EAN: 633687900051 SKU: CD ALIVE & WELL Categories: ,


This is the 2022 digitized release of John’s first album after coming to the United States in 1978. Recorded in February 1979, it Includes vocals, guitars, ukulele, mandolin, and mouth trombone. Mary Faith joined in a few harmonies. It’s a great example of his various musical loves, as he says in the dedication….

“For all the good guys who showed the way and then had to leave…for Reverend Gary, Mississippi John, and Skippy–not to forget Paul Whiteman and Jack Teagarden or Fiddler, the original Underdog.

Most especially, it’s for Hercules, the Bassethound, my old buddy in hellraising, in memory of those ragtime sessions in the back room of The Pindar. I hope that, in whatever canine paradise he ended up, he finally found a bartender who could make a vodka/milk piledriver to his liking.”
