ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From Chris’ liner notes:

Compiling songs for this live album felt a little like looking through a photo album spanning a couple of decades. Like a skilled photographer, engineer Pieter Groenveld captured a lot of special moments, many of which I'd forgotten about, that brought back some cherished memories, musical and personal”.

”… I did my first European tour in 1985 with a band called Whetstone Run, which featured Lynn Morris, Marshall Wilborn, and Lee Olsen. This tour is represented


by track #2, "The Way I Am".

”A special relationship with the Strictly Country organization developed through the years, and I released my first solo studio project, "Blinded By the Rose" for their label in 1995. These tours became an important and special part of my career, and they still are.”

”A few musical highlights and surprises that I was reminded of include the banjo playing of Doug Knecht on "Fork in the Road" and "Nashville Blues". Doug was the first banjo player in my band, and I regard him as one of the best-kept secrets in bluegrass banjo. The fine mandolin work of German bluegrasser Hendrick Arend is heard on "Ready if You're Willin'" and "Brand New Pair of Shoes".

“Slavek Hanzlik, a musician known mainly for his guitar work, demonstrated his versatility by playing bowed bass on an arrangement of "Drinking From the Fountain" that I'd completely forgotten about. Many are familiar with the bass playing of Mike Bub, but few are now aware of what an outstanding banjo player he is.

“ The gospel song "Whispering Now" features an all-star Czech band that I put together for a recent tour. "Cabin on the Hill" is an answer to at least a decade's worth of requests to work Lester Flatt and Willie Nelson into a recording…”


A note about the bonus track (#13). SInce we haven't had an opportunity to tour Europe yet, I wanted to include our new band, The Chris Jones Coalition, by adding a live studio recording of one of our more requested current songs, Dixie Hall's "Diesel Smoke on Danger Road" .
