UPDATE !!!! FROM CARL ....Via CSSOLand
I Was NEVER satisfied with the mix or my playing on this (SD, Mike all great) These songs needed a MORE DIRECT and ROCKING treatment than they got.
IT (AND MORE) Has been RE-Recorded, Mixed and Mastered and I now LOVE it. The whole Chemo thang had me "weakened" (which works on some songs) and breathless to really do the tunes justice.
The NEW RELEASE will contain MOST of the material on THIS CD/DL but also contains many brand new tunes and a few resurrected 'classics' from daze of olde.
Its now RAGGED JAGGED URGENT RAW and ROCKIN' ... and retains the BALLADS as well.
I am REALLY EXITED to get this out ... COMING SOON! :
THE FIST & The FLOWER II
Sure it's "songwriters stuff" ...but picture this:
...One summer + three guys: 'older guys' who've been playing their whole lives, in clubs, on fine stages, and most importantly the front porches and garages this music was born on. Call it Redneck. Call it Americana, Southern Rock, call it anything you wish, but know its main genres are Honest, Broken, Love, and Fun. 'The Sound of Life' as told by those who live and breath to play music. and at a total of 100+ years of shared obsession, that musicianship aint too shabby at all, "these guys can PLAY!" ...
