Album Notes
Pat has always loved all kinds of music, from country to big band to R&B to gospel. His recordings reflect those influences. While being predominently a singer/songwriter, he also plays a pedal steel guitar, and does all of the lead guitar and keyboard work on his albums. "Let The Games Begin" is Pat's fourth album, and his first in over a year. He has worked the entire eastern seaboard with so many wonderful bands and fantastic artists over the years that all of them couldn't possibly be mentioned in this space.
Pat is a lifelong song writer, and writes with two of his brothers, Steve and Keith. All of the songs on "Let The Games Begin" were written by this songwriting trio. Of course, there have been lots of special moments, like watching our bass player fall through the stage. You're right, you'll have to ask. And there have been so many musical influences in Pat's career, including Merle Haggard, Frank Sinatra, Dick Curlees, Bill Anderson, Johnny Cash, Mel Torme, Peggy Lee, Dave Dudley and Benny Goodman. One of the biggest influences though, was his late father. Jim Jenkins, Sr. was an incredible guitar player, and taught so much to his son.

Pat is playing all of the time, with bands in Virginia, Tennessee, North and South Carolina and Kentucky. If you catch him live, he is currently playing an LDG model, 3&4, through a tubefex processor, and a Nashville 400 amp. He also uses a 77 tele deluxe.

"Let The games Begin", is a much more upbeat album, compared to the dark, "I Hate To See Me Go". There are several rollicking numbers on here, like "Cloud No 8", "One Table Away" and "He'll Never Fall In Love With You". Of course, there are a few good ballads, and maybe even a sad song or two included in this fine set. This cd would make a fine addition to you collection.

Pat Walters

Great songs, super production values, fine performances
This is a fantastic CD! The fact that these are all original compositions is absolutely astounding, with Cloud No. 8, Roger Miller on a Bad Day, One Over the Moon and Out of the Way of My Heart just superb. The production values are top-notch, excellently mixed and the perfect bed for the vocals to rest on. Pat's not Gene Watson, but he does a fine job of communicating his songs. An overall splendid effort and well worth listening to again and again.

monica woodard

a really good collection of country ballads
My favorites in this collection are: If Only You Could Love Me, and Roger Miller on a Bad Day. Good songwriting, great all around country album.

Timothy Scott

Genius composition, Makes my nerve endings tingle with musical bliss
I give this album 2 thumbs way up. I have got to admit, I didn't know of this album or artist untill I received a copy of Let The Games Begin from a friend, and I can't put it down now. Pat Jenkins' vocals, along with the steel guitar, takes me back to the essentials.
