Colonel Jeffery Pumpernickel: A Concept Album

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jimmy Draper
Colonel Jeffrey Pumpernickel, the indie rock opera by Portland, Oregon's Chris Slusarenko, probably won't gain recognition for its storyline, but rather for the big-name talents that have created songs specifically for the project.
