from Jack's notes:
This new cd was inspired by drunken fans telling ol' Jack-O that his 'So Low' cd (Sympathy) is the best thing he had done on his own. Hmmm.....Recorded at the bottom of a bottle with the finest Scully and Teac tape machines, the cd features name brand musicians such as Margaret Garrett, Jimbo Mathis, King Louie Bankston, Mark Sultan, & Harlan T. Bobo. A number of tracks have Jack playing most instruments himself. The songs included are diverse in styles but wear the same hat --- a black fedora. The opening track 'Flipside Kid' is a mid-tempo heavy fuzz riff layered with a Mar-key's like horn section that leads straight into a spaghetti western run on 'Til the money Runs Out'. Displaying his knack for story-telling, Jack-o takes you for a long stroll in a dark alley with 'Nick the Knife' while in 'Hong Kong Girl' a mail order bride makes a run for it to the sound of a funky Bobby Womack wah-wah with a back-pak full of Iggyishness. Paying homage to an American folk hero, 'John Holmes Blues' is full of true-to-heart weirdness. 'Dirty Nails', with its scratchy touch of zydeco, adds a spicy flavor to this eclectic soup. Holy cow shit Batman I'm giving the whole thing away here. Other tunes 'Night Owl', a New Orleans standard by Bobby Loveless, is an up-beat feel good dance R&B number with lyrics that sound like a domestic dispute. 'Black Boots' is a tune about, well... some boots. The inside of the CD case has a pile of photos to look at, so buy it from Sympathy and support the back bone of Rock and Roll.
