Album Notes
"Howlin' At The Moon" is a concept album. The title track, written by Jim Ratts and John McEuen was a bluegrass hit for legendary picker Sam Bush and had the honor of being #79 in Bluegrass Unlimited's top 200 songs of the decade. All the songs celebrate the driving force that motivate artists and musicians. Bob Shane helped Jim write a retrospective of the Kingston Trio's career called "Every Inch of the Way", and Jim's "Ozark Night" about the Dillards was featured on their Grammy nominated "Let It Fly" release. This project features elaborate production, top-notch singing and playing, and a drop-dead gorgeous package design (Jim's wife Salli, the girl in the group, designed Steve Martin's award winning album "The Crow", with her partner Greg Carr). A book of poetry by Charles John Quarto, whose works have been used by Stephen Stills, Michael Martin Murphey, Waylon Jennings, Tony Rice, and Don Williams, is also included. It's an uncommon presentation in every way.
“Even someone who disdains bluegrass music cannot find flaws in this album’s execution and presentation. From the absolutely impeccable artwork to the phenomenal production value, to the spot-on playing... “Howlin’ at the Moon” is most certainly a best-foot-forward project, and one that pays homage to a softer side of bluegrass...” Brian Johnson -The Marquee-
“...from the opening refrains of the intro penned by Jim, my ears, my inner eye, my memories of my youth, and my heart are fully engaged in one of the most beautiful musical journies I’ve ever taken. ...I’m ready to declare my unbridled discipleship.” Chris K. -The Colorado Sound-
Sometimes a gem stands out... I can't rave enough about this album. -S. Ramm
"...Fantastic"-Steve Martin, actor, musician
"Jimmy Ratts Does it again"-John McEuen
