REVIEW EXCERPT: "Jack Tempchin’s life after 1973 would be a whirlwind of rock star fantasies. He would write some of the finest and best-selling pop songs of the last 50 years. He would tour with the likes of Ringo Starr. He would spend the next 35-plus years in the spotlight as a performer and bandleader.
Much of that changed, however, a few years ago when Tempchin decided to go back to his folk roots. Instead of performing with a backing band, Jack began gigging solo, alone on stage with just his voice, an acoustic guitar, and his harmonica. It’s just Jack, alone, and stripped down to his bare essence... The end result is a masterful tour de force by a master songwriter and country-rock journeyman." ~Raul Sandelin, SAN DIEGO TROUBADOUR
