"Going Back" (2010)

I had wanted to record an album of covers since I started making music. I could do Beatles covers, but Motown covers ... that's where I live. It's a bit of a karaoke album. When you hear "Uptight," you want to hear Stevie Wonder come in and sing. But it's like, "It's my record. I can do what I want."

I retired years ago, but I am now officially unretired. My new studio arrived yesterday. I just need to wire it up, which will be another month or so. I've got a couple of ideas of people to work with. If people show interest in these reissues, it would be silly not to make more music.
