Tracks full of blues and jazz and performed all by one guy. Charlie Glasgow has recorded all the tracks and played all the instruments on three consecutive CDs. He's had invites from blues festivals and enjoyed world wide airplay in eight countries and Canada on blues stations. Charlie played all the guitar parts through Marshall and Fender tube amps and a few over the Eleven Rack system. Bass guitar was done with an Ibanez RB800 direct and organ performed on a Hammond M3 through a 145 Leslie cabinet. A DW kit was used on the third release for a more organic approach. The "Dark Bridges" CD was started in Omaha and then completed later in Tucson, AZ. Of course the wife and I have moved again, but that's life. Much thanks to my good friend Alex Austyn from Digital Pulse Studios in Kansas City for his part in the original recording sessions on "Too Many Nights". He also played the drum tracks on this song and did a stellar job. Thank you Alex! I think that you'll find something for everybody on these tracks and remember that it was just one person on a lonely journey. I can't wait to start on the next album. I also wish to thank Brian May for his inspiration on "The Story" as he's been one of my guitar hero's since the very first Queen album was released. Big Thanks to my wife Elaine Glasgow for the artwork and patience. Elaine painted the Quincy Memorial bridge which is where the track Dark Bridges drew its inspiration. On the back of the cover is the old West Quincy Drive Inn where I spent my summer evenings watching the great movies from yesteryear. Sadly it closed down in 1976 which was my senior year in high school. The second screen does have a giant religious cross as mentioned in the song and the bridge does have it's dark side along with the Mississippi river that flows beneath it. Black Gypsy Eyes is dedicated to my wife whom I met over thirty years ago at a show. Hands Up in the Air is about all the street beggars and panhandling that goes on. Baby Treats Me Good is about my wife and her cooking skills. I never complain after her meals! Trapeze Doors is all about the dark underworld of carnival and circus life. It really should be named Trapeze Floor, but it's also an entrance into another world. Wearing all the hats goes beyond just playing all the parts and running the Pro Tools system for a decent recording. It also means contacting and befriending our wonderful disk jockeys who promote the blues material and even the pawn shop managers who give us that great deal on an old recording mic or hard to find guitar. There are too many people to thank and of course the folks like you who read this drivel and purchase my album or single tracks. Keep listening and I'll keep writing. It's been four years since my last release and I hope to come up with something different next time that will reflect where I am in life!
