Listen to PJ Elliott on TouchTunes and AMI Jukeboxes All Over The World!
PJ's first cd, , recorded in California winter 2006
includes covers by Van Morrison, Neil Young, Bob Dylan,
Paul Simon, Johnny Cash and more,
as well as the original song "True Story (The Bay Street Song)"
available at performances, CD Baby and iTunes
PJ Elliott's Second recording effort "Under The Influence: Drinking Songs Vol. 1"
features covers of classic drinking songs ranging from rock to country,
blues and folk.
The album starts off with Willie Nelson's straightforward "I Gotta Get Drunk"
and rolls smoothly into "Thankin' Jose Cuervo",
Buddy Craig's ode to Tequila and the hardships
of making a living playing taverns.
Other highlights include 2 Grateful Dead covers
(Mexicali Blues, Brown Eyed Women),
2 Merle Haggard tunes
(I Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink, Reasons to Quit),
the classic Albert Collins blues tune "I Ain't Drunk",
a rousing version of David Allan Coe's
"Jack Daniels If You Please", the folk bounce of
"Bottle of Wine" written by Tom Paxton and
recorded by numerous others.
What would a compilation of drinking songs be without a
Jimmy Buffett number? How about
the upbeat ode to hangovers
"My Head Hurts, MY Feet Stink and I Don't Love Jesus"
which has been a staple of PJ's long standing Sunday Night
shows at the Bay Street Hotel in Sodus Point, NY.
One of PJ's favorites is Neil Young -
included on this CD is the mournful "Old Country Waltz",
originally included on Young's American Stars and Bars album,
this song tells the tale of
easing the pain of a break-up with tequila while
"the band plays the old country waltz".
The album is rounded out w/ a snippet of the Budweiser
anthem from the seventies "Here Comes The King",
Hank Williams Jr's "Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound"
and Sticks McGhee's "Drinkin' Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee".
Although the album closes with Haggard's "Reasons to Quit",
bear in mind that this is Drinking Songs Vol. 1,
so if you enjoyed this album, stay tuned for more drinking songs in the future!

Elaine, Rochester, NY
We want to thank you for performing at Bristol Woodlands.
We appreciate your professionalism and your obviously
outstanding talent. The volume was perfect, not too loud
to deafen anyone, but loud enough that your music actually
carried down to some of our furthest sites. Even though
we would have liked more campers to actually come up and
sit down at the pavilion to enjoy the music, many said they
had a good time just sitting at their site with friends,
especially enjoying the wide range of selections that you
We look forward to seeing you again next Memorial Day Weekend. We wish you continued success.
