from the introduction
"They say there ain’t no place like home…well your home is one of the institution’s “finest” so you really doubt that “they” have any clue what they’re talking about. The walls are thick and covered with damp, the pipes leaking directly overhead, the guards or stiffs are well…stiff, and the showers are a lesson in colonic exploration that you never want to learn. But all is not as it seems, you’re getting out…tonight! Well you would be…if you could only get your plan and the other inmates to play ball.
Hard Time Blues is a tribute to life behind those county bars and especially, to every prion escape-failed or successful. Let’s see if you can get all the way from incarceration to beautiful shit stinking freedom."
