Camp Warren Community,

The time has come! I am thrilled (and relieved) to announce the official release of Half Moon Sampler Vol. I by The Camp Warren Band. I am truly inspired by the eagerness of so many Warrenites to volunteer their time to support this project - music is such an integral part of camp, and now we can enjoy it all year round. I would like to say a few things about the album.

First, I would like to thank Kevin Dorsey, my partner in crime on this endeavor, for all the time spent helping me record, mix, and master nearly every track. I want to thank Amy Gensmer for the beautiful artwork, and Laura Gensmer for helping me promote the album and collect the wonderful musician bios that have been so fun to read. Finally, I want to thank all the incredible CW musicians without whom there would be no music.

I would also like to mention that there are many great musicians who were unable to be on the album for various reasons - but all is not lost! This is only the beginning, and I hope that this will be the first of many recordings to be released by our talented musical community.

And with that, the album is released! The link below will take you to a page where you can purchase and download the Half Moon Sampler Vol. 1. Again, ALL proceeds go to the Camp Warren Scholarship Fund, so please take that into consideration when deciding how much to donate.

Thanks and goodnight.

Reid Petit

Track Name: General Sherman
He lives in half moon, general Sherman is his name
Don't believe he'll change your tune. Cross his path you'll never be the same
Mama was a pike named Lola, daddy a sturgeon called Sam
A culvert full of radioactive waste is where his life began

Oh general Sherman! Whooooa he's the biggest fish around
Shrouded in darkness and mystery, always watching never making a sound
Well yeah he's a mutant! Whooooa but that's ok
All you campers better watch yourselves or the general get you one day

He's missing chromosome 22 and that gives him bones of steal
Don't swim too late at night or you'll be his next meal
The mutation made him huge, over 60 feet long
At over a million pounds he'd be a match for King Kong


Some have seen him, whoa, some never will
But know he's lurking to give our souls a chill
Those campers who went missing they won't see another day
They're in his belly, or waiting to be eatin' in the general's lair in back bay

Track Name: Camp Warren Trail (Live)
I want to hide away out beside Camp Warren trail
Moonlight as bright as day, out beside Camp Warren trail
There's where I'll settle down, in peace where all is fine
in a little hut, just build for 9, tucked away in the heart of the pine

There's where all friends are true, in the good old summer time
There's where all skies are blue and all nature is in rhyme
My pals are waiting, they're pals that never fail
Waiting patiently, to welcome me, out beside Camp Warren trail
