Absolutely incredible! Originally released in 1995 and now back in print by popular demand. No kidding...
The sound is Raw and Untainted. A powerful combination of Folk, Rock, and Blues. "Americana" music at it's best.
From the second you press "play" this Cd grabs you. With an intensity of uncompromising energy and originality.
Available for two years before it's release as a "Bootleg" within the exception of "Chain Gang Revisited" which was an improvised sound-check in the studio.
Today, Songs like "Wild Oats","John James", and "Tough to Balance" are considered classics with Ian Charles fans.
