CD ONLY –
This is Dale Peterson’s second release for Root 66 recording company and his first collection of original songs since 1999’s “Full Circle”.
“Son of Harry” has a roots/rock vibe with some country and western thrown in for fun. All thirteen songs are originals written by Peterson including the biographical western, “California” to the swinging tongue-in-cheek of, “San Francisco Retreat”. There’s a house rocking original titled “On the Road Again” celebrating the many joys of life on the road. Plus there is an earth shaking instrumental called “Snake Pit”.
Dale has some very special guests on this release. They are some of Los Angeles’ finest musicians. People like John “Juke” Logan on piano, Chris Lawrence and Rick Shea on steel guitar and Steph Traino providing the bass guitar vibe. Jay Perris, Mike Molina and Dale Daniel share drum duties. While Jesus Cuevas plays the accordion and bass on “Riding the Rails”. Dan Janisch and Miguel Garcia sing back up and don’t forget the king of bluegrass, Cliff Wagner on fiddle. Special tracks to listen to are “California”, “I’m Losin’ You” and “Old Saddle Blanket”.
* Individual songs also available for download on iTunes.
