Album Notes
Trout Records is proud to announce the release of four-time Grammy nominee TROUT FISHING IN AMERICA's "Lookin' at Lucky" their first full length CD for adults in eleven years. As in all their previous releases, "Lookin’ at Lucky" is a tour de force in songwriting and musicianship, loaded with their renowned humor and great melodies and peppered with stellar performances by guest artists. "Lookin’ at Lucky" reflects maturity and growth for Idlet and Grimwood as artists, proving they have not lost their edge but rather have honed it razor sharp.

Long-term love is echoed in the title song and "Not Every Dream", while the sweet melody and sentiment of "Home" speaks of the quest for a personal peace. The Cajun swing tune, "She’s the Only Smile", speaks to the luck of discovery and the satisfaction of finding a kindred spirit, even if it’s just a brief interlude on the dance floor. Even the resurrection of the tune "How Many Times a Fool", written by the duo over 20 years ago about a jilted lover, expresses maturity. The original, seethed with anger, is revisited here. It has been reworked to be more reflective and gentler, as though saying, 'well I’m hurt but not blinded by anger'. Idlet and Grimwood also prove they can still rock with a slow burn in another breakup song, "Drivin’ Rain", treated in an unconventional way with some inventive banjo soloing by Idlet. The duo's irrepressible sense of humor is heard throughout the CD as in George Barton’s "Safer Haven", where the not so lucky guy is trying to find a safe place. In "The Car’s Running" (and I can’t find the keys) and "Who Knows What We Might Do", they bring fun to the challenges of getting older as does "I Pretend to Understand", the inevitable result of too much information. Finally the CD’s closer, "My Baby Loves Sudoku", is a lament to becoming a ‘widower’ to a wife’s hobby (addiction).
