Solo, acoustic instrumental 6 and 12-string guitars

Running Time: 79:54, with no pause between tracks

Selection #1: Take Me Home, Country Roads (John Denver's first US Billboard Top 40 hit and the specific song that launched him to international celebrity status; written by Bill Danoff, Taffy Nivert and John Denver. Soared to #2 in the summer of 1971, eventually spending 14 weeks in the Top 40. Entered the Top 40 on June 26, 1971.

Selection #3: Green Green (The first US Billboard Top 40 song by American Folk legends The New Christy Minstrels, and, indeed, this became their highest charting single ever, topping out at #14 in the summer of 1963. Initially entered the Top 40 on July 27, 1963--and then went on to spend seven weeks in the Top 40; composed by Christy member Barry McGuire and group leader Randy Sparks. Played on a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar and originally recorded with a 1977 stereo Teac cassette tape machine on 7-22-1985) 1:48

Selection #4: Five O'Clock World: (Written by Allen Reynolds. #4 US Billboard and #1 Canadian for The Vogues, 1966; #16 US Billboard Country for Hal Ketchum, 1992. Used as opening song for the second season of television's The Drew Carey Show (1996-'97). 1976 Martin D-35.

Selection #6: Song Sung Blue (A #1 effort for singer and song's composer Neil Diamond during the late Spring and Summer of 1972--spent one week atop the US Billboard Top 40 charts; entered the Top 40 on May 13, 1972, and remained there for 12 weeks. Played on a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar; originally recorded with a 1977 stereo Teac cassette tape machine on 7-22-1985). 2:11

Selection #8: A World Of Our Own (A Tom Springfield--brother of Pop singer Dusty Springfield--composition, originally recorded by the Australian folk group The Seekers whose version topped out at #19 US Billboard during the summer of 1965. A cover arrangement by American Country Music superstar Sonny James reached #1 US Country Billboard in 1967; I recorded my rendition on a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar through a portable 1978 General Electric stereo cassette machine on 7-25-1983). 1:40

Selection #9: There's A Place (Here's a song with an interesting distinction. It was the very first track The Beatles ever recorded specifically intended for an album, recorded on February 11, 1963, during 10 takes for the group's UK debut LP release, "Please Please Me." "There's A Place" is a John Lennon-Paul McCartney composition that when eventually released in the US in 1964, climbed to #74 on the Billboard Pop charts. Played on a 1976 Martin D-35; recorded directly to stereo digital format with a 1990s Packard Bell computer on 1-23-2003) 2:05

Selection #10: One Dozen Blues (An Inyo original composition. 1968 Stella 12-string. Digitally remastered from the original 1977 steareo Teac cassette machine recording on 7-25-1985). 2:54

Selection #11: O Holy Night (The classic Christmas song; melody written by Adolphe Adam in 1847 to the words of a French poem "Minuit, chrétiens"--Midnight, Christians--by Placide Cappeau. Singer Martina McBride has enjoyed the best chart success with song in the United States, taking it to #41 on the US Billboard Country Music charts in 2001--the last of five separate US Country Music Top 100 entries of McBride's version of "O Holy Night"--all from 1997 to 2001. My arrangement is perhaps radically different than most others. I've picked up the pace dramatically, so that what comes across is closer to what could likely best be described as a "triumphant march." Played on a 1976 Martin D-35; recorded directly to stereo digital format with a 1990s Packard Bell computer on 4-12-2002) 2:01

Selection #12: Beyond The Timberline (An Inyo original composition. Played on a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar. Digitally remastered from the original 1977 stereo Teac cassette machine recording on April 5, 1987.) 3:23

Selection #13: (Now And Then There's) A Fool Such As I (A huge hit for Elvis Presley, who took "A Fool Such As I" to #2 US Billboard during Spring, 1959. Written by Bill Trader and published in 1952. American Country Music legend Hank Snow had already recorded it; Snow's original version soared to #4 US Billboard Country in early 1953; Even His Bobness himself Bob Dylan cut two arrangements, one in 1967 for "The Basement Tapes" and another in 1969, which wasn't released until 1973--that version actually charted at #51 US Billboard. I recorded my own version with a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar through a 1977 stereo Teac cassette tape machine on 12-28-1984.) 2:44

Selection #14: Saline Valley Breakdown (An Inyo original composition. Played on a 1976 Martin D-35 6-string guitar; recorded directly to stereo digital format with a 1990s Packard Bell computer on 6-17-2002) 1:58

