Album Notes
Roy Book Binder's new CD is no doubt his best! It has been a long journey for the artist who first recorded for the Blue Goose label back in the late 1960's after being discovered at a Gaslight Cafe hootenanny in Greenwich Village! Over the years, Book Binder has slowly developed from an interpreter of his heroes' blues to a songwriter whose own compositions have been recorded by such luminaries as Jorma Kaukonen, Vidar Busk, and most recently by Ann Rabson & Bob Margolin.

Not since Jerry Douglas produced his first Rounder CD Bookeroo in 1988 do we find Roy in the company of such a fine ensemble of musicians..... and he sure takes to it! This music tells the story of a man who has lived "the life" for over 40 years and has enjoyed every day of it! The Book and his cohorts are having fun and you're bound to feel the same when you hear this new music.... Plenty of fingerpickin' guitar, wailing clarinet, stand-up bass, drums and even some hot lap steel guitar by special guest, Damon Fowler.

The title song "The Good Book" reminds listeners about the simple lessons we learned as youngsters. "Step Right Up" is a reminisce about Roy's medicine shows friends and their days in the business. Hacksaw Harney, who stayed with Roy in NYC, inspired the instrumental piece "Hacksaw". The song, "They Called Him Junior", recalls the life of Robert Lockwood.

With this new all original CD, Roy fulfills one of his dreams! Hope you enjoy!

Great acoustic album
First album I bought here. Mixture of blues and folk. The clarinet adds a special color. Glad I discovered this site.
