ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album was recorded in the RiverDog Studios in Lambertville, NJ, engineered by Joe Hosey. I was recorded with one mike for both voice and guitar. One position for my big Gibson j-200, and slightly altered for my 1927 National Tri-cone. To help relax and to get a groove going I followed the lead of one of my heroes Rev. Gary Davis, doing only one take of each tune. Not disimilar to how much of this great music was originally recorded. Then my producer ( also tub bass and drums) Jeffrey Scott Hartley dubbed some of his stuff over my cuts. Later, fabulous harp player Guy DeRosa added to the tracks too. In three nights we got 33 tunes and picked our favorites for this album.

To say that I am pleased would be the understatement of the year. Years ago I did a bunch of recording for Nick Perles of Yazoo and BlueGoose records, unfortunately Nick got sick and we never finished the album. Richard Nevins of Shanachie records bought Nicks record collection, but no one knows where my tapes went, prob in the trash, oh well. So this record really represents my first serious recording in a long time.

You will be the judge, but I think my voice is the best it has ever sounded. I've learned not to strain, but to sing easy with a good mike , and 63 years of living in this old world brings some kind of depth you don't get any other way. This record is just coming out, but I'm already jonesing to record again. I met Ernie Hawkins about ten years ago, and his knowledge of Gary Davis' guitar playing has really helped free up my right hand, and I'm having a ball playing.

Years ago a wise person told me that my real job in this life was to be a "resonator", and I have always felt that was the truth. I love to sing, I love to feel the body of my guitar vibrate against my body, Hope you dig my music. Many of these songs are taken from other artists I admire, but in the way of the blues I feel they are truly my songs, other wise I wouldn't sing them. Warmly, Geoff Caldwell "Bluesgeoff"
