John’s last released album was called The Day the River Sang. That wasn’t what it was supposed to be. We were working on an entirely different concept and had raised the money to do it via a crowdfunding program. Many of the Bloodliners and other fans joined in to raise the money for the recording. It happened that at the same time we were doing this John began to write songs. So, rather than go with our original plan and distribute 500 copies to the fans who had underwritten the project, John went to Jim Musselman at Appleseed Music. Jim had released several of John’s cd’s in the past and not incidentally, helped John financially when John needed the help the most. (Just a note: Support Appleseed when you can. They have a great lineup of artists and Jim Musselman is an anomaly in the music biz. He cares about the artist).
There are some great songs on the cd. Jasmine has turned out to be one of John’s most covered songs though still far behind Daydream Believer in sheer numbers. My favorite song on the cd is also one that I love to play. I butcher it and I know John would give me the dog stare and then laugh at me if he could hear it.
Listen to this one.
