    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

I keep wanting to put this song to bed, but it keeps waking back up in new and interesting ways. Maybe this will be the last time record it... but I doubt it'll be the last time we play it.

Quick fixes never seem to really work. It's the slow, patient change that lasts. What we need individually, communally, nationally, globally is an insistence on lasting change that isn't just a patch or a whitewash, and that may hurt more than a little but will be worth it in the long run.

lyrics

When I skinned my knee Momma made me feel better
but the wound still needed time to heal
When Betty broke my heart you know I wanted to die
somehow I survived that long ordeal
Heartache to heartache I grew strong
learning to take whatever comes along…

I went to Sunday School, I heard the Golden Rule
folks fought over chairs and padded pews
When my friend got fired he made their prayer list
but they kept their cash - he didn't share their views
I grew disillusioned, but I held on
`cause there's no confusion, between right and wrong
(and I think that's wrong but)

I don't want a quick fix,
I don't need a quick fix.
I don't want a quick fix,
Hey mister – keep your quick fix.

Some talk of pie in the sky in the sweet bye and bye
Well, I believe in a place called Heaven
No tears, no fears, no sin, no dyin'
but in the meantime I've got to keep on livin'
through laughter and sorrow, sun and rain
sharing my hero’s great love and pain…

I don't want a quick fix,
I don't need a quick fix.
I don't want a quick fix,
Hey mister – keep your quick fix.
