ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Thank you for making this journey with me into the minds of musicians I have worked with. My first recording project was in 1987 at Began Sound in Ft. Worth, TX. The release on cassette tape featured Jackie Moore (guitar, vocals), Glenn Shelton (guitar), James Mayfield (drums), Drew Thomas (harmonica) and myself (bass), "Back to the Brazos" and "It's So Peaceful" remain with me on quarter inch reel to this day. We produced a series of RiverConcerts and performance venues to raise awareness of the impending dam project on the Paluxy River with the tour lasting four years. The second was in 1998 at Cedar Valley Community College studio, "Ode to a Fisherman" (poem by David Lilly), "Take Me Back To Texas", "South of the Four Sixes" and "Old Time Cowhand" (poems by TL Thompson) was a class project where Bryan Clark was tasked in the role of producer and not allowed to play the drum tracks himself. The day of the session, Bryan searched the corridor at the school and came back with a drummer to fill in. His name is not known for credit here. Hank Black (guitar, harmonica) on these tracks with myself (guitar, bass, vocals and songwriting)...Bryan got an "A" on the project. In the summer of 2001 with funds earned from a major construction project, I decided to fulfill a long standing promise to again record Jackie Moore (songwriter, acoustic guitar, vocals). We had been performing off and on throughout the decade. We selected the Diamond D studio on the Brazos River in Granbury and did several sessions on one inch analog tape. With Dan Hodan (lead guitar, mandolin) and a couple of failed drummers and engineering challenges, we abandoned the project when Jackie first introduced "Poet of the Prairie". We needed a better studio so I found The Kitchen Recording Studios Dallas, TX to record three songs. We came out with eight. The studio percussionist was Jeff Hennon and JP handled the ProTools. Very excited about these results, we scheduled another RiverConcert with Rusty Wier and Tres Hombres to headline the show in October. We were on KNON radio and Songwriter Showcase on DCTV with Lisa Byrn. Then came the infamous 9/11 event. I was begged to cancel the RiverConcert and called Rusty to ask if he was afraid to do it. You would not believe what he said. The RiverConcert production was a huge success. The attendance; however, was not. As producer, I retained this project and in 2003 reentered the studio and replaced Jackie's vocals with my own version of "Poet of the Prairie", "I've Crossed the Brazos" and "Goodbye to a River" (not included). I added Tracy Fletcher (tambourine, background vocal) to "Poet" with the assistance of Mark Dove during the 2008 sessions in Azle, TX where "On My Way" and "Fisherman's Paradise" (written by Jackie Moore not included in the 2001 sessions) were recorded with Mark Dove (piano, harmonica) and myself (vocals, acoustic guitar and bass). During my many travels developing a solo career, I have written about and performed in various unique places. There remains songs which need recording. In Stephenville, TX, I met Clif Hunter whose poem "Does Anyone Really Care to Know?" captured a standing ovation at the Irish pub at Branson Landing. It also captured the spirits on the Floyd Tillman tour bus near Galveston where "they" gave me the nickname "Clearwater" hence the title to this album and email address. The DVD movie production by Paranormal Investigations of Texas (paratexas.com) titled "Haunted Tillman Bus" and the original Jackie Moore and The Roadrunners CD are available on request. Thank you again for listening...see y'all while ago.
