March, 2000-The last of the 3 John Kay solo albums recorded in 1978. Produced by Clayton Ivey and Terry Woodford, this project was recorded and mixed at Wishbone Recording Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, and mastered at Masterphonics in Nashville, Tennessee by Glenn Meadows. Exclusively distributed at steppenwolf.com
This was my third solo album and the first one recorded outside California, namely Muscle Shoals, Alabama, which at that time was a hot bed of recording activity. Since most of my musical influences are of southern origin, I looked forward to this experience and I was not disappointed. In addition to working with such fine musicians as Clayton Ivey, keyboards; Roger Clark, drums and Bob Wray, bass, as well as the Muscle Shoals Horns. I had the pleasure of once again playing with Steppenwolf alumni Larry Byrom , lead guitar. After quick rundowns we had tape rolling and in no more than 3 weeks the LP was mixed and done. It has that slinky, funky groove and lazy feel which I admired so much on many of the recordings from Muscle Shoals and Memphis. With a couple of minor exceptions I still enjoy the music on this record and it remains one of my favorites to this day...
