Product Notes

Hon*ky-tonk [origin unknown] n : a cheap nightclub or dance hall; a dive. Just like there are formative encounters with people in our lives, there are formative places-places to where those of us with some music in our souls and an affinity, perhaps, for adult beverages are drawn (often before we are even of legal age to frequent them)-places where we learn to dance, and if we think we are musicians, where we learn our chops. During my youth, several spots-each with it's own character and characters-imprinted themselves on my psyche: Reese and Babe's 'Tourist' House, The Pad, Paul's Lounge, The Bowery, The Cellar, Vince's Beer Garden, The Paperdoll Lounge, The Zanzibar, and others-mostly gone now-victims of 'progress.' I suspect the bulldozers will come one day for Bud & Joe's, and 'progress' will replace it with expensive condos or a trendy retail outlet. The truth is, though, that no one writes songs about condos, and no one has ever had a formative experience in a Starbucks. And so...this CD is dedicated to honky-tonks everywhere. Old honky-tonks never die; their neon signs forever shine in the shadowy recesses of legend and memory. 'Down at Bud & Joe's' is like having a honky-tonk in your pocket. Instant honky-tonk jukebox; just add beer.
