The Man In Me
In the words of the great Eta James, “at last!” This has been a monster project to create-sifting through all of my unreleased recordings to choose what I wanted to present to you, would be a tough task for someone sighted. It’s made even more difficult for me as my “filing system” is to listen and listen and listen again. And then I started writing again a few months ago and decided to record three new songs to include. I think it will be worth the wait!
Some of these recordings were master demos and some were live performances. All have been re-mastered by Chris Greenwell at Louisville’s own Downtown Recording Studio to give you the best quality listening experience.
These songs cover 50 years of my career from 1970 to 2020. The people who contributed to this anthology are numerous and cross the country. Some are still with us, many have sadly passed, but they all touched my life in profound ways. For a complete listing, please see the credits below

Thanks from my heart and soul to the people that had to put up with me all these years. Nothing would have ever come together without the amazing hard work from my lovely bride: Laura, she's a true trooper. Thanks to Adam & Amber for inspiring me to write 2 of the songs in this project. Thanks to Clark Hagan for being my executive producer on 3 of these songs. He helped to light the fire back under me. Also, thanks to my webmaster: David Nuckolls (GloryKidd Technologies). He has been there to support me through all of these years while I learned a little about my computer. Many thanks to Bill Myers for constantly researching so much information that I needed out there in the world. Last but not least. Thanks to Loki for being my super Cat.
