Also the blue grass in 'Get Me Out of This Mess' featuring the mandolin of seasoned sessionman Paul Prestopino. And the rockin' country within 'Plastic Money Man' with banjo and dobro by Paul Prestopino. Not forgetting the short pop and jangling guitars of 'Love Needs No Explanation'. And lastly, sweet 'Christine' and mood ballad 'Waterfall of Love'. 13 lucky songs in a little more then 30 minutes.
