Album Notes
Lotus Dickey was very proud of this studio recording of 14 of his original songs, newly mastered for CD in 2005 by Grey Larsen. Produced with spark, pluck and vivid imagination by Bob Lucas, the arrangements flesh out a richness that Lotus had always imagined for his music. Lotus sings lead on all 14 songs and plays guitar and fiddle as well. Among the 20 guest musicians are Bob Lucas, Pete Sutherland, Grey Larsen, Janne Henshaw, Malcolm Dalglish, Willy Schwarz, Mirian Sturm (of the John Mellencamp band), Jeff White and Paul Tyler. The 20-voice "Ten O'Clock Chorus" sings back up on "Indiana, My Home Sweet Home". This recording was made with the financial support of the Indiana Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Lotus Dickey (1911-1989) was a beloved southern Indiana traditional singer, fiddler, and guitarist, and a prolific and gifted songwriter. Lotus’ death came sooner than his friends expected, but Grey Larsen, Nan McEntire and Janne Henshaw (with the help of many others) put together The Lotus Dickey Songbook, which was first published in 1995 by Indiana University Press.
