Most of the songs on Bolivar Blues are co-written songs from last year. The scenery is from the Bayou, the Gulf of Mexico, the high desert of Winnemucca, a Rock Mountain aspen grove, spiders, sedan Fords, Covington girls, washboard roads, dead clowns, the other side of this life, broken hands, bruised heads, broken hearts, autoharps and San Franciso motel rooms. "POET, SOLDIER, WISE MAN, KING" It's a collaboration of Jonathan Singleton, Bruce Wallace, Ted Jones and myself. Great collection of songs in the spirit of the Travelling Wilbury’s, the Highway Men, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. "LONG GREEN HOUR" Is from a poem about Absinthe, the Green Fairy. The linoleum carving on the cover is of Wormwood, the main ingredient in the once banned substance. Recorded in 2004, the songs are all original. The basic tracks were recorded in East Nashville in Little Hollywood Studios, formerly the house of guitar great, Grady Martin and later,home to legend Marty Robbins. Overdubs were recorded with my neighbor Thomm Jutz at our houses. I am grateful to a lot of friends and players who helped on my first CD, reviewed in Boise Weekly, Maverick Magazine, Mix Magazine and other publications. " I know a place where the fairies live." Happy Trails! -Sergio
