    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 first of two songs written for GW Staton's "For Song Sake" competition; this one didn't win, but if they heard this version instead of the subtle acoustic version the judges might have been persuaded differently.

I was assigned the title "Walking Time", and for me it conjured up images of particular points in life where I had to make a decision - should I stay or should I go (to quote The Clash). Redeem the time, folks, because the days are evil. Wherever you need to get there, head out now, because it's walking time.

lyrics

They say the first step is the hardest, it gets easier as you go.
But I'm stuck in indecision 'cause it might cost more than I know.
How could I ever turn my back on such a big part of my past?
But if I don't I could be stuck right here and my days are fading fast...

Come on, get on, move down the road
Come on, get on, lose your load

Sometimes you run away, sometimes you fly
Sometimes you jump overboard, right now, it's walking time

I find comfort in the familiar - faded jeans I love to wear
beat up shoes slide on like my skin, that creaky easy chair
But I'm not ready to retire now, take it easy all my days
My bucket list is spilling and it's time to change my ways

Come on, get on, move down the road
Come on, get on, lose your load

Sometimes you run away, sometimes you fly
Sometimes you jump overboard, right now, it's walking time

Tick-tock-tick - why are you waiting?
Tick-tock-tick - time never slows.
Tick-tock-tick - stop hesitating –
you can't get it back after it goes...

Sometimes you run…
Sometimes you fly…
Sometimes it’s overboard…
Right now, it's walking time.
