ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bio of the Band 3-UP

The Band 3-UP was formed in June 2003 in Portland Oregon.
Member Tom Morris, of Sheridan Wyoming, traveled to Portland to asked his cousins Don & Larry Simmons if they would help him record "Mad Dog Motorcycle Legends" Album. Don an accomplished Bass player & Larry a world-class guitarist, agreed to throw their hats in the ring and give Tom's Music some juice. In mid-November of 2003 and 10 songs later, 3-UP called "Mad Dog" Motorcycle Legends a wrap.
Brothers, Don & Larry Simmons got started in music at the age of 10; both started playing guitar under the watchful eye of their dad, Portland Band Leader, Radio and TV. personality, Buddy Simmons. At the age of 14, Don and Larry began playing professionally in their family band. Don & Larry have been in the music business full-time ever since. Don began playing Bass Guitar at age 16 and has shared the stage with country greats as George Morgan, Lefty Frizzel, and Wanda Jackson. Larry toured for 6 years with Ray Stevens and has performed with artist Ray Charles, Kenny Rogers, Tanya Tucker, and the Oak Ridge Boys. These guys are Pro's and perform to the max on this album. Tom, Don, & Larry love traveling and life on two wheels. 3-UP is heading back to Abracadabra studios in Ridgefield, Washington in the fall to begin their second album!

Ride Safe and Throttle Up--



SELECTIONS HISTORY:


Buddy's 53 / 74"
The legend of a Memphis Tennessee 50's motorcycle rebel Buddy G.

"Randolph Scott's Bright Light"
On August 16,2003, Randy Scott was killed while riding his motorcycle by Congressman William J.Janklow in Moody County South Dakota. Janklow was given 100 days in jail for his negligence. What a shame!!

"Mad Dog"
A Vietnam Veteran drifted for years getting his life together. A trip to Sturgis Motorcycle Rally changed his life forever!

"Miami Motorcycle Queen" Spoken Word by Larry Simmons
The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) presents the Bessie Stringfield award each year to the female Rider who has made an exceptional contribution to the sport of motorcycling in her lifetime. This AMA Hall of Fame Award aptly bears her name "The Bessie Stringfield Award"! Bessie Stringfield, you were Somethin' Else!!

"Freedom's Sound"
"Freedom's Sound" is when you roll on the Throttle and head your Chopper out of town.

"Willie Left Cindy"
A true story about the Living Legend Willie Nelson. Two of 3-UP's band members have known Willie since their childhood days.

"Thank the Lord and Willie G."
The first song written for this album; you may have heard this one in Harley Shops or on many AM/FM stations!

"Who I am"
Mystery, Philosophy and The Love of Tom's Life - Mary K

"Gus's Panhead" Spoken Word by Larry Simmons
A recollection of a story about a long forgotten Motorcycle Shop in Edgemont South Dakota. Now faded into the history of this once booming South Dakota town.

"Beaver Creek Saloon"
A Rally go'er on a road trip from the Great Northwest to Sturgis finds a watering hole and perhaps some romance in the "Beaver Creek Saloon".

Heartfelt songs in a great new genre; definitely worth a try!!!!
I'm especially partial to "Miami Motorcycle Queen". The song does an excellent job of promoting a legend that more people should know. All of the songs are true to life and the lyrics are excellent!

Jane B

A must for any serious motorcycle rider!
This CD appeals to a wide range of music lovers. It's very easy to listen to and great when you're on the road. The lyrics tell a great story, and the acoustics add to the appeal.

Kitty Inman

This CD touches my heart and soul.
When I listen to this CD, I experience a little of every
emotion a person can feel. Who AM I is my favorite song,
because it tells about love and life's wonderful journey.

K.B. Inman

I like the entire CD, especially WHO I AM.
The entire CD is really enjoyable to listen to, because the songs are about life, love and real people. I look forward to future CDs by this group.

Barb Plummer

Great songs about everyday life and music out of this world!!!!!!!!!!
I like this cd because the songs are so down to earth. As you listen to the songs you feel as you are this person who is singing, it could be your life or the life you would like to be able to share in. The music is good to listen to and to also dance to a couple of songs.

the love and true experience happy and sad.
These are songs that come from true life of people that have a great understanding and a great love of their fellow man/women and country. It also tells us how people with money and power get away with taking another mans life and really it did not cost him anything. How sad.

RM Spence

Fantastic, great fun!
So much fun to just kick back and listen. It's different and not like everything out there on the disks.

Ed Kenlon

Appealing and NOT appalling. How refreshing.
Appealing and NOT appalling. How refreshing. The band put together a down home, back porch, folksy sound that is not necessarily country and not really rock. It’s just good ol’ American music. Guitars, drums and a keyboard. The tunes are not complex, the instrumentation is basic but the quality is right up there with the big boys. Expertly played and mixed down with technical skill, the finished product lets all the facets of this gem of a CD shine brightly.

Each song is from the heart and has a story to tell. All have an upbeat message. Even the sad song in the collection is a toe-tapper and brings on personal resolve rather than a flood of tears. The voice quality of the members are sometimes better suited to group harmony rather than a solo number. Nevertheless, their execution is not shy and every note is authentic as the artist puts voice to song. There is just a touch of roughness that adds a quality of authenticity that the big producers could never duplicate. These fellows are real.

The title of the album tells it like it is. If you’re just a little curious about some obscure motorcycle history, like good guitar licks, and appreciate an honest ballad, you might enjoy these hand crafted selections. Ten songs by four guys and one fine album.

Lee and Joyce Morris

Liked the variety, and songs. Well done by all artists.
Our favorites on this were Mad Dog, Freedom Sound, Who I AM. Found the ballads Randolph Scott, Willie Left cindy very sad but great. Enjoyed the entire CD.
