ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
TOMMY TALTON
After years of legendary work in the music world, it’s clear that guitarist and songwriter Tommy Talton is still making music for the sheer joy of it. He manages to perform with both the energy of a music-obsessed kid and the restraint of a seasoned veteran – because, at heart, he is both.
In 1970, Tommy Talton, along with Scott Boyer, was a founding member of Capricorn Records group “Cowboy.”
From 1971 through 1977 Cowboy recorded 4 albums for Capricorn.
“Reach For The Sky,”
“5’ll Getcha Ten” (these first 2 albums by Cowboy are now available RealGone Records,
and “Boyer and Talton: Cowboy” (1974) and “Cowboy” (1977).
Talton also recorded an album titled “Happy To Be Alive/ Talton, Sandlin and Stewart” with producer Johnny Sandlin (Allman Bros., Delbert McClinton). Essentially, it being a solo effort with all but one song being written and sung by Talton.
While in Macon, Ga. through most of the 70’s, Tommy was a studio musician recording with artists such as Billy Joe Shaver, Bonnie Bramlett, Martin Mull, Corky Lang (West, Bruce and Lang/ Mountain), Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Clarence Carter, country music legend Kitty Wells, Alex and Livingston Taylor, Arthur Conley of Sweet Soul Music fame, Johnny Rivers, and more.
He toured extensively throughout the U.S. with Cowboy and with Gregg Allman’s “Laid Back Tour” as Gregg’s ‘Special Guests’ from Carnegie Hall to Fillmore West in San Francisco and most cities in between. Tommy was also the guitarist on Gregg Allman’s certified Gold “Laid Back” studio album.
Throughout the ‘90’s, Tommy lived and toured in Europe and formed a group there called “The Rebelizers” with members of Albert Lee’s band, Hogan’s Heroes.
Also at that time, he was guitarist on a Belgian television program, “Sommer Kuren” (“Cures Summer,” translated,1997) and played with numerous European musicians such as Toots Thielemans (jazz harmonica) while gigging in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany and Spain.
In 2005, he connected with Southern Music and Allman Brothers Band (news) magazine, “HittinTheNote.”
Although the "HittinTheNote" magazine has stopped circulation, all the solo c.d.'s Tommy released while with them are still available here on CDBaby. "Tommy Talton in Europe/Someone Else's Shoes"/ "Live Notes From Athens"/ "Let's Get Outta Here"/ "Until After Then"
Also available on CDBaby is the "Cowboy "Live" Reunion 2010."
Sharing the stage and jamming with old friends and new ones too, such as The Tedeshi Trucks Band, Gregg Allman Band, The Allman Brothers Band, John Ginty Band, Colin Linden and his Band, harmonica great Buddy Greene, Randall Bramblett Band, Chuck Leavell, etc.
He continues to tour the Southeast of the USA, with occasional visits to Chicago, New York and Europe, as a soloist and with a full band of 3 to 6 pieces.

Talton's Still Got It!
One would think that after following Tommy Talton for the past few decades I might have had my fill, but not so. Every time Talton releases an album, I am there, ears at the ready. Partly, it is his smooth to raw guitar edge. Partly it is his voice (Yes, Virginia, he still sounds like he did with Cowboy). Partly it is the production, for Talton has never been one to short himself on the quality of his sound. Partly, it is the fact that I met him once and walked away most impressed. Talton is a good guy and a workhorse. He is also a musician who has never received his just due, even after his work with the aformentioned Cowboy and The Gregg Allman Band. He continues his to excellent work on "Somewhere South of Eden," shuffling the various styles he has known and loved over the years--- smooth rock, soul, R&B, country--- and takes this album over the top. The songs are topnotch (my current favorite is "We Are Calling" just for the exceptional production and sound) and the performances the same. Take a listen to the samples above. If the music doesn't convince you, I suggest you have your ears checked.
