Recorded around the date when I was born

Duke Ellington was at #1 on the R&B charts the day I was born :)

soulpope, do you know the meaning of the title of that record?  Why "Lullaby for a Monster"?  (I downloaded it from emusic.com, so I don't have the liner notes.) 

I'm wondering if it has anything to do with the town in Holland.  Is it that Monster?

Or is it just a synonym for "virtuoso instrumentalist" -- presumably NHØP? Or maybe Dex himself?

Just curious.

Odd as it seems, I believe Gordon was referring to his very young son.  I interviewed Dexter around that time, and his wife and child sat outside the studio, and he lovingly referred to the boy (maybe 2ish years old?) as the Little Monster.  He was indeed an active lad...

Perhaps "Lullaby" was an attempt to quiet him down?

Oh, I see. That makes perfect sense. Thanks Ted!

This record's been killing me.  I'd never really gotten inside it until lately.  But now I think it's one of Wayne's best records.
