"Final recordings made by the iconic singer, songwriter and song interpreter he was able to record before he died from myxofibrosarcoma, it represents his artistry as "one of America's greatest voices," Ė Dave Marsh. The album includes a heart-wrenching take on "It Makes No Difference," Robbie Robertson song recorded by The Band. It's one of the tracks that reflect the depth and breadth of his seminal musical inspirations, including his takes on Chuck Berry's "The Promised Land" and "Let My Love Open the Door" by Pete Townshend of The Who. Foremost among the artists LaFave admired was Oklahoma folk icon Woody Guthrie. LaFave had been given copies of Guthrie's lyrics by Nora Guthrie, to set to music and album includes three songs Hailed as "one of the finest Dylan interpreters ever," LaFave brings his distinctive touch to "My Back Pages," "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome" and "What Good Am I?". He also revisited two of his own previously recorded songs, "Minstrel Boy" and "Ramblin' Sky," bringing to them the perspective imbued by time and countless live performances. The set is rounded out with songs by other writers he admired; Butch Hancock, David Ball and Bob McDill. The album closes on a poignant note with "Goodbye Amsterdam" by folk singer-songwriter Tim Easton.
