ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What Do Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jerry Garcia, Hank Williams Jr., B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, Carlos Santana, Chuck Berry, Boz Skaggs, Charlie Musselwhite, Taj Mahal, Robert Cray, Etta James and scores of other music legends have in common...?

Answer: They got hooked on the amazing, little-known PIANO MANIA style of pianoman Clay Cotton - and so will YOU. "...Because this CD is the happiest piano playing you ever want to hear! Pure soul in motion. Sheer euphoria."

That's right! - Right now, you can hear the irresistible sample tracks on the left-hand side of this page, then I suggest that you get your own copy of this priceless masterwork at any cost, because it's worth 10,000 non-Cotton cds! You get a lifetime of smiles! "This is the most joyful piano music ever conceived - a national treasure," say some - - So...

FIRST - - - SCROLL DOWN & READ THE SPONTANEOUS CD REVIEWS ON THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE. - - BELIEVE THEM.

SECOND - - - LISTEN TO THE AMAZING SAMPLE TRACKS ON THE TOP LEFT LEFT HERE. JOY IN ACTION.

THIRD - - - I DARE YOU NOT TO ORDER RIGHT NOW - YOU CAN GET YOUR OWN CD + SEVERAL MORE AS GIFTS, SO YOU CAN SPREAD THE JOY TO FRIENDS & FAMILY!

But remember, this special, collectors' CD offer is limited, and it may be withdrawn at any time, so act right now while you can. You won't regret this day as long as you live - Guaranteed.

If you believe in the power of goodtime music, the power of love, joy, action, precision, impeccability, unbridled passion, wild abandon & torrid bliss, then this CD is clearly yours. As the reviewer says, "This CD is an awe-inspiring expression of the highest impulses of human nature from 'a man possessed', a man who gave his entire working life to pleasing others through smile-based music... Imagine: We get this awesome music, and Clay gets our heartfelt financial support to help with his costly health care - This is a win/win for all!"

Clay Cotton launched his pro music career in 1967 with blues legend Charlie Musslewhite, and after 20+ years at the top, in 1989 Clay recorded these amazing tracks to capture the spirit of his solo playing - And trust me: it's "Joy On Tap - Period! Piano and vocals straight from heaven..."

Then just one year later in 1990, Clay was unexpectedly stricken with Multiple Sclerosis. Ouch...

And Hey - As Clay puts it, "If you don't have a sense of humor, it isn't very funny..."

But not all is for naught: Now you can own a limited-edition, collector's copy of this rare recording of Clay Cotton's most amazing, solo piano/vocal work.

BTW, here's what some music legends have said about Clay over the years:


"Ahhh... What a GAS it was jammin' again tonight! Man, you're a flat-out piano maniac!"
-- Jimi Hendrix, 1969

"Clay's a monster on down-home, boogie-woogie. And he's with ME!"
-- Janis Joplin, 1967
( For the record, Clay swears the only bad blood ever between he & Janis was due to his ongoing, respectful refusal to sleep with her... :)

"Hey! Clay and I are jammin' here! And, man, if you don't get it, you're not invited..."
-- Jerry Garcia, 1967

"Geez! This cat is WAY TOO HOT!"
-- Chuck Berry, 1970

"I asked him, but he won't tour with us. I suppose we're too showy..."
-- Mick Jagger, 1973

"Clay always comes through for me. Tonight he's kickin' some serious butt. Can you hear THAT?"
-- Boz Skaggs, 1988

"Truly a crack piano player and a damn good man to boot."
-- Bonnie Raitt, 1993

"I want Clay Cotton: My SOOOOOOUL Man!"
-- Etta James, 1983

"Best blues piano man I've worked with - ever."
-- Robben Ford ( guitarist with George Harrison, Bob Dylan and many others), 1996

And hey - When you own this rare CD, you have a piece of history from one of the best, 20th-century pianomen who ever touched a keyboard. Once you get this CD, you'll keep it close by for good.

And at the same time, you help out a good and loving spirit who, tragically, will probably never play piano again due to the heartbreak of MS. He's played his last tune. His hands just won't do it any more. Nowadays, Clay lives quietly in Arizona with his devoted webmaster-wife, Kimberly ( see http://www.prepsmart.com ).

Clay is doing his best to get the health treatment he needs to cope with MS. But medical care in the US is costly, and healthcare expense has eaten up all his savings already, so when you order this "party-in-a-box" piano CD, you also help Clay cover a small part of his ongoing medical costs, and boy, is Clay ever grateful... This is SO cool...!

And it's a darned good feelin' all around, baby...

So... To order, just follow the instructions on this page. It's a breeze!

Sincerely,
Russ Phelps
(Music Lover, Copywriter, and Proud to be a Friend of Clay's)

PS: I recommend you order TODAY if you want a personal copy. Clay can hardly sign his name, as his fingers barely move at all ("club hands" he calls them, not like the lightening speed fingers of old! :) But if you want your copy autoraphed, he'll do it for you thru the mail once you get your own copy. So, if you want "Rough Stuff" for yourself and for someone you know, go ahead right now! Then contact Clay through the email link at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/claycotton, and you can get your copy personally signed while Clay can still manage a scribble. You'll be glad you did.

Memories of Vanessie's, Santa Fe, 1989
Clay tore it up then, was very gracious, let me sing a couple with him and I still have his card. If you're a fan of James Booker and Dr. John's solo work or like Jon Cleary or Professor Longhair you'll appreciate where this CD is coming from. It's a happy New Orleans piano party right in your car or home. I'm just glad it's been preserved... thanks to Clay and CD Baby for making it available.
