Album Notes
Peter Tork is a former member of the world-famous 1960s pop group, The Monkees. Peter has also put together a number of bands in the past, including The New Monks and The Peter Tork Project. He plays a myriad of instruments, including the 5-string banjo, piano/keyboard, drums, guitar, and bass. Peter plays guitar / keys and sings lead and backup for Shoe.

Arnold Jacks, is a much sought after and well respected side man who can hold down a bass line with the best in the business. AJ joined Shoe Suede Blues in the winter of 2006 and hit the ground running. He is simply one of the most phenomenal bass players around.

Richard Michaels has shared the stage and the recording studio with such legendary artists as Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, BB King, Ike and Tina Turner, Chuck Berry, Ray Charles, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, and The Pointer Sisters. Richard has also produced music for TV shows and movies such as Ellen, Home Improvement, Unhappily Ever After, Boy Meets World, Doctor Detroit, The Last Dance, as well as TV commercials for Paul Mitchell, Coors Beer, Isuzu, and Honda - Acura. Richard plays guitar and sings lead / back up vocals for Shoe Suede Blues.

John Palmer has recorded and toured with Rockabilly legend Ronnie Dawson, appearing with Dawson on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. He has also performed with such artists as The 5th Dimension, The Diamonds, The Penguins, and Sha Na Na. John is one of the premiere Rockabilly drummers performing today.

Also on the CD is our friend, Tadj Galleran, on keyboards, harmonica, vocals; Jeri Lynne, organ solo and vocals on Saved By the Blues; James Lee Stanley, vocals and knobs.

Long before "Peter Tork" became a legendary part of the prefab phenomenon known as the “The Monkees,” he was a well-respected musician/artist in the burgeoning New York folk and blues scene. Peter’s gift for playing a plethora of instruments (bass, guitar, keyboard, banjo,and french horn) generated high demand for his services as a sideman/back-up artist. Peter knocked around for several hungry years in the mid-60’s, hanging and performing with the likes of John Phillips, Steven Stills, Dave Van Ronk, Van Dyke Parks and Arthur Lee. The list goes on.

The fateful call, which would change Peter's life forever, came in June of 1965. Friend and confidante, Steven Stills, not quite hitting the mark with his own audition, rung his buddy, urging him to give it a go. Twice. Stills remarks to the producers that he knew 'just the man to fill the bill', were spot on. Peter aced the audition for a what would become a ground breaking multimedia project centered on a zany, young, rock/pop band - styled as THE American answer to the Beatles. The results were stellar and changed the popular music and television biz forever.

Peter, never totally satisfied with prefab fame even at the height of his pop icon status, stuck to his roots as a starving artist. He could be found frequently jamming with bands, learning and honing his chops. Music legend Jimi Hendrix jammed with Peter on several occasions, calling Peter - “The most talented Monkee."

Peter has continued his solo career through the years, performing with his own bands, writing and recording and also making numerous guest appearances on a variety of TV programs.

Peter realized a real love affair with the blues sometime during the 1990's. The result of that love is called Shoe Suede Blues.

Defining Peter Tork and Shoe Suede Blues is akin to describing the history of popular music. Band mates Richard Mikuls, John Palmer and Arnold Jacks have shared the stage with some of the most influential recording artists of the last 50 years: Ray Charles, BB King, Ronnie Dawson, Chaka Kahn and Wanda Jackson, just to mention a few.

Though Peter’s band of seasoned pros, Shoe Suede Blues delivers a heartfelt, soulful, uplifting and quite unforgettable mixture, divined from their vision of what music is all about.

Peter Tork and Shoe Suede Blues...witness that the heart and soul of music lives.

Great band, great music!
Bought the C.D. after having seen a performance by Peter and SSB. Peter and his band are a gifted group of musicians and this is clearly evident on "Saved by the Blues". It is a C.D. that will have you rock'n, smiling, dancing and enjoying the blues!


Absolutely superb!
There are no superlatives up to the job of describing this outstandingly brilliant album. It's everything that's great about life, and I can't wait for the next one!

Simply Amazing
Peter Tork and Shoe Suede Blues are guaranteed to keep your toes tapping. Peter has really found his niche singing the blues. Pick up this CD before they're all gone!

The best verson off Route 66 i have ever heard.

I bought this CD solely on the strength of Peter Tork's 1992 solo album and was completely blown away.

The band is on fire the whole way through, and on tracks like "Help Me" and "Route 66," Peter proves that he can make his (formerly?) under-rated voice do anything he pleases.

My sister recommended I get this cd and she was right about how wonderful the music is performed. Would love to see them live!

It's A Keeper
In my opinion “Saved By The Blues” definitely sets a groove that is filled with soulful undertones, it has an essence of pop and a somewhat sultry sassy saunter at times; this album presents a vast range of sound & styles within the “blues” genre’ - It’s a firm stepping stone set in the musical path of Shoe Suede Blues.
