about

Black and White was going to be big production. As soon as (factorial) was completed and released I was already plotting the next Jim Curnutte solo album. I was ready as ever.
There was going to be 10 songs. At first Black and White was going to be series of five 45 rpm 12" records released. Side one was to be two songs from Black and White and side two was going to be a song re recorded in the studio of a track from the Beneath album and a track from the Phaze Shifter album. When they were all released you would have the entire Black and White plus five re recorded songs from Beneath and five songs from the Phaze Shifter album.
Three months later Black and White home version was going to be released the same as you have here. A short run of Black and White would be a double record set with all of the studio BW's from the 12"s and the home masters.
All of this was only going to cost somewhere in the range of seven grand to complete. The cover was going to save us on the cost, simply because it's black and white, because it is cheaper, hence the album title.
Plus, on the cover as you see here my name phonetic spelling. The reason for this addition was due to radio DJ's who were always mispronouncing my name.
Black and White was never released on vinyl because as in all real life events, shit happens. Connie wanted out of Neurological and Elliot was never to be found until 2015.
Thanks to Alex Kendall the dream was completed and wow it is better than I had imagined it would be. When I hear these songs I want to get up and tear the fucking house down, piece by piece.
Enjoy, it's free for your pleasure.

Track Name: Is It All Over
Is It All Over
(Jim Curnutte)

Sometimes I get rampid with thought
Then there's times when I'm not
So, Jim get quick with the pen
So, you can do it all over again
Is it all over, Is it all over
Is it all over, Is it all over

There was a time when I was runnin' around
Tried to make myself a big old town
Nobody wanted to hear my sound
They all said you're just kidding me around
Is it all over, Is it all over
Is it all over, Is it all over
Is it all over

Is it all over, Is it all over
Is it all over, Is it all over

There was a time when I could almost see it
There was a time when I could almost be it
But I was to slow when the pen
And my intelligence wouldn't let me do it again
Is it all over, Is it all over
Is it all over, Is it all over
Is it all over, Is it all over
Is it all over
Ah, yeah, ah it might be

“To bad she won't live, but then again who does”

Track Name: Working For You
Working for you
(Jim Curnutte)

Every day it's rise and shine
Just to meet that daily grind
Got to get yourself to work on time
Ah, the boss-man stands in you
Standing there trying to jump on you
Always got some piece of worthless grind
I've been working for you, I've been working for you
I've been working for you, I've been working for you
I've been working for you

Working hard every day and night
Just to make things look alright
Working hard for the man so he can get by
He's always got something That's negative to bring you down
All nothing else he says for you
I've been working for you, I've been working for you
I've been working for you, I've been working for you
I've been working for you, I've been working for
I’ve been working for, I've been working for you

There's always something wrong
They're always coming down on me strong
Trying to make you feel about one inch tall
They grab you by the seat of the pants
Drag up and drag you down
They say “hey man you ain't worth anything”
I've been working for you, I've been working for you
I've been working for you, I've been working for you
I've been working for you, I've been working for
I’ve been working for, I've been working for you

I've been working for you, I've been working for you
I’ve been working for you, I've been working for you
I've been working for you.

Well today I'm not going to rise
Not going to go down and work no more
Sick and tired of the way he brings me down
Never says anything good
He says "well, if you could”
Never anything right not a pat on the back
I've been working for you, I've been working for you
I've been working for you, I've been working for you
I've been working for you

Every day and night, I've been working for
I've been working for you.

I've been working for you, I've been working for you
I've been working for you, I've been working for you
I've been working for you

Well you say you're getting' married, you want to tell me all about it
She's a real fine lady, there ain't no doubt about it
So you say it's set for Monday, you're gonna tie the big knot
She's all that you wanted, and she's all that you got

You ought to take it real slow
Or you'll never know what hit you
Ahh, man you'll never ever know
Oh, man you'll never ever know

You want to be in the system, and get yourself a home
And take the little lady, live all alone

Or you'll never know what hit you
Ahh, man you'll never ever know
Oh, you'll never never know
No, you'll never ever know

Track Name: Rosy Lips and High Heel Shoes
Rosy Lips and High Heel Shoes
(Jim Curnutte)

Rosy lips and high heel shoes,
Tight dress and a ring.
Long hair and curvy hips,
Man shes got everything
Working girls who go out at night
Hooking men on the streets
Man she is one

Works a job out on the street,
She's the queen of the range.
She's worth about fifty bucks,
She don't take spare change.
Working girls who go out at night
Hookin' men on the street, Now she is one
When you see her out on the street
And she hooks on you
You can bet man, she's not free
And that's true. And that's true.
And that's true. That's true

You can see her out on the strip,
You can find her in a bar.
She's the girl you don't want to meet,
You won't get very far.
Working girls who go out at night
Hookin' meat on the street, Now she is one.
When you see her out on the street
And she hooks on you
You can bet man, she's not free
And that's true. And that's true.
And that's true. That's true

Rosy lips and high heel shoes
Tight dress and a ring
Long hair and curvy hips
And that's true. And that's true.
And that's true. That's true

Track Name: Looking Good
Looking Good
(Jim Curnutte)

I've known you for days
Might even be years
I've known you all along
And I think I know you.

I don't want you to change
Don't re-arrange
Don't ever change
Just stay the same.
Cause you're looking good, you know you're looking fine
You know you're looking good, you really blow my mind.

Say you wanted to leave
So many times
You just couldn't put in
You, couldn't get it right.
But you're looking good, you know you're looking fine
You know you're looking good, you know you blow my mind, my mind.

Know you're looking good, know you're looking fine
You know you're looking good, you really blow my mind

I don't want you to leave
Oh, won't you stay
I know I can change
Don't go away.
Know you're looking good, you know you're looking fine
You really blow my mind, you know you're looking good,

Know you're looking good, you know you're looking fine
You really blow my mind, you know you're looking good
You're looking good

Track Name: What Am I Going To Do
What Am I Going To Do
Jim Curnutte

What do you say, when somebody takes Love away from you
Puts it in their shoe, and they laugh at you

What do you say, if they make you laugh or they make you cry
What do we want from life, do we want to laugh or do we want to cry
Well I don't know what I want for me

I've been wondering,
When the daylight goes will I be sitting alone
Yes, I've been wondering,
Now what am I going to do

What am I going to do?
What am I going to do?
What am I going to do?
