Album Notes
Many people remember the days when Johnny Cash started out with The Tennessee Two which was Luther Perkins on the electric guitar and Marshall Grant. When they went to Sun Records to record they almost half apologized for their simple bare bones sound but Sam Phillips knew that their sound was special. Cash used to sometimes put a piece of paper in his guitar strings to emulate that chucka-chucka sound that his songs were noted for. Marshall kept the bass simple and Luther stuck to plucking the lower strings on his Fender Esquire. When I wrote Howling At The Moon I heard that very sound in my head and I wanted the song to be a shout out to the Cash style. I never met Johnny Cash but I loved him since I was a boy. In fact the first time I sang solo on stage was when I got together a "Johnny Cash" band and did some of his songs at one of my High School concerts. I even dressed in black to give the full effect. Howling At The Moon was recorded in that old style. I even lowered the key a bit where it was deeper than I normally sing to get that sound. I feel that these songs were not imitations of the real deal but rather shout outs of respect to two wonderful acts from the Golden Age Of Country Music.
