Album Notes
The very first Jim Pipkin (or as he was called then, Trooper) album to be recorded. This was only on cassette, to be sold at live shows or by mail in the late 1980s.

The entire project was recorded in just four hours, for a total studio cost of $240US, mostly single takes with little or no multitracking. The effects are kinda cheesy, and it was obviously cobbled together by a struggling artist with zero capital and a need for something to sell at his gigs.

Despite that, it remains in high demand by Pipkin fans, due to the wide and eclectic mix of original tunes. From the Bluegrass of "65 Til Sunrise" to the modern medieval ballad "Fruit of the Yew", it has a unique energy.

Many thanks to Scott Leon for his expertise in salvaging this music from a battered old 1989 cassette tape!
