The Who Said What CD is now available from CD Baby, iTunes, and Amazon, as well as the other usual online outlets. The 14 songs in the set (an Elder's dozen, as Dave likes to call them) offer a balanced mix of the personal and the political, from the romantic longings conveyed by Go With Me and Song of the Wood to the understated anti-war message of If I Was You, the concerns expressed in Wind Whistle about poisons released to the environment by nuclear power, the hitch-hiker's search for freedom and direction in Take Me Further, the dark nightmare landscape of nuclear destruction portrayed in Dream Revelations, the seemingly-endless conflict over the Holy Land laid out in Nobody Knows and the conversational appreciation of enduring friendship that concludes the set in So Long Friend.
