If you've ever seen a live performance of Bob Bryan and Tim Sample performing bits from this album, you'll know how much fun they had recording it––and remembering their very dear and very funny friend, Marshall Dodge, as they did. Marshall and Tim had discussed doing such an album together, but Marshall's tragic death ended that plan. So Bob Bryan stepped in to record this "Downeast Foreign Languasge Course" with Tim, and Ithe album soon became an favorite of theirs––and of countless listeners all over the country.
