    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 the other GW Staton-induced song. The assigned title was simply "Night Train". I pictured a painful reuniting with the fragile hope that this time around maybe we'll get it right. Nick's lap steel brings to mind the squeal of the steel wheels down the track, while Ian's honky-tonk piano really brings out the Americana flavor it needs. BTW, I prefer the Ann Arbor Amtrak station to the Pontiac one, but Pontiac rhymed better...

lyrics

Pour another cup of coffee, try to stay awake
Baby’s gone too long, more than I could take
now she's coming for me on the night train

Made about thousand phone calls begging her return
All I did and didn't do, oh, I swear I learned
now she's coming for me on the night train (2x)

So let it roll... oh let it roll... she's coming home...
On the track past Jackson to the place where she belongs, yeah ... Woo hoo!

She headed to Chicago that cold November night
Searching for herself and for someone to treat her right
now she's coming for me on the night train

Looking back I see the reasons and the seasons and the scars
But wherever you go, baby, there you are
still she's coming for me on the night train (2x)

So let it roll... oh let it roll… 'cause she's coming home
On the Amtrak to Pontiac and back into my arms...

This time... I'll get it right...
I'll do my part... I'll hold her tight...
I'll put her needs... above my own...
So roll on night train - roll on home. ... Woo hoo!

As I pull into the station I hear the whistle down the line
My heart beats to the engine, oh my baby’s right on time
and she's coming for me on the night train

I study every window to catch my baby's eye
Over there - in the doorway… we both begin to cry...

This time... I'll get it right...
I'll do my part... I'll hold her tight...
I'll put her needs... above my own...
So roll on night train – we’re going home!
