  • Garrison Keillor and the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band

    You’ve heard Garrison Keillor and the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band perform on the radio. Now you can enjoy their feel-good music on CD!

    Prairie Home Companion listeners are frequently treated to a song—sometimes to a familiar tune, sometimes to original music—with words by Garrison Keillor. In them, he sings of home, love, friendship, family, faith, or just plain fun. These sixteen songs, specially recorded for this collection, are some of his best.

    All songs performed by Garrison Keillor and the Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band
    “I carry this solemn mug around in public to encourage strangers to mind their manners, but when I get home I am glad to make faces, quack like a duck, dance a little dance, and even sing a little. For many years now I have felt at home on the radio. These are some of the songs.”
    —Garrison Keillor
