Known to millions as merely Cher's straight man and vocal partner, Sonny Bono was actually the writer and producer of most of Sonny & Cher's million-selling records.

Covering Bono's writing career from the late 50s to the early 60s, and through his psychedelic era, BONOGRAPH presents a wide range of styles and interpretations of Bono's material. Many of the bands on this CD are touring the country with Sonny Bono songs as part of their show, bringing Bono's songs to a new generation.

Bogus Records presents the material of Sonny Bono through the spirit and power of today's hippest young bands on BONOGRAPH...Sonny Gets his Share!

"Twisted but inventive"
- People

"... a whole lot of fun"
-Chicago Tribune

"BONOGRAPH elbows it's way to the top of the tribute heap, a respectful salute to a misunderstood pop icon"
- LA Reader

"BONOGRAPH is a diverting trip through the musical career of the late congressman . . ." one of the "precious few tribute albums worth owning."

 "Bogus Records has assembled a fine cast of artists to pay homage to Sonny . . . this collection is no joke and there are many tunes worthy of instant and repeated play . . . search out a copy of BONOGRAPH immediately . . ."
-The Hard Report

 "If you think that the idea of a Sonny Bono tribute disc is pretty bizarre, you're right; if you think that this is nothing more than an elaborate gag, think again. Bono has written some righteous tunes, and most all of them are on BONOGRAPH."

"Buy it today. Buy it if you remember any of these songs--you'll be surprised how fresh and timeless they are. Buy it if you've never heard of Sonny Bono, the bands on this thing are great. Whatever the reason,
just buy it. The man was cool."
-Splatter Effect

"I'm telling you-you haven't lived until you've heard the classic sounds of Sonny Bono music played by bands like [these] . . .
the music is pretty damn good . . . sit back, kick up your platform heels, rearrange your bellbottoms and dig into a 90s take on the 70s sound that once rocked a generation
as the beat went on . . ."
