ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
As a retired academic with a long history of playing rock 'n roll in the 50's and 60's I was delighted to return to making music after a 45 years hiatus. I jokingly refer to my songs as "post-academic" blues with lots of country thrown in. My interest in music has always been diverse, but I find myself most at home with traditional country music. For example, I was inspired to write the song "Too Late Now" when George Jones, one of my vocal heroes, passed away.

Many of my songs have strong story lines. All life is enriched by stories, and I like to explore the stories in my songs. I've been told by many listeners that this gives my songs a richness grounded in reality that goes "straight to the heart." I also get great pleasure from writing songs about folks who live on the margins of society, and those who are coping with the aging process. But I'm not always serious in my song writing. I believe in the adage "a person who laughs, lasts," so many of my songs have touches of humor in them.

And I do love to perform before live audiences...to drink in the energy that comes with live performances...to be able to share my musical adventures "eyeball to eyeball" with real people. This is where the real joy of music lies!
