“Back in the early 2000’s I was given the OK to start a new blues album for Stony
Plain. Somehow after recording nine hot blues tracks, I got another album concept
so we started another album session. I said we’d get back to the blues album soon
after finishing the new project. As things sometimes go, we got busy with
gigging, touring and life. That early blues album we cut kept getting put
aside and we kept coming up with new album concepts within months of
release of the last one.
Finally, after two decades and dozens of recordings, we got to the place
where it was time for my final Stony Plain record. All this time I knew we
had to get back to the album we had started back in 2005. I knew those
tracks were really strong but until I listened to them again, I didn’t realize
just how strong they really were.” ~ Duke Robillard
