Album Notes
Produced specifically for the 2005 Art Of The Motorcycle exhibition, these fourteen songs flow like a movie soundtrack about the open road. Apart from the rockin' remake of the classic "Born To Be Wild" performed by Jim Dandy of Black Oak Arkansas fame, entertaining tunes like Ann Rabson's "I Want To Hop On Your Harley" and Wally Ford's "A Harley Someday" are sure to crack a smile. This diverse CD is mostly blues and rock, but includes a jazzy version of "King Of The Road" by Memphis artist Billy Gibson, as well as the timeless folk ballad "1952 Vincent Black Lightning" performed by Eddie Dattel. Charles Ponder's "Travelin' Band" takes a different approach to Creedence Clearwater Revival's classic song, while Hal Butler's "Riders On The Storm" sounds so much like The Doors version that it's almost eerie. "On The Road Again" is performed by David Evans and has a groove that even Canned Heat fans could not deny and Jack O. & The Tearjerkers "Little Honda" is garage rock at its finest hour. Other highlights includes The Beat Generation's take on Buddy Holly's "Down The Line," Phill Durham's "Midnight Rider," and the surf-rock instrumental "Jitterboppin'" by Richard Ray Farrell.
