Album Notes
Singer/songwriter Danny O'Keefe began his musical career in the Minnesota coffeehouse scene in the 1960's In 1969, a meeting with Buffalo Springfield manager Charles Greene led to a telephone audition with Ahmet Ertegun, President of Atlantic Records, resulting in O'Keefe's first record deal. Atlantic Records released O'Keefe (1972) which featured the top-ten classic hit, "Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues", followed by the classic Breezy Stories (1973).
Since its initial thrust onto the airwaves, "Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues" has been recorded by Elvis Presley, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Leon Russell, Charlie Rich, Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie McCoy, Cab Calloway, Earl Klugh, and Chet Atkins among others. Mel Torme performed it on the hit television series, "Night Court" and, most recently, it was recorded by Dwight Yoakam for his Under The Covers release, and featured in the film Wild Things. Between l975 and 1979, O'Keefe recorded a third album for Atlantic Records and two albums for Warner Bros. Records: So Long Harry Truman (1975, Atlantic), American Roulette (1977, Warner Bros.), and The Global Blues (1979, Warner Bros.).
In 1985, O'Keefe released The Day To Day (Coldwater Records), which was re-released in 1989 as Redux (Beachwood/Chameleon Records). The singles, "Along For The Ride" and "Someday" were charted in both the NAC and the AC charts. A video of "Along For The Ride" was aired on VH1.
Throughout the 1970s and into 80's, O'Keefe toured with many well-known artists and friends including, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Jimmy Buffet, Jessie Colin Young, Maria Muldaur, Linda Ronstadt, Loggins and Messina, and the Hollies. He has also performed on the same bill with acts such as Bruce Springsteen, YES, Tom Waits, John Hammond, Little Feat, Rita Coolidge, Dr. John, The Beach Boys, and others.
Many of O'Keefe's songs have been recorded by well-known artists such as Jackson Browne, "The Road"; John Denver, "Along For The Ride" (co-written with Bill Braun); Judy Collins. "Angel Spread Your Wings"; Sheena Easton, "Next To You" (co-written by O'Keefe and George Merrill); David Lindley, "The Jimmy Hoffa Memorial Bldg. Blues," "More Than Eva Braun", "Well, Well, Well" (co-written with Bob Dylan), and “Jody” (co-written with Bill Braun) ; Jesse Colin Young, "On The Edge" (co-written with Young) and "Catfish"; David Mallett, Molly O’Brien, and Alison Krauss, "Never Got Off The Ground" (co-written with Mallett). The sensational young bluegrass group, Nickel Creek, recorded O’Keefe’s and Tim O’Brien’s, “When You Come Back Down” on their first Sugar Hill release. Tim O’Brien has recorded both “When You Come Back Down” and O’Keefe and Fred Tackett’s “Into the West”.
Recently Ben Harper and the Blind Boys of Alabama recorded the O’Keefe/Dylan composition for their Grammy award-winning CD, “There Will Be A Light”. A live CD recorded at the Apollo Theatre has recently been released. Bonnie Raitt has recently released a cd/dvd recording of her VH1 special with a performance with Ben Harper of “Well, Well, Well”. Alan Jackson’s newest release “Like Red On A Rose” has a song written by Danny and Tim Krekl called “Anywhere On Earth You Are”. It was produced by Alison Krauss.
O'Keefe's album, Runnin' From The Devil was released in February 2000 along with the re-release of The Day To Day. Runnin' From The Devil is a multi-tiered album covering themes of love, loss, temptation and social responsibility. The album represents some of the best of what audiences have come to expect from O'Keefe, complete with heartfelt messages wrapped in soulful troubadour stylings.
O'Keefe is as well known in environmental circles as he is in musicians' circles. His inner music naturally led him to an appreciation of songbirds, which have inspired both his music and his activism. In 1998, O'Keefe founded the Songbird Foundation, which seeks to protect songbirds and their habitats that are being destroyed by deforestation caused by non-sustainable coffee growing practices in Latin America. The Foundation educates and encourages coffee-drinkers to drink sustainably grown coffee rather than sun-grown coffee. Sustainably grown coffee is shade grown, organic, and Fair Trade.
Danny’s new recording, “In Time”, is now available. Two and half years in the making, it is a collection of moving reflections of a life lived in music. Check the website www.dannyokeefe.com from time to time as new poems and writing, as well as Danny’s touring schedule.

Danny O’Keefe – In Time – Bicameral Songs
There are too few singer/ songwriters the calibre of Danny O’Keefe. He was having his first and only hit ‘Goodtime Charlie’s Got The Blues’ when I met him in NY in September ’72 and at that time everyone wanted to know who he was. I’ve been a big fan ever since and though a wide spectrum of artists from Donny Hathaway, Elvis Presley, the Blind Boys of Alabama to Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt have recorded his songs and he was well respected in the Music Biz, Danny never rose to the heights that one so talented deserved to. He had few single releases but was considered an album artist. O’Keefe was where it all really came together followed by a series of great albums including Breezy Stories, So Long Harry Truman, and even after leaving Atlantic, Warner issued the superb American Roulette and Global Blues. After this there was a 10-year gap in which The Day To Day was issued on the poorly distributed Coldwater Records. This album was reissued with minor changes in 1989 as Redux (the first on CD). A further 10 years passed and Miramar issued Runnin’ From The Devil and re-issued The Day To Day. Then in 2003 came Don’t Ask, a shared project with Bill Braun. Only then did a couple of classic compilations appear from Rhino and Raven. In Time was released last year and it’s really great to have a dozen new songs to celebrate and enjoy. This fine album was written between 2000-2008 (with a number of different co-authors) and recorded with producer Mick Conley in Nashville from 2005. All the songs from ‘The First Time’ to ‘A Bedtime Story’ relate a different part of the journey. I particularly like ‘Maybe Next Time’, ‘When You Come Back Down’, ‘(We’re All) Strangers Here’ ‘Last Call’ and ‘A Bedtime Story’. As his career may have proved, Danny O’Keefe is not for everyone but if you’ve been around the block a few times and are not looking for sunshine in everything, his poetry may touch and inspire you. It’s always done so to me. I see like CD Baby, Danny’s recently updated his website www.dannyokeefe.com for those mature readers who would like to find out more about this unique artist. In the meantime why not give In Time a listen.
