Mr Buechner's Dream

Redirected from Mr. Buechner's Dream

Mr Buechner's Dream is the title of a 2001 double album by the rock band Daniel Amos.

Although the album includes over 30 songs, the band did not set out to record a double album. "I think Chris Colbert (the band's engineer) thought we were a little crazy. Itís my sense that the shear joy of being together again in a creative setting after a seven years absence opened the floodgates of the creativity I believe is unique to Daniel Amos", explains Taylor, the band's lyricist.

Lyrically the album reflected the tumultuous events experienced by members of the band in recent years: the passing of two young and very dear friends, including producer and studio owner Gene Eugene, cancer in Taylor's family, and in the families of other close friends.

Musically, it was like kids in candy store. DA had never been more experimental or creative in the studio.

The "Mr Buechner" referred to in the title is in fact Pulitzer Prize nominated author Frederick Buechner, who has been a major inspiration on the band's lyrics for years. The album also pays tribute to authors Walker Percy, T. S. Eliot, G. K. Chesterton, Flannery O'Connor, Lewis Carroll, and Dorothy L. Sayers.

In 2001, Daniel Amos was Terry Scott Taylor on guitars and lead vocals, Tim Chandler on bass and guitars, Greg Flesch on guitars, piano, keyboards, harmonica, accordion, and mandolin, and Ed McTaggart on drums and percussion.

All lyrics by Terry Scott Taylor, and music by Daniel Amos.
