So the work took a full year to complete. The title track, "This Old World", sums up life on planet earth in this modern day and age. This new album , in part, is a reflective look back at the songwriter's own personal life with familiar themes such as love gained and love lost and the complexities found in most relationships.... even anger and disillusion. "He Said, She Said", "Blinded" and "Red Haired Woman Blues" are prime examples. But some tunes are purely fictional accounts of drunken amorous debauchery such as "Adonde Se Fue Mi Amor" co written with Steve Brooks and Seymour Guenther in which a lover is left with empty pockets and a hangover after a long night of partying in a Texas border town. Another theme was a bit more reality based: "Texas Wildfire" is a true account of the terrible 2011 central Texas wild fires. This haunting and sparsely produced track was co written with long time friend Mike Kearney. But not all songs included on this new CD, the fourth for this artist on Brambus Records, are sad, raucous or of love gone wrong. An older tune written in 1993 entitled "Tellin' Me Things I Need Her To" and Richard Dobson's "It's Been This Way Forever" are classic love songs! Rounding things out are a few public domain tunes such as "Banks of the Ohio", "Deep Ellum Blues". Additionally there are two bonus tracks performed "live" at Austin's legendary cafe Threadgill's of "Two Dollar Bill" and "Black Mountain Rag".
