Album Notes
NOW - Click on the track sample in the left column - That's all you need in order to decide to get this CD.

I'm not saying you have to have this music. That's your decision, but imagine the pleasure you can have...

Over a span of decades playing at the very pinnacles of show business, Clay Cotton's piano gained the respect, loyalty & musical companionship of legends like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Janis Joplin, Mick Jagger, Bonnie Raitt, Elvis, Charlie Musselwhite, Jerry Garcia, Cher, John Lee Hooker, Hank Williams Jr, Chuck Berry , Grace Slick , Boz Scaggs, Robert Cray, Steve Ray Vaughn, Jim Morrison, Etta James, Muddy Waters, Tina Turner and scores of others...

The irresistible tracks in this treasured collection are stellar examples of Clay Cotton's rip-snortin', off-the-cuff, good-time piano playing and singing, plus smoky, poignant ballads.

This is the same, remarkable music which earned Clay both global media recognition & raving hoards of near-rabid fans who now eagerly gobble up each & every available recording unearthed from Clay's pleasure chest of archived tracks.

This batch is composed of seamlessly-interwoven, boogie woogie blues-based tracks, marked by Clay's rich, sexy, vocals.

Most of these tunes are from the legendary "Santa Fe sessions of 1989", recorded just before Clay contracted the crippling Multiple Sclerosis which plagues him to this day and prevents him from ever again playing piano. As Clay puts it, "Multiple Sclerosis: If you don't have a sense of humor... It isn't very funny..."

Naturally, Clay's condition makes each one of these tracks a super-valued collector's item.

And each & every tune here is flat out guaranteed to inspire & uplift you to higher heights of human achievement, unbridled bliss & wild abandon. Period.

Just ask anyone who owns Clay's first CD, RoughStuff...

These recordings may never be released for mass consumption on the open market - This is a limited, time-sensitive. web-based window of opportunity. So right now is the best time to add these amazing pieces to your own, personal treasure trove of this man's unparalled work. And this is a limited pressing, so ya gotta get 'em while they last.

In the end, many of your best times were musical, right? So you owe it to yourself to do yourself a favor and load up right now on Clay Cotton's smokin' sounds...

In the words of the great Joseph Campbell, "We are so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget that the inner value, the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it's all about."

So go for it.
