Album Notes
This is Mason Ruffner's first album originally released on vinyl and cassette in 1985. It was voted top 10 of the year by the New York Daily News!

Here is a quote by Bob Dylan about Mason Ruffner:

"Ft. Worth guitarist and singer Mason Ruffner played in Bourbon Street clubs like the Old Absinthe Bar. He was a regional star, had a high pompadour, a gold tooth smile with a tiny guitar inlaid. He had a few records out and some explosive licks with funky edges, rockabilly tremolo-influenced, wrote songs, too, said that he'd hung around libraries reading Rimbaud and Baudelaire to get his language down. He also told me that as a teenager he had played with Memphis Slim. I thought I had something in common with him there. I'd played with Big Joe Williams when I was coming up. Mason had some fine songs. One of them had the line, "You do good things for people and it just makes them bad."

I would have thought about recording it if I didn't have my own originals.»

Bob Dylan (From the book "Chronicles Vol. 1" by Bob Dylan)
