Notes from Rat Stompin' Blues Volumes 1 & 2 

    I love Delta style and acoustic "unplugged" Blues! Unfortunately I don't get much chance to play it because I am usually out there in the trenches doing Urban Blues with an electric band.
Therefore I was very glad to be able to record this collection of original songs in that style. I hope that you enjoy my gift to you.

Soon to be released in CD format

          These songs were recorded during two different sessions and under very different conditions.CD number one was recorded in very primitive conditions, basically in a hovel in Austin Texas in February of 1995.  In case there's any gearheads interested, I used a 1962 Fender Stratocaster, a 1949 Gibson acoustic and a 1929 National Triolian and I played the Strat through a 1964 Fender Princeton.
    CD number two was recorded in better conditions in Los Angeles on April 15th 1997. I used a 1946 D'Angelico Excel recorded acoustically and the 1929 National Triolian.
Watch out for number three! It's stirring around in my brain right now...
    I want to thank my Mom and Dad for their support, my wife Yoko for her encouragement and love, my cousin Ed for always helping me with the printing, Bobby Owsinski for his good advice, technical expertise and help with the recording and Michael Weinstein for the photography. 
    I have the copyright on all these songs so please, don't rip them off. It's bad karma and also happens to be illegal. Please get my written permission first and THEN rip them off.
