Well" was recorded in 1987 at the height of the "tar-head"
stage of the The Town Cryers (the boys were all dying their hair
black, in some sort of attempt to all resemble Elvis ???). It was
only available on vinyl and was a 12" record played at 45 rpm.
This caused some consumers to think that their record was warped,
as many attempted to play it at 33.3 rpm. The record was popular
across the country, mostly on university stations, making it to
the number one spot on seven stations, and in the top ten of over
won a songwriting award from the national performers' rights organization
PROCAN for the song "Cry at Night", but never went to
pick up his award, as it was in Toronto, and the Cryers' were plaing
in Montreal the weekend of the ceremony.
of "All's Well" can still be purchased through the Flat
and Black Records web site.
