Blues! Yes this all about blues.

This kind of blues is non-fiction blues. The type of blues that come from real life experience, in the tradition of the bluesman of yesteryear. A twist of fate stemming from a broken transmission sets the gears of motion rolling through the years, ending up in the experiences that eventually lead up to the writing of these songs and this CD.

Dan arrived in Memphis in October 1986. He played Beale Street with Uncle Ben for a couple of years then later with the Beale Street Cadillac Blues Band. They played mostly in Handy Park. The seven years or so, playing almost every night, helped Dan improve his guitar work.

Greens Lounge was Dan's next gig playing with Hollywood All Stars. Later, he played in some clubs on Beale with the people of the Blues.

Dan went back to Maine in the spring of 1996, but after about a year and a half, he decided to go back to Memphis.
