Album Notes
The album kicks off with four original songs from 1982 that Ward recorded in Nashville, TN. They were carefully restored from the original 2-inch multi-track tape, then mixed and mastered for this release. "Truck Drivin' Women (Turn Me On)" and "Melinda" were originally released regionally on a 7-inch 45 rpm single, which has long been out-of-print. "Weekend Mama" and "Memories" are being made available to the public for the first time.

"Thank God For You" was recorded with his wife Marcella during the 2013 gospel sessions in Branson, MO. "I've Found An Angel" was also recorded during those sessions.

"Wake Me In The Morning" and "Walk Away" were released regionally on 7-inch vinyl in 1974 and did well on the local radio stations in Kentucky. The master tapes were never recovered so these versions have been meticulously restored from the long out-of-print vinyl.

Dar Bee Music is proud to release these songs for the first time ever in digital format. We believe in the timelessness of music, and hope that these songs will be enjoyed for generations to come.
