The inspiration to do this covers record came from one song. It was “Walk of Life”, by Dire Straits. I knew the song since being a kid, and I’ve always thought of it as Mark Knopfler’s nod to Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode”. The song really rings true with me because, in a way, its my story too. So I started doing a live version, in a country blues style with the audience whistling along, and it became a highlight of my shows. In fact, all these songs were originally written during one of the most awful eras of rock and roll, a period in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s that I like to call “The Golden Era of S***”. But maybe that makes these songs even sweeter. Even the most obscure song, “Rainbow in the Dark” by Dio, is a beautifully written song full of emotion. And part of the fun was flipping it on its head and turning a heavy metal standard into a country ballad. Originally this was just intended to be a stripped down EP, with some of my home recordings being of suspect audio quality. But once Sam Kassirer got involved, that changed. I told him I wanted it to be a “Bedroom EP”, but apparently, he has an amazing sounding bedroom. He added to the simple acoustic tracks with a Midas touch. -Bhi
