Thunder Into Heaven

Boston's Patio Records approached me this summer with the idea of releasing a retrospective CD. Further discussion revealed that four of the unreleased cuts from Smoke Road could be combined with five new cuts and a live version of Black Eyed Susan from Hugh's Room in Toronto and we could have a new up to date release!

Ian Tamblyn produced five new songs in James Stephen's Chelsea Québec studio (five minutes from my house). Local chanteuse Anouk Grégoire joined Alan Marsden on guitar and Alvaro de Manaya and Phil Bova on drums and we cooked some new turkeys and added them to the mix!

Cuts include: (Long Way From) Thunder Road, Bluebird, The Trembling Bird, Cottontop, Letter To Marie, The Silver Tongue of Acadie, Arthur's Chair, Boots & Saddles (full band version), Black eyed Susan (Live), Trembling Bird Reprise, Heaven Only Knows (Jeffra vocal).

Many thanks to the angels over the years: Peter Boshart, Eric Collins, Walter Grasser, Annie & Carl Grindstaff particularly.

I continue to write and record.
