The 10-track collection, recorded in San Francisco and released on Floating Records, offers listeners a stripped-down journey of tube amplifiers pushing the speakers to obliteration. Adam Rossi and Jeffrey co-produced, using vintage equipment and Sears Silvertone, Danelectro and Harmony brand guitars from the 1950s and '60s to create a warm, fuzzy sound. Halford composed all the songs, and reigns supreme on his National Resophonic guitar.
That signature sound is featured throughout. "Elvis Shot The Television " rips and tears its way through the last bloated, storied Las Vegas days of the King, while "Door # 3" shimmers and shines with "surfer" guitar while imagining love American-style as a game show. "Good Trouble" was inspired by civil rights leader and Georgia congressman John Lewis. The revivalist feel is compelling and the message is as timely today as it has ever been. A picker's journey home, "10,000 Miles" relates the desire for the road and a lover left behind as it pulls the track relentlessly forward. The disc closes with "Great Divide," a story of a couple's breakup put forth as a metaphor for America's current political partisanship.
