Won’t You Call Me?

Click: Won’t You Call Me LOB

I thought I posted this months ago, because it’s real high on my list. When I searched for it, I found out I had somehow skipped it. That’s both good news and bad news in way too many ways to untangle. Recorded at Bob Druker’s lakeshore home in Mequon on a beautiful September weekend a couple years back and available on my aptly named Live At Bob’s disc, I don’t know where to start with the thank yous. Mike Sieger and Bill Dwyer playing and singing so sympathetically and of course, Bob Druker for making it all possible. I would love to be doing this more often but, for whatever reason, the opportunities are few and far between—which makes it rare and wonderful, like a perfect summer day in Wisconsin. The song goes back to a period when I had this idea about a kind of folk-ish country music that was artistic and a little left of center. The sort of uptown-ish non-hokey country-politan pop Glenn Campbell was capable of. I get my head in a knot trying to describe it—but it was easier to write than to explain, so I wound up with a few songs along those lines. This one is close to my favorite and I’m glad I had a chance to record it.
