KennyNeal began the project that led to this record in 2002, and it was originally intended to be a tribute to the music of Slim Harpo, whose own languid, atmospheric recordings are the very definition of swamp blues.
With Slim's good friend (and KennyNeal's father) Raful Neal handling most of the vocals, and, of course, the harmonica work, and with some of the members of Harpo's band also on-board, ten tracks were recorded before the elder Neal was diagnosed with bone cancer.
Raful Neal died on September 1, 2004, and when KennyNeal eventually returned to the project tapes, the album had turned into a tribute to Raful.
