Another Man's Treasure - Greg Klyma

 from "Another Man's Treasure" - Greg Klyma

Click To Play How's It Goin'

Recorded on “Yessir! analog tape. We used 2.5 reels worth. It was the way to go! “-Greg Klyma


Fifteen years into a career that has yielded seven albums,
dozens of national tours, and the acclaim of folk's most
prestigious reviewers, Greg Klyma's eager fans paid for his
new album. Completing the online fundraising well ahead of
schedule, Klyma delivers an emotionally charged blend of fan
favorites from recent tours, and never-before-heard material
on his eighth album, Another Man's Treasure.

Long known as a passionate and largely positive populist,
Klyma's new album showcases an impressively matured
song-writing talent. Travelling the perilous landscape of love,
Another Man's Treasure admits sadness, anger, regret and
profound tenderness. Going beyond the Woody Guthrie/Mark
Twain sass of recent years, Klyma shows himself navigating
intimacy as a thoroughly modern man. But this blue-collar
boy knows when to swallow the heartbreak, and so the
album rallies with an equal measure of punky sing-alongs
and bootstrap lifters.

Solo songs feature Klyma's adroit guitar and banjo picking,
while the band numbers rollick with great energy and a
chorus of harmony singing, thus welcoming the listener
to Klyma's universe: long drives alone full of solitary
contemplation, landing somewhere in America to shake the
rafters and remind everyone of the love and dedication that
keeps us going.

Texas Road Trip 2013 : Chris McDaniel and Friends


Traveling to Texas in March of 2013 I brought along a SONY PCM-D50 in an attempt to record some of the many sights and sounds of this epic trip. We began traveling West following the old original Route 80 to our destination, Big Bend National Park. Our return trip was more direct.
Had I read the manual for the PCM-D50, prior to using it I would have solved a lot of problems, most notably the lack of a wind screen, which ruined a couple of otherwise great and unusual recordings.
A total of six plus hours of recording is a lot to handle so I’m posting them as I get to them, very slowly. My apologies to all of the musicians that were hoping to hear their recordings by mid-April as I had promised.

These recordings will be posted in no particular order.




So, here is my first Texas Road Trip 2013 post featuring Chris McDaniel and Friends
“(I'm Your) Hoochie Coochie Man”, a blues standard written by Willie Dixon and first recorded by Muddy Waters in 1954 in Chicago.
