L.S.U. | Dogfish Jones

Another rock opera by Michael. This one has 70s sea-tale feel to it, whatever that means. This was also a very family-oriented album, as Michael’s Dad and Daughter contributed songs. Flying Tart went under before this was released widely, so there have been several attempts through the years to re-issue it.According to Knott, he sent the cover painting into the label and they printed it on the cover backwards. So instead of the cover painting representing “Dog – Fish – Jones,” it represents “Jones – Fish – Dog.”

    Great, great album. I was lucky enough to find this on at Family Christian Stores the day it came out right before Flying Tart’s demise. Probably the most layered vocals on any Knott album.
