Album Notes
I didn't write any of these songs, but I've played 'em hundreds of times over the years. Still like 'em, too. They do make up the foundation of my own music.

On an early winter's evening in December 2006 at Prairie Wind Studios, in the rolling hills of southern Iowa, we set up the mics and I sang and played these songs for the next 90 minutes. If a tune felt right, we moved on. If not, we tried again. Most are first takes, and hopefully capture the energy that's only found in a live performance. It's not easy, believe me. Inspiration, skill, luck; you need 'em all. And all at the same time.

Later, I added keys, harmonica, a second guitar; while Kirk Webb laid down some mandolin and my wife Charlene sang harmonies. A little texture, a little color. That's it.

Some of you may be familiar with these songs. If so, I hope you find my versions acceptable. I respect and admire all these songwriters. Or, maybe this is an introduction to these fine artists. If so, do yourself a favor and check out the impressive bodies of work by these truly wonderful songwriters.

Thanks for visiting and thanks for listening.
