A monologue about some of his albums.

Alcoholic guitarist Charles Leslie deBeau and his encounters with the fading alt. country band The Blue Bourbon Orchestra, described in the book of the same name (teaser trailer).

A-5 : "Hangover & Swastika" - Echo Johnson contends with a hangover and history during the course of a single Sunday afternoon.
A-6 : "Dancing Salad" - Echo Johnson trades culinary delights with his friend and neighbor Espy Echeverria.…
A-7: "Tattoos" - Echo Johnson attempts to engage a client with stories of tattoos past.
