Two Man Gentlemen Band "Great Calamities" (2006)

This may be the perkiest, happiest collection of songs about disaster & misfortune that I've ever had the pleasure to listen to.  Rather than focus on fiddle tunes, or sad songs about mother, TMGB are more interested in hokum & novelty songs.  The "Great Calamities" that the title refers to include the Hindenburg disaster, the Titanic, & the Civil War.
