ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
They're called Daddy because they are. No pretending these are young pups who wouldn't have kids yet. Besides, there ain't no young pups who can play guitar like Daddy.

Sure, they've had their individual successes. Will Kimbrough has garnered the Americana Music Association Instrumentalist of the Year. Tommy Womack brought home the Nashville Scene Critic's Poll for "Best Song." But together they're nothing but Daddy.

They met back in the '80s, when Will was fronting Will & the Bushmen and Tommy was in Government Cheese, both of them chasing that original college rock dream. Both bands folded at about the same time and in 1992, the two of them found themselves in the now-legendary band called the bis-quits. They wowed Nashville audiences for two years and even made a record for John Prine's Oh Boy! label before calling it quits.

Since then, Will and Tommy have sought every opportunity to play together while juggling respective solo careers, session gigs, road gigs and, yes, being Daddies. Of course, we all know about the constraints of time. Which makes this record something of a miracle - these musicians in this place in this little window of time.

Tattooing the Ludwigs is the illustrious writer, Paul Griffith, one of the greatest, behind-the-beat, New Orleans-style thumpers in the world. World traveler by way of Massachusetts Dave Jacques plays bass, because if he's good enough to play with John Prine he's good enough for Daddy. Working double-time as keyboardist and engineer is John Deaderick, whose work on the upright has received the Dixie Chick seal of approval (yep, he was right there onstage when Natalie spoke her mind).

Then, of course, there's Will and Tommy, who use Daddy as an excuse to explore every musical territory they've ever wanted to visit: from up-tempo gospel ("Glory Be"), wailing blues ("Slide it In"), redneck country ("Cousin Darryl"), boozy, shit-kicking ambience ("Happy In Your Skin", "I Don't Like It"), full-bore rock ("Cold Chill", "Nightmares"), ragtime humor ("I Miss Ronald Reagan"), low-down gospel ("Gloryland") and some things that defy description ("Martin Luther"). A particular highlight is Daddy's appropriation of the bis-quits' "The Powers That Be" which sails right into the Faces' "Ooh La La." This kind of spontaneous magic only comes when something is completely unrehearsed, as this cut was. From track to track, one thing is consistent--the sound of two guitarists being as loud, or as funky, or as low-down as they want to be, pushing each other on, nudging the sound forward to a place higher and farther than either could reach alone.

"Daddy at the Women's Club" is exactly that: a debut album recorded live at the Frankfort (Kentucky) Women's Club building in front of 100 or so devoted internet fans and friends. It's two of Nashville's finest guitarists, indeed five of Nashville's finest musicians, who went to Kentucky to make a record like they wanted to make, where no one could tell them they couldn't.

The result is pure music, pure joy, and pure entertainment. And no dirty words! Bring the kids. Daddy's for everyone.
