Album Notes
"Lucky Guy," my first solo record, came out in May of 1989. Back then everybody used a lot of reverb on their recordings; this showed how serious we were about things. Coincidentally, in May of 1981 my band had a single in the Billboard Magazine Hot 100, and in May of 2001 my second solo album "Jeff Now", eventually named 2001/2002 Best Indie Recording by the Providence Journal, was released. I think that I can say with confidence that we probably did use a great deal of reverb on these other recordings as well.

I have a certain affection for the songs on "Lucky Guy", especially with Bruce Millard's guitar stylings. So, while we're getting ready to record some new songs, I thought that it would be fun to reissue "Lucky Guy." Steve Meyer used all of his magic, and his oven, in order to rescue the original tape for re-mastering and, over my protests, refused to add any more reverb....I still like these songs, I hope you will too.

Jeff Keithline: Lucky Guy (Wigwax, originally issued in 1989)

If Jeff Keithline is a lucky guy, (and, no, I can’t corroborate this), it’s for at least one reason: the guy can write tuneful songs. He proved so back in the early ’80s with his launching-pad band Silverado, who recorded three discs for RCA. In the meantime he played with Steppenwolf, Tom Waits, Dave Mason, and others before cutting loose and going it alone. Lucky Guy, Jeff’s solo debut, came out back in 1989. It’s a half-dozen cool, good-humored songs full of crack performances, melody, and solid, organic production. Also, check out Jeff Now, Keithline’s 2001 follow-up.
