In May 2011 we recorded 2 nights live at The Red Shack studio in Houston, Texas. Nanci Griffith flew in from Nashville to sing, Lyle Lovett came in to sing, Denice Franke and Susan Lindfors Taylor came in to sing, Marco Python Fecchio flew in from Milan, Italy to play electric guitar, and James Gilmer came in to play percussion. There was a film crew and live studio audience. We captured 2 magical nights of music and friendship and history. The performances are stunning, and this CD is unlike anything out there. It's a combination live record / retrospective record / celebration of friends. Produced by Susan Lindfors Taylor

"Eric Taylor was one of my heroes and teachers when I started playing around Houston in the early 1970's," he's the real deal." ....Steve Earle.
