ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album gives voice to the hard struggles of the working people of an earlier time along the Mississippi River. Set in the region that gave birth to Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, a stone's throw from Hannibal, Missouri, the album paints a picture of the river, and how it flowed through the veins of the people who lived and worked along its banks: factory workers, kids growing up the hard way, teenagers in fast cars, families in crisis, dispossessed tenant farmers and sharecroppers, and runaway slaves. These are the voices of hardstrapped people fighting just to keep their heads above water as they search for their own version of the American Dream. In a sense, the songs are about a desperate longing for freedom and a better life, but maybe if the truth be told, they're just a gritty reminder of where I came from and who I am.

Dr G and the Mudcats - "My Daddy's Blues"
Dr G's follow up to his debut "Mudcat" offers more high quality performances of original material. The songs included here reflect Dr G (Gregg Andrews)'s ability to range widely across the spectrum of Americana, from blues based offerings such as "High As A Poor Boy Gets", "Evil in the Delta" and the title track to lighter songs - "Lazy Swing" and "We've Been Here Before" and "Crawdaddy Moonshine". The tracks are a mix of seasoned material and newer compositions. Especially noteworthy among the more familiar songs are "My Daddy's Blues", "The Things You Do", and "Cousin Jesse", all three powerful, personal narratives drawn from close personal experience and memory.

As well as the regular "stage" Mudcats = Sterling Finlay, Grant Mazak, Big John Mils, and Kyle Schneider - heard here, the "studio" Mudcats include Colin Brooks and Brady Black (both heard on the "Mudcat" CD), Bruce Banks, and Ed Flores. With such a line up of musical talent, it's not surprising that the arrangements provide strong musical support for Dr G's songs. "My Daddy's Blues" is definite must for the collector of Americana performers.
