Product Notes

The title of my 2014 offering of original compositions and arrangements - Still On The Line - is taken from the last line of the last tune on this recording, Wichita Lineman (the one vocal track included). After 4 operations over 5 years, the last being hand surgery on New Year's Eve 2013, it's not necessarily a given that I can keep making music for a living. But I am still here, still making music - still on the line, so to speak! The instrumentation is mostly solo harp guitar here (Sir Gregory Goes To Genoa Towne, Allison's Wedding, Gabriel's Wedding, Veteran's Day, The Black Gunners, Nancy B, and Saint Susan). The remainder of the tunes are for solo guitar (Vika's Tune, Maple Leaf Rag, Tommy & Clara Got Married and Remember). And there's one tune with a kind of classic Chet Atkins fingerpicked electric sound (Uncle Don Enters The Ring). One 6 string track is a medley of the classic Jailhouse Rock and my own Balcony Boogie, inspired by my friend Tommy Emmanuel. And there's Wichita Lineman which I sing and accompany myself with harp guitar . I actually recorded this arrangement 5 years ago but didn't like how it turned out then. I'm very happy with this year's version and hope you will enjoy it too! Sb.
