When I was little we had a cabin up HWY 39 in the San Gabriel Mountains. There was this little river that flowed past the cabin. A flood in 1969 washed half of it away so my Dad sold the little place. Over the years I would drive up there and sit by this little river and play Green River and other songs. Every time I go camping and there is river GR is the first song that plays in my head. If you get lost come on home to Green River Well!
Yep that guitar work on that song is unbelievable. When I can crank way way up in the car and my wife doesn’t complain then I know it’s something great. She looks at me and says they really play great together. Now that is what I’m talkin’ about.
Yes Mystic Highway is a great song. I still crank up Hot Rod Heart, I have always loved HRH . When BMS first came out we went to a interview with a DJ named Red Beard in Burbank . When they played HRH during the interview I looked at John and seen that smile on his face, he knew it was a gem. Now he and Brad did it again and it kicks butt. The whole CD is great what else can I say.
Congratulations#3 week one next week# 1. Next week headed to the Kern and maybe stay a Whispering Pines. I ‘ll try to write a few new songs but the only thing is I’m a terrible song writer. So lets leave the song writing for John. Mystic Highway is fantastic you have done it again you always have a way to surprise your fans.

Talk about Swamp Talk, next week I have a vacation and I’m going go to the Kern for a couple days. I might stay at Whispering Pines and write a few songs. The only problem is I’m not a good song writer but I’ll keep on trying. Hey(Keep on Trying )maybe that is a good title.
