soil, we as songwriters started trying to express the experience through music to hopefully provide comfort and support through a truly American story. Many people and companies donated money, time, and equipment to help produce this album, including the Northeast Blues Association, and the Watervliet Fire Department, all in upstate New York. But nothing could ever equal the priceless contributions made by the NYFD and the many other first responders who protect that great city. These stories were gathered by direct interview with the firefighters at Ladder 5 /Engine 24 in the East Village. They had lost 11 souls. The CD insert contains further inspirational information. Profits from the sales of this music was donated to the Women's and Children's Relief Fund for that particular fire station to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
