ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
TEXAS JAKE has been performing on the"underground"blues circuit both solo[on resonator guitar]and with electric-slide guitar[Les Paul]with his band the"Houserockers"for many years.His burning passion for blues started at an early age.At 13 years old he was already on the road traveling with his thumb and his guitar through the Mississippi Delta,Texas,Oklahoma,Alabama,Louisanna,Arkansas,Missouri,and as far away as California.Picking up gigs and makeing a lot of friends.He moved to Northern California during the 60's ,and was part of the San Francisco music scene,working for Al King Productions[Sly Stone's agent]and Bill Graham at the Filmore West.Through the years there have been a lot of bass-players,drummers,keyboardist,horn-players etc.but the central theme has always been the same.....play from your heart and make the music the best it can be!I have personally known and jammed with many greats over the years includeing........Freddy King,Rossand Roland Kirk,Janis Joplin,Peter Greene,Taj Mahal,Jerry Garcia,Dusty Hill,Country Joe McDonnald,Sam Hopkins,Bukka White,Johnny Winter,Berry Melton,Boz Scaggs,Steve Miller,Tracy Nelson,Powell St.John,Elvin Bishop,Mike Bloomfield,and many,many more.Jake made 2 L.P.'s[now out of print collector items]the first being named "Im Blue"on the now defunct American music label.The secand was a limited pressing called "Texas Jake and White Lightning"on the Mercury label.He also worked for Mercury Records[S.F.] as a studio musician.This is his first C-D ,featureing all original songs.Jake is eager to play his slide-guitar blues for you,and hopes you will enjoy it and become one of his friends!8/2004 Arthur Dill Producer.

Texas blues comes to town...
Jake slides and boogies his way into our life and he is most welcome with this album. We already have 'Tales from the badside' and of course had to get this one on the strength of that, this album takes us a bit further with his swampy insistent real-deal playing and singing, not to mention the lyrics of life on the road, you can't mistake Jake's signature sound, once you've heard it you're hooked. For lovers of rootsy blues and authentic slide guitar this smokin' album is a must, he has a feel all his own and it's loaded with heart, soul and passion.

RAVE-REVIEW!
What, you ask is a RAV-VIEW?
It is where I verbally [ in writing ] prove That I am Crazy.
Blues Fans everywhere have the uniquely wonderful oppertunity to get their hands on some fantastic
Blues work on the internet.
I get my hands a some fantastic CD's of a friend of mine and I had to let my ears hear what was on them. So I slipped them (one at a time) into my laptop and started them to playing.
I don't know what the CD's will do for you, but, they took me down the Mississippi to another time. With flatboats, catfish, gumbo, cornbread, and ice tea, Small boys fishing from the pier and friends gathered round playing their guitars and singing there on the delta.
Now I got three of these time travel CD's but I am going to write about the newest release.
My friend featured a song on the CD titled "Blues Following Me", now don't take me wrong, this is a good song, but, old uncle Henry, here now he prefers the song he dedicated to his friends in the Republicans War and all the young men the president has put in harms way. Those are my words not his. [ I am not a Democrat either, I am an American and a Human Being ]
The title of the song is "If We All Sang the Blues" Wow! Now that is a Blues Song!
For the fans of "Slide Guitar" this is a CD for you, it is produced by the "KING OF SLIDE" TEXAS JAKE and if you are an all Bules fan like I am you will want it also.
I know the boy call's what he does Texas Blues, but, you know them Texans they claim to be a whole nother country and to acknowlege the Delta . . . Well there is just no way, FORGET IT!
Now you all go out there on my page and look at my friends list. You will find an ole boy out there with a grin the size of Texas with a 10 gal. hat on and click, no wait, make sure you see TEXAS over his head and click on the big grin of his. You can "Download" this whole CD for a little more than a gallon of gas or 3 beers. You may also message him and request info an how to get it ready made on a CD. ask about all the CD's he has and plan to get them all.
Be sure to tell him either way that "Uncle Henry" sent you!

TRUELY THE KING !!!!
This CD is awsome.....Jake has a great "feel" for the blues and it comes through in each and every track on this album.The slide guitar on this album seems to come from a place rooted deep in the south and you can can almost sense the "Ghosts" of the old masters in attendance !!!
The songs are really clever and Jake's voice is richly soaked in the blues.
Keep it up Jake........you are the King.
