Laugh and Grow Fat
by Ill-Mo Boys
Curtis Buckhannon, Jim Nelson, and Geoff Seitz

We've been playing together now since 1985. After ten years of driving 300 miles to practice and play dances, Jim finally moved to St. Louis about five years ago. This has made getting together to practice more convenient, although it still doesn't happen all that much. We do, however, play more often. We haven't done any recording in nearly ten years and figure now is as good a time as any. So what you have here is our third recording in fifteen years and our first CD. In choosing material for this album, we've been a little more introspective this time around, looking for the most part, a little closer to home. Missouri has long been home to some of the finest fiddlers anywhere and we've been fortunate in meeting many of them over the years. From them, we've learned some nice tunes from all four corners of the state and points in between. We've included some of our current favorites here. To top it off, we've thrown in a few songs we've been singing by some of the early greats of country music. We hope you will sit back, kick off your shoes, and join us Ill-Mo style...while we laugh and grow fat...
