The Franklin Sessions were born out of the desire to get back to a more organic approach to recording. All of the rhythm tracks included here were cut with one take live in the studio. Kevin McKendree put a great band together consisting of himself on Drums, David Santos on Bass, James Pennebaker on Guilt and Kevin on Keys for the session and we cut 4 tracks. I was so pleased with the sound, the vibe and Kevin’s guidance at the recording desk I brought my Rollin’ & Tumblin’ Bandmates Bill Sharrow, Billy Wear and Tim Hooper back down to The Rock House and recorded 9 tracks over two days with Kevin joining us on keys. These recordings capture the essence of Rollin’ & Tumblin’ and we hope you dig it!
