"UP AT THE LATE NIGHT MOON"  is a line from the effervescently popular song "Your Mother's Dog" which became the name of this collection of songs. This record is a jam or like being at a house concert or party. What began as a get together of some people that had played together in some informal performances began to feel like it might be, a chance to record some new songs and recast some older songs in a new setting. We started out with "The Crawdad Song", a song that looms large in my personal history and has a good roll to it. I was hoping that we'd be able to get a vibe or a groove more than say a perfect take. I wanted more of a "field recording" kind of sound. I liked the combination of instruments as well as the country/folk and rock elements swirling around in the soup.  This was a no stress project. What I'm writing, trying to describe this experience, is more difficult than the recording, mixing, and the mastering of it was.