Selection #15: Hoochie Coochie Man (A Variation...) (The classic Blues song; written in 1954 by the legendary Willie Dixon, but widely popularized by Blues master Muddy Waters, who took the song to #8 on the US Billboard Black Singles chart. Played on a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar; originally recorded on a 1977 stereo Teac cassette tape machine on April 5, 1987.) 2:36

Selection #16: River To Heaven (An Inyo original composition; played on a 1976 Martin D-35; recorded directly to stereo digital format with a 1990s Packard Bell computer on 2-18-2004) 2:29

Selection #17: This Land (Is Your Land) (One of the great Folk songs of all time; written by Woody Guthrie in 1940, although he didn't get around to recording it until 1944--and the song wasn't even published until 1951. My opening intro, pounding on the lower register strings, is based on Glen Campbell's arrangement from his 1960s album, "The Astounding 12-String Guitar Of Glen Campbell." Played on a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar and originally recorded with a stereo 1977 Teac cassette tape machine on 12-26-1984.) 2:20

Selection #18: Eight Days A Week (A #1 US Billboard hit for The Beatles in early 1965. First appears on The Fab Four's UK-released album "Beatles For Sale"--was also included on the US LP "Beatles VI" The song has variously been attributed to Paul McCartney alone, though many believe that is was indeed a genuine Lennon-McCartney collaboration. I recorded my own cover on a 1976 Martin D-35 six-string guitar through a portable stereo cassette tape marchine on 9-18-2008) 2:21

Selection #19: Sliding (An Inyo original composition. Played on a 1998 Sigma DMISTCE 6-string guitar plugged into a mixer, which in turn fed directly to the computer; Sigma is a subsidiary of the CF Martin company--the Sigma DMISTCE is an acoustic instrument that includes a pickup; recorded 6-8-2002) 2:20

Selection #20: Nights In White Satin (A Classic Rock Anthem by The Moody Blues, a Justin Hayward composition, recorded with the London Festival Orchestra; first appears on the Moodys' 1967 album, "Days Of Future Passed," then released as a single in the Fall of 1972, during which "Nights In White Satin" placed #2 US Billboard for two consecutive weeks--initial arrival in the Top 40 came on September 2, 1972, and the song eventually spent 14 weeks in the Top 40. Played on a 1976 Martin D-35; recorded directly to stereo digital format with a 1990s Packard Bell computer on 11-5-2003) 3:07

Selection #21: Darktown Strutters' Ball (The classic traditional/jazz song penned by Shelton Brooks in 1917. Covered by scores of folks through the decades. Played on a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar and recorded with a stereo 1977 Teac cassette tape machine on 7-26-1985.) 2:25

Selection #22: Tigris Rag (An Inyo original composition. Played on a 1976 Martin 6-string guitar; recorded directly to stereo digital format with a 1990s Packard Bell computer on 4-18-2003) 2:04

Selection #23: Freight Train (The ultra-classic American Folk song, penned by Elizabeth Cotten in the early 1900s when she was 12 years old. An oft-covered song, indeed. Rusty Draper had the biggest US Billboard success with "Freight Train," taking it to #6 during the late Spring and Summer of 1957--entered the Top 40 on May 27, 1957, then remained there for 13 weeks. Played on a 1968 Stella 12-string; recorded with a 1977 stereo Teac cassette tape machine on 12-28-1984) 1:58

Selection #24: The Letter (The wildly popular #1 US Billboard hit by The Box Tops during early Fall, 1967--it was, in fact, the #1 US song for the entire year of 1967. Composed by Wayne Carson Thompson. Covers by The Arbors and Joe Cocker went #20 and #7 US Billboard during Spring 1969 and late Spring 1970, respectively. I'm playing a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar, recorded through a 1977 stereo Teac cassette tape machine on 1-10-1984.) 2:22

Selection #25: White Rabbit (Written by Rock/Pop singing legend Grace Slick--real name Grace Barnett Wing--around 1965 or '66 when she was with a band called The Great Society. She carried the song over with her to Jefferson Airplane, with whom she recorded her signature song for the classic 1967-released album, "Surrealistic Pillow." "White Rabbit" climbed to #8 US Billboard in the summer of 1967. I'm playing a 1976 Martin D-35; recorded directly to stereo digital format with a 1990s Packard Bell computer on 10-15-2004.) 2:16

Selection #26: Your Love (An HP-Inyo original composition. Played on a 1976 Martin D-35 6-string guitar; recorded directly to stereo digital format with a 1990s Packard Bell computer on 6-22-2003) 2:44

