About the Artist

Chris Gaffney - vocals, accordion, guitars Greg Gaffney - bass, vocals Tucker Fleming - drums Danny Ott - acoustic and electric guitars, vocals Rick Shea - electric and pedal steel guitars Wyman Reese - piano, organ, electric guitar

From the liner notes: One of the most original voices in country music, Chris Gaffney was born in Vienna, Austria and raised in Arizona and Southern California. He has been performing for almost twenty years - ten with his band, The Cold Hard Facts. Whether he's singing about Frank's Tavern, paying a melodramatic homage to Daddy's Little Girl, or telling the story of a drive-by gang shooting in The Gardens, he manages to bring his characters and situations alive with the kind of entertaining urgency that is reminiscent of only the best traditional troubadours.

A Fantastic CD by the late great Chris Gaffney. Gaff had a voice between Country & Soul and he could do both styles and much more all equally well. From the first song "Lift Your Leg" you know you are in for a good time. "Fight(Tonight's The Night" and "Lonely Mile" are more uptempo fun. "As Far As I'm Concerned" sounds like a lost 60's country classic. He is an great story teller and his weathered soulfull voice pulls you into these songs. You can tell he had lived most of what he sang about. His wry humor is hilarious. I only had the privilage to see Chris with The Hacienda Brothers one time (Thanks Hal) but "WHAT A SHOW". With this CD I now have all of his solo CD's that I know of and of course the fantastic Hacienda Brothers CD's. I hope this CD and his others will be re-released or even better a Gaff box set. His music was melting pot of country, roots rock, soul, and norteño. Buy any Chris Gaffney Or Hacienda Brothers CD and turn it up and enjoy.

Oh! How I miss Chris Gaffney!! Such a fine singer/songwriter. There was nothing pretentious about Mr. Gaffney; what you saw and heard was exactly what you got! He could sing the blues as well as anyone; he could rock out with the best of them, and he could serenade a Spanish love song or ballad that would send you packing and headed south! I firmly believe had his time on earth with us mortals extended to a full and long life he would have "made it" in the big time. He surely deserved that long before he died. His band was and still is simply outstanding, managing to somehow anticipate Mr. Gaffney's every move and mood faster than a speeding bullet! This particular record is one of my personal favorites with such instant classics as "Six Nights A Week" and the soulful and bluesy "King Of The Blues." There isn't a bad song on this record! In fact, I don't think there is a bad "Gaffney" song, period. The idea that there will be no more soulful and heartfelt songs coming from Mr. Gaffney is a downer, indeed. Buy this record, and cherish it.
