Busting Barriers with Music


This compilation came together in Canton, Michigan in 1986. The idea was to “heighten awareness of the ‘abilities’ of seniors and handicappers” (yes “abilities” was written in quotes) by pairing up senior citizens and disabled people with (washed up at this point) Michigan musicians. Highlights include a guitar-heavy version of “The Little Drummer Boy” featuring a DEAF drummer, and a slo mo cover of “The Shape of Things to Come” featuring a Vietnam vet suffering from Agent Orange exposure on vocals.
