This song dates back to my early days on the scene in Chicago. I was playing a lot of open mic nights, cutting my teeth as a performer, and I found an early home at the Earl Of Old Town Pub on Lincoln Avenue. I would saunter in with my battered acoustic, nicknamed Alley Guitar, balanced on my shoulder like a hobo's crutch, and try out my songs. Years Down The Line became a private anthem for a number of us, including my dear friend and fellow songwriter Dahlia Goldstein, whose early passing inspired the song Squeezing The Puzzle Together.
In March 2014, Ralph Mike, and Steve gathered at Waterdog Records' Studios to record some videos for YouTube with Ralph's daughter Fiona at the helm... the music of our favorite tracks from the sessions will be released as a CD. Here are the songs:
