Product Notes

For The Baby Doll is a loving, stomping, hell-raising remembrance that literally screams the old Willie Dixon trope, "I live the life I love and I love the life I live." Nick Tremulis's accounts, both written and musical, of his life journey from the 'burbs of Chicago to New York City and back play out like many real artist's journeys -- unless they were born with a trust fund. He makes the usual stops: Greyhound stations, storied artist havens like the Chelsea Hotel, hip scenes like Max's Kansas City, couches in girls' apartments, fly-by-night record labels, basement recording studios, strip joints, and dark alleys. Where Tremulis separates himself from the pack is in the retelling and reforming of his past. A suite of songs built around a tiny but memorable topless bar known simply as The Baby Doll that became a focal point for Tremulis and his artistic friends in New York City, the little joint and the characters who inhabit it come to stand for all that is good and sweet and true. Tremulis's gift is taking the blemishes and bruises and putting them on a pedestal, cherishing them, holding them close, harvesting the life force they offer to anyone curious enough to search. Surrounded by his honking band of full-grown bigbeat rockers, Tremulis graces us with a beautiful love song of youth and exploration, and along the way points out to us what we've lost in the modern rush towards gentrification and exclusivity. Like fellow Chicagoan Nelson Algren's masterpiece A Walk On The Wild Side, For The Baby Doll is a blast of electrifying balm for the soul. -- William Michael Smith.
