    This live collection was recorded at the Hard Rock Cafe in Detroit, Michigan on November 8, 2012. It's our very best work to date, with sizzling leads from Jake Burdock, blistering bass from Kenny Szymanski, and relentless grooves from Leland McCann (with Tom and Bob doing what they always do best). Add to that some soaring lap steel from Nick Klaver and jaw-dropping piano from Ian Tadaschi-Moore and you have one exciting, well-paced concert experience (you'll just have to add your own applause because we cut all that stuff out).

    You'll hear the old school blues we're known for, some fresh heartland Americana, and some incredibly funky rock that will make you want to move SOME part of your body (head, hips, feet - take your pick). And the lyrics are our strongest offering yet, dealing with the vicissitudes of life (yes, I said "vicissitudes" - it means the "ups and downs", i.e., the "seasons") and the lessons learned in the aftermath.

    The song order carefully flows one to another as do the themes (but we'll let you figure that out by listening). The interplay of the instruments sounds great in headphones. This is one well-constructed album that just so happens to be recorded in a live setting (where we really shine).

    Shrink-wrapped CD with full color, four-panel insert and beautiful graphics.

about

This is a Chicago Blues homage to many of the greats who have inspired me over the years. Real afficionados of the blues will get the inside jokes. Whatever you do, learn about and from the masters in that area and try to carry on that legacy in your own unique way - the worlds needs a whole lot more of that.

lyrics

WC Handy - he kept the score
Robert Johnson thumbed a ride and opened up the door
of that car at the crossroads
where he first got the blues
We're just another generation trying to walk in their big shoes

There was Jack Owens/Bud Spires, old Son House,
Sonny Boy singing “One Way Out”
Skip James lost his woman to the Devil’s noose
(he wouldn’t cut her loose)
We’re just another generation trying to walk in their big shoes.

The blues will rock you, blues will roll
The blues got rhythm and a ton of soul
The blues sticks with you win or lose
So we can’t help trying on these shoes

McKinley Morganfield crossed the muddy waters
Little Walter blew his harp and stole their daughters
Chester Burnett howlin’ at the moon
while Willie Dixon wrote the tune
We're just another generation trying to walk in their big shoes

The blues will rock you, blues will roll
The blues got rhythm and a ton of soul
The blues sticks with you win or lose
So we can’t help trying on these shoes

Bo Diddley, Elmore, Blues Boy King
T-Bone, Buddy, Etta shakin’ her thing
John Lee, Alberta Adams, Johnnie Basset, too
(the Detroit Crew)
We're just another generation trying to walk in their big shoes

The blues will rock you, blues will roll
The blues got rhythm and a ton of soul
The blues sticks with you win or lose
So we can’t help trying on these shoes

We're just another generation trying to walk in their big shoes.
