This is the sixth release for David James. His second as a solo artist in addition to his previous records with the bands The James Brothers and Fish Heads & Rice. The songs on Eisenhower High show David's personal background and years of performing, recording, writing and singing music. With the exception of the title track, which was recorded in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, the CD was recorded in Nashville Tennessee, where David lived for over twenty years, and at the FAME studios in Muscle Shoals Alabama, where he worked as a session player and staff songwriter for seven years. The tracks flow smoothly within the Country and R & B sounds from those two places, but also incorporate Rock & Roll, Rock-a-Billy, Folk and even some Island flavor from his new home in the Caribbean. As with his previous Troppo Forte release, Clean Getaway, David had the pleasure of sharing the songwriting with some of the finest writers in Nashville, Muscle Shoals and Beyond. Co-writing on this album are Billy Crain, Walt Aldridge, Billy Falcon, Kate Campbell and Daryl Burgess. Their songs have been recorded by everyone from Bon Jovi to the The Dixie Chicks. Here's what David had to say about his new CD, Eisenhower High: "Eisenhower High is a metaphor for all of the small towns in rural America, especially in the mid and mountain west where I grew up. This album reflects that background much more than my previous ones, making it a bit more country, but still my usual eclectic blend of styles. Thanks for listening."
