Upstart Records is proud to introduce to the world West Virginia guitar wiz Robert Shafer!A review of Shafer's demos was spotlighted in Guitar Player; advance copies of this album won raves from an impressive list of guitarists, including the Kentucky Headhunters' Greg Martin, the Hellecasters' Will Ray, David Grisson (John Mellencamp, Storyville, Joe Ely), Bill Kirchen (Commander Cody, Nick Lowe) and Jimmy Vivino (Conan O'Brien). Shafer's guitar prowess has won him numerous regional and national awards including Winfield, Kansas' National Flatpicking Championship in 1983. For his first electric release the celebrated guitarist is teamed with singer extraordinaire, Don Dixon whose soulful pipes anchor an album that explores the reaches of rock, country and swing -- an irresitible, genre-crossing netherworld that lies somewhere between Carl Perkins, Buck Owens, Dick Dale and Danny Gatton. Tunes include the Kitty Wells hit 'Will Your Lawyer Talk to God,' the smoking 'Bumble Boogie' (a hit for B. Bumble & the Stingers) and 'Just Another Ambush,' a long-lost tune by guitar god Albert Lee's first band, Head, Hands and Feet.
