A fantastic album that not only shows the true pub tenacity of Switchback, but also is a historical marker of the duo just getting their fighting chops. Recorded in the wee hours at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa after a night of playing the Haymarket Club, also located in town. Bruce Larson was the engineer and producer of this must have album.
The artwork is equally interesting in that it was shot by the late world renowned Iowa photographer Larsh Bristol. Bristol shared the love for Wyoming and in particular Jackson Hole, with the band. He also loved the unique characters in Allamakee County, Iowa, that frequented the now-gone nightclub called “Dar’s Place”. One of that club’s denizens was Maxine, who rarely, if ever, would allow photographs taken of her. The coaxing of the band and Bristol resulted in a wonderful photoshoot.
Little did anyone know that a few short years later, both the club and Bristol would be no more on this earth. But the record Nancy Whiskey continues to be treasured by those who enjoy the artwork and music.
