Chuck Giamalvo, Bob’s friend and co-writer down in Arizona, produced this CD of Bob singing 12 songs that he and Chuck wrote over the past few years. They recorded it in Chuck’s studio in Tolleson, with some local Arizona pickers and the Arizona Angels, two ladies from Phoenix that put some heavenly harmonies on it.
The songs are a good mix of different styles and stories, from riverboat gamblers and truck drivers to lonesome lovers and one old guy who lost everything he had, but saved his heart for her. Bob usually writes story songs, like old cowboy songs or folk music, and Chuck usually writes classic country music like was popular back in the ’60’s, so as Chuck says in the liner notes, they have come up with some material here that neither one of them would have written on their own.
