On The Road Again....

Dear Friends, Fans and Pickers,

Here we go again, All well down here in Florida, getting ready to hit the road for a short run up The Gulf Coast, with shows in New Orleans & Baton Rouge.   Time to load up The Bus and think about getting back to my other world....

For the past month or so I have been in and out of the studio, working on my first new album.  in some time.   After talking about a new recording project for the last few years, I am pleased to say that I have finally written some cool tunes and am really excited about getting the CD out by the end of April!  So watch out for, THE GOOD BOOK......

I have been working with some fine musicians down here in St. Pete and have been really pleased with the way the project has developed. I have Frank Bowman on Clarinet, Glenn Evans on percussion and T-Bone Hamilton  bass.  I can't stop listening to the unmixed tapes and I do believe this is the finest work I have ever done.  I always have said that there is no sense of making another album if it's not going to be your best!

Last night,  at Creative World Recording, in Largo FL, I was joined by local legend Damon Fowler who is one of Tampa Bay's most popular Blues entertainers.  Since his first album on Blind Pig was released, Damon's popularity has soared throughout the country and overseas.  We knew when we started to think about having a Lap Steel on some tunes that we had to give Damon a call.  Thankfully  he gladly joined us and definitely did not disappoint!   And a  large time was had by all......

Hopefully, the last tune will be recorded when I get back from the short tour  next week.  We plan to mix the tracks by April 4th,  then get it mastered and ready for the manufacturer by the second week in April.  With any luck, we will have the new cd "in the rack" for MERLEFEST.  "fingers crossed".

We will be heading up the East Coast after Merlefest and have quite a few shows booked for this first leg of the tour.  Do visit the website for details we hope to see you at one of the fine venues we will be appearing at.

Bye For Now,

The Book & Mrs. Book
