A narrative and photographic memoir highlighting the journey of an independent performing songwriter from the days of vinyl and intimate coffee house performance art, into the realm of compact discs, YouTube videos, and digital downloads. Stricklan takes you along on his adventures of writing hundreds of songs, recording, and performing music with a stunning array of gifted friends and colleagues. From the shores of Ambergris Cay and bayous of Louisiana, to the Texas honky tonks and legendary coffee houses nestled in the Rocky Mountains...this a true tale about 50 years of making music.
This book features over a hundred vintage photographs that help bring the story alive. Jim's complete discography, CD catalogue, rare posters, and a player's' honor roll are included.
