ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bobby & Sue Bates have a combined music background that encompasses over 70 years. After winning a national harmonica competition in NYC at age 21, Bobby worked and toured with such notables as Emmylou Harris, the Allman Brothers, Gordon Lightfoot, (The) Tom Jones, Ronnie Hawkins, Buddy Rich, Taj Mahal and a host of others. The couple is delighted to have discovered that they share genetic connections to Celtic music. It would naturally follow that they would add the genre to their other musical styles, particularly so since Celtic music appears to be the rootstock for all.
This 16 song album is a collection of well known and much loved all-time favorites as well as the Celtic-flavored "Tower Tall" which was originally released by the late, great Gene Pitney. Of particular interest are the two original songs by the duo, Sue's "Such A Girl As I", originally released in '96 and received Indie airplay around the globe and Bobby's "Once For Old Time's Sake" which sounds like a combination of Celtic & Native American culture with its driving rhythm and chanting.
With their smooth yet vibrant harmonies, Bobby's expertise on the harmonica, percussion and guitar with Sue's 12-string, bass and keyboard, this is an album that works well for road trips, background music or just sitting and listening.
The album itself is the couple's first foray into Celtic music and actually came into being in the form of an audition cd for a Celtic festival performance slot. They got the job and more!
