“Mist of Desire,” “Wonderful Waste of Time” and “If I Could Just See You Now,” I don’t know if you can really call them remakes or not because it’s a different performance and we re-recorded them but those three songs were Alabama songs. They are there because I had something to do with writing. “Kissing a Fool,” I’m part writer on, that’s a new song … “A Million Times Today” I’m a writer on … a believe I counted up there are five remakes on there, and I don’t count the ones that I re-sang, remakes to me, but that’s perception I guess. 

I’m calling you from the Tennessee River, I’ve been out here fishing.

Ashes Won't Burn by Jeff Cook and the Allstar Goodtime Band

“If I Could Just See You Now,” that’s not new, that was on an Alabama album. But it didn’t get a lot of recognition so for all intents and purposes, it’s new. That, “Mist of Desire” and “Wonderful Waste of Time,” they were all about the same time (during the Alabama days).

How many albums is this for you since Alabama?
