 Recording Information
 
The full title is David Baerwald and The New Folk Underground (featuring Will Sexton) - A Fine Mess. This very special edition CD was released through this website in December of 1999. There were roughly 500 of these produced. Most of the 500 were stamped with an individual number and signed by David. A smaller portion of the 500 were only signed and not numbered. The 2 disc 28 song collection contains guest appearances by Jewel, Sheryl Crow, Kevin Gilbert and many others. Art work for the packaging was created by Jeff Wells. The final packaging, although not exactly as it was initially planned, gave the set that classic DIY appeal that it deserved. Of course, this set has long since sold out, but they occassionally pop up on ebay - with most selling for well over $100. The set originally sold for $20 which included shipping.


     

 

A review of A Fine Mess posted by messybear on 4/19/2014
Epic storytelling. A literary novel, in III Acts. Beat. Poetry. Bent on Rock 'n Roll Rhythm 'n blues. This is soul..without being morose. This is the white AND the yolk. No tellin' just how many eggs got cracked to fashion this down homemade omelette. I've had the privilege of enjoying box set #031 for a few years now on account o the mind-numbing generosities of dbis tribe connectivity. You know you too. Thank you. [David Baerwald music has yet to ever go out of tune with the state of our whirl universal recorded language and good use o language tools, these ol' jewels . . . with a DANCE-able beat.

A review of A Prisoner's Dream from A Fine Mess posted by jeremiade on 11/10/2006
Jesus Christ, this album is now 7 years old?! Where has the time gone... Well, anyway, I love this song with a passion. It moves me deep, deep, deep within my soul, wherever that may be. I'd love to know what inspired the lyrics, as they could come from just about anything. The piano is gorgeous, just absolutely haunting, giving you that pain in your gut when sadness washes over you. Goddamn, what a song. Thank you, David.

"bozo wacko weirdo creep" should be credited also to Wyn Cooper, and "black mamba kiss" should also have a Charlie Sexton credit.
A review of Paddy Chayefsky's Dead from A Fine Mess posted by Ted Kostisin on 10/26/2003
This song pays big to the patient listener. Begins and stays very sullen and rolls into this wonderful frolic of finger picking and DB's musing. I truely can't get enough.

Does anyone else remember the old skit from one of Steve Martin's early comedy albums. "You just can't sing a sad song on the banjo"! Well DB did it, and pulled it off masterfully.
A review of The Crash from A Fine Mess posted by Andrew on 3/19/2003
The Crash should really be a major commercial hit round the globe. Instead, it stays secretly hidden away on this work in progress album. This is a much better version that in in the new NFU album. Gotta keep those edgy bits and not smooth things out too much. I must be the only person in New Zealand who owns a copy.

I am...most people I know who know me will attest to it...It's why I like it...and why I'm a fanů
A review of Why from A Fine Mess posted by Leeroi on 2/4/2003
Why were these songs unreleased? Why?!?? I love this song for it's bare (baer?) arrangement...poignant and unpretentious...DB's my boy...wonder who his muse is....
A review of Love #29 from A Fine Mess posted by Kravitz on 2/3/2003
I remember after receiving A Fine Mess, this was the first song that really caught my ear. A year earlier I went through a divorce, and the lyrics of this song, particularly the chorus, really brought a chuckle. To this day, whenever trust comes up in conversation I think of this song.

The fact that this song was on the HCTNFU release, and didn't get crap for air time, really proved to me just how completely disjointed the music industry is.
