“Portable Man”

by Dec 8, 2019Music


404My friend, Delmark Goldfarb, wrote and produced this CD. I was living in Conway, Arkansas at the time, I visited Memphis to lay down some overdubs at Keith Sykes studio. In some quarters, you will see my harp parts credited to John Sebastian. When I first heard the song, I knew it was my harp. John did work on the same tapes remotely in NY, but this harp work is mine.

This is from Delmark’s CD Baby site:

UP TO MY NECK has a reliably rootsy rhythm section with John Sebastian blowing harp (“Don’t Bring Me No Flowers” and “Got Something Good With Her”); Cody Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars) on drums and washboard; and Fritz Richmond (Kweskin Jug Band) on jug and gutbucket bass, among other fine players.

You’ll hear Memphis bottleneck wizard Tommy Burroughs sliding through “I Need Your Love” and Houston harpist Randy Byrd who renders a hauntingly stark wail through “Portable Man.”
