"Back in the early 2000's I was given the OK to start a new blues album for Stony Plain. Somehow after recording nine hot blues tracks, I got another album concept so we started another album session. I said we'd get back to the blues album soon after finishing the new project. As things sometimes go, we got busy with gigging, touring and life. That early blues album we cut kept getting put aside and we kept coming up with new album concepts within months of release of the last one. Finally, after two decades and dozens of recordings, we got to the place where it was time for my final Stony Plain record. All this time I knew we had to get back to the album we had started back in 2005. I knew those tracks were really strong but until I listened to them again, I didn't realize just how strong they really were." - Duke RobillardDuke Robillard is a legacy blues artist who launched his career with A Roomful of Blues in 1967, joined the Fabulous Thunderbirds, played with the Legendary Blues Band, was one-third of the New Guitar Summit, leads his own band and continues to do solo shows, now in his 75th year.
