Thanks for stopping by again Gary! Yes this backing track guitar was done by Gary Carciello (Rayon Vert guitarist). This was a demo he sent over. We had planned to do more with it and include DrC (RV Keys) but as things sometimes go, it never materialized.  So I used it for '62 Blues.

I came back to this one tonight for another couple listens! Cool stuff. This is the same guitar player that played with you on Rayon Vert too, is it not? Great recording here!

Thanks Dace for the good comments!

About the lyric: I was reminiscing  how much the blues influenced my early years as a musician and they still do. One of my favorite listens was an album conceived by Al Kooper and featuring the work of guitarists Mike Bloomfield and Stephen Stills.

They were an unlikely crew to do a blues album together( in 1968) but their bluesy rendition of Donovan's Season of the Witch pulled me right in. Around that time I also acquired an early 60's live album of Sonny Boy Williamson, backed by the Yardbirds, with a young blues guitarist named Eric Clapton. As I was thinking about the many hours I spent listening to and learning from these two albums (plus others) the thought to do a blues lyric/song paying homage to some of the greats that had an impact on me seemed right to do.  Anyway I'm rambling on but that's how the lyric and song came about.

Gary Shukoski: Been hearing this one in the chat shows and it's becoming a MIX anthem! Great tune! Vocally, it's got a bit of a ZZ feel to it and a very memorable rhythm riff.

Thanks Gary! Mixers do seem to like the lyric and grittiness of the song. Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment!

Thanks TV! You are right, even though I write in many genres, blues are a large part of my musical foundation. The lyric were easy to write being they are sprinkled with truths from my life's musical journey.   It seems I have found my destination "On the road to '62 Blues" and have surpassed it. Maybe in 7 years I'll have to write another verse and change the title to '72 Blues, lol!

Thanks Rusty! I couldn't resist putting some words and blues harp to Gary's track. I think the lyric tells the journey of a lot of us musicians of a certain age. Thanks man!