Selection #27: I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry (The ultra-classic Hank Williams song, penned in 1949. The original release by Williams never actually charted in the US, per se--it was merely the B-Side (reverse side) to his 1949 #2 US Billboard hit, "My Bucket's Got A Hole In It"--still, it's one of the more memorable songs closely associated with Hank Williams; a posthumous release of the Williams record made it to #43 US Country Music Billboard in 1966; that same year a cover by B.J. Thomas rose to #8 US Billboard. And professional US football player Terry Bradshaw (four-time Super Bowl Champion with the Pittsburgh Steelers) made #17 US on the US Country Singles chart in 1976 with the song. Played on a 1968 Stella 12-string. Recorded through a 1977 stereo Teac cassette tape machine on 1-5-1984.) 1:56

Selection #28: I Call Your Name (A John Lennon composition. First appears on The Beatles' 1964 US-release LP, "The Beatles' Second Album" and then later on a UK ep album called "Long Tall Sally." Before Lennon recorded "I Call Your Name" with The Beatles, he had actually given it to Billy J. Kramer of The Dakotas, who released it as the B-side to their hit "Bad To Me" (a Lennon-McCartney collaboration). "I Call Your Name" was also covered by The Mamas And The Papas on their 1966 LP, "If You Can Believe Your Eyes And Ears"--a version that inspired my own rendition. I'm playing a 1976 Martin D-35 six-string guitar; recorded directly to stereo digital format with a 1990s Packard Bell computer on 6-22-2003.) 2:35

Selection #29: Reunions (An Inyo original composition. Played on a 1976 Martin D-35 6-string guitar; recorded directly to stereo digital format with a 1990s Packard Bell computer on 4-20-2003) 2:16

Selection #30: On Broadway (The classic song made popular by The Drifters; composed by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil in collaboration with Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. The Drifters' version climbed to #9 US Billboard during the Spring of 1963, remaining in the Top 40 for 8 weeks; first entry into the Top 40 came on April 6, 1963. My arrangement is loosely based on the fantastic cover by George Benson--went to #7 US Billboard in the Spring of 1978, having entered the Top 40 on April 22, 1978. Stayed there for 10 weeks. Benson's version won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Vocal Performance. Played on a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar; recorded with a portable 1978 stereo General Electric cassette tape machine on 7-31-1983.) 2:39

Selection #31: Shadow Shuffling (An Inyo original composition. Played on a 1968 Stella 12-string guitar; digitally remastered from the original stereo 1977 Teac cassette tape machine recording on 12-30-1984.) 2:03

Selection #32: If I Had A Hammer (1968 Stella 12-string); recorded on 3-27-1987 with a 1978 portable, stereo cassette tape machine. A Pete Seeger-Lee Hays composition. #10 US Billboard for Peter, Paul & Mary, 1962.) 1:36

Selection #33: You Can't Go Back To Kansas (My second-favorite John Stewart composition of all time, not far behind his 1969 classic, "July, You're A Woman." The late John Stewart--died January 19, 2008--was a member of the famous Folk group The Kingston Trio from 1961 to 1967; his biggest claim to commercial fame came when he penned "Daydream Believer" for The Monkees, a monster #1 hit in late 1967. But, he wrote hundreds of songs during a roughly 50-year career and recorded some 55 albums, including perhaps the finest example of Americana-genre music of all time--"California Bloodlines," 1969. His highest degree of commercial album success was 1979's "Bombs Away Dream Babies," recorded in collaboration with Fleetwood-Mac alumni, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks.

Stewart included "You Can't Go Back To Kansas" on his 1983 LP, "The Last Campaign," ostensibly a tribute to Senator Robert Kennedy, with whom he'd worked quite assiduously during Kennedy's ill-fated 1968 run for a presidential nomination. And I am reminded that the song holds a very special place in my heart. On an April 26 of a year long ago and far away, I left my home in southeastern Kansas for California. Talk about your "long strange trip," indeed. Several years later, I journeyed back to eastern Kansas to help my folks move to a town in another state. I was really unprepared for the torrents of reminisce and memories that rushed through me as I watched the long Kansas plains move around me. And I kept reflecting on that John Stewart song practically all the way--"You Can't Go Back To Kansas." I'd spent quite a remarkable time in Kansas and to return to the state, finally, after an extended absence, encouraged intense emotions. Played on a 1976 Martin D-35; recorded directly to stereo digital format with a 1990s Packard Bell computer on 1-10-2003) 3:28
