‘Baker St 205’ is a killer blues original which playfully touches on their experiences playing on street corners growing up. Recorded live, using the same techniques and approach as Muddy Waters records, this track shows off the watertight live performance experience that CC Smugglers have become known for.
‘Grumpy’ was voted on to the album by the fans. Richie explains, ‘‘This track is a ripping original old-timey fiddle tune that goes back to our roots as Guerrilla Buskers. Originally written for a beloved resident of the care home that we used to work at it
quickly became a staple in our live show and has now finally been recorded, capturing the live feel and authentic processes and techniques in the studio’’
‘’The pledger support on this album has been humbling, to be able to make an album that represents our entire journey is the dream. Through pledge music so many of the fans that have supported us over the years have been able to be a wonderful and crucial part of this albums story, this makes me proud.’’
