Civil War Battle Ballads (remastered)

I wrote these songs in 2008 and recorded them live in my basement using 2 mics and my guitar. I’ve never been able to stay away from them for long, because I’ve never been able to stay away from the Civil War for long. Anybody who has seen my library can attest to that.

A few months back I gave copies (I only had 4th or 5th generation mp3s) to Tom Borthwick at Sound Investments and asked if he could work with them. And did he ever. Every note….every breath….every brush of every string….is now right where it should be. When you need songs mastered, you take them to Tom and you leave him be. There is nobody better. So if you don’t like the songs, it’s not because they don’t sound good. When Tom touches songs, they all sound good. If they suck, it’s on me. The guy who wrote them.

Not many songwriters sit down and write 10 songs, each named for a major battle of our Civil War. But I like to think I’m not like most songwriters. I figure if they interest me, they may interest some of you.

Anyway, give a listen won’t you? I’d love to hear from you.
