Single of the Day…Arkansas Dave – CHOCOLATE JESUS

arkansas dave x
Arkansas Dave
ILA Records

This has been a bit of a stop-start release for me, with some confusion over the release date; but it’s here NOW and is hopefully a fantastic teaser/taster for the album that will be released in early 2018.
A onetime member of Guitar Shorty’s band Arkansas Dave; funnily enough comes from Arkansas and was brought up in a home split down the middle with Fundamental Christianity and drug addiction on the other; which no doubt about it colours his songwriting…..and in this case; choice of song to cover.
Much like my relationship with Bob Dylan songs; I much prefer Tom Waits songs sung by someone else and here Arkansas Dave does a wonderful job with his interpretation of a Waits Classic.
Now…..where’s my album?

Released October 31st 2017
