Album Notes
I have now been playing guitar for half a century. And I first began playing clubs in Louisiana forty years ago... how time flies. And I hope to begin playing "live" again soon!

When I started working as a "suit" in the music business at the age of 32 I quit performing for the most part but I continued to write songs until this day. But my songs were always "produced" and arranged in my studio within sometimes huge multi-track sessions.
Since opening my Grouse House Studio up here in the Catskills near Woodstock New York... I have specialized in recording acoustic musicians such as singer-songwriters, jazz, and Americana artists. And I've learned a lot about recording this way and wanted to apply it to a recording of my own. So I practiced an eleven song set spanning decades of songs for several weeks and then sat down in front of the microphones in my "guitar cabin" and knocked out this "live" (no overdubs) recording... complete with dialogue containing interesting "tid bits" about my life and songs.

No audience members were injured, harmed, or utilized in any way in this recording! It's just me... a guitar... and some really terrific microphones! Nine of the eleven songs were done on the final night... or morning... in one big swoop at around 4:00AM when I was suffering from insomnia. So my "voice" is rough in places. But at this point in my life... it is what it is! And MANY of my favorite songwriters have "questionable pipes". I do love singing.

Four songs are from my very earliest Baton Rouge & New Orleans club years... plus seven others that span forty years of songs including The White Rabbit's "BIG NUMBER" from my psychedelic pop musical "Dreams For Alice".
Most are also very personal... including "I Feel Alive"... which is about Sony Music and how the day that they fired me was the happiest day in my entire life! Free at Last!

And there is a song about my father's 1932 Martin mandolin that he played as a teenager in the band "The Red Hot Rambers" in the 1930s in Shreveport Louisiana.

And there is also "Tonight I Want to Believe"... written during the 911 attacks on NYC while I was living in a Manhattan highrise.

Plus there are six sections of dialogue where I talk about memories and these songs that have been a part of my entire life.

And being solo and "live"... it's the sound I used to get when working solo in clubs across South Louisiana from 1976 to 1984. So I hope old friends from South Louisiana will find this a fun listen!

This was recorded using one single Neumann U-87 Vocal Microphone... A Sure 141 Microphone on the guitar... and everything being captured in stereo by a Royer 27 Microphone out in front. Through Avalon Tube Pre-Amps into Apogee A to D converters at 24/96. Recorded in my "Guitar Cabin" basement room @ The Grouse House Studio using ProTools.

The entire 11 original song set was performed on a "custom shop" Breedlove acoustic guitar signed by Mr. Breedlove himself... Rosewood back... a BEAUTIFUL guitar... and a breeze to play too!
