“Walkers most famous song, ‘Mr Bojangles’, has been sung by many: Snider’s version makes it sound like it was written for him.” Andrew Mueller, Uncut, UK

I've always hoped I'd stay around long enough to get to make a record of Jerry Jeff Walker songs. He's the guy I saw at 19 and decided to try to be like. His are the first songs I learned. He's the reason we put a gypsy flag on stage. Its kind of a tribute record but not the kind where I record my favorite Jerry Jeff Walker songs because I don't have favorites. So we just went into a studio and played about 30 of them randomly and without forethought and let the performances of the songs dictate the way the record was taking shape and what songs would make it. I coulda done 30 more. My main hope is that Jerry Jeff Walker and his family with like this record. My main reason for doing it is so I can put these songs in my set list without them technically being "covers" anymore. –todd snider
