Phil Gammage returns with a new nine-song album “It’s All Real Good”. For this project, Phil found inspiration in such classic acoustic records as Johnny Cash’s American Recordings and the legendary blues albums of artists such as John Lee Hooker and Lightnin’ Hopkins. The album showcases Phil’s songwriting — all nine songs were penned by Gammage.
Sessions were produced by Tony Mann (The Star Spangles, Jayne County, The Hypno-Twists). Stand out tracks include “Dancing on Top of the World” — Phil’s tribute to the late great New York City music venue Windows on the World (on the top floor of the World Trade Center), “Hellcat Maggie” about the 19th century American folk legend, and the Roy Orbinson-esque “Let Love Begin”.
With guest musicians Kenny Margolis (Willy DeVille, Cracker) on accordion; Tony Mann on percussion; David Fleming (PG4) on harmonica; and vocalist Michele Butler.
