Since the re-release of Lucky Strikes & Liquid Gold last January, it’s rare that a week passes without some form of correspondence (usually type-written) from our favorite Upper Peninsula purveyor of Cosmic American Music. Originally issued in an edition of 200, Lucky Strikes & Liquid Gold has finally found a fan base exceeding its initial pressing run. With a diverse blend of ace arrangements and introspective songwriting, there is no apt comparison for this record. The soaring pedal steel and loner rock-bottom lyricism on “Not Down This Low” made it a clear choice and early forerunner for Cosmic American Music.

Jeff was kind enough to sit down in his home studio and record some words on the making of Lucky Strikes & Liquid Gold for our monthly NTS radio broadcast.

Additionally, his 1973 album Plaint as well as his previously unreleased Iron & Ice are both available for streaming on Spotify and purchase on iTunes.

His other two releases in iTunes show copyright Numero Group… are you going to be putting these out in any hard copy format?

No current plans for these two on LP.
