This (and tomorrow's) song is one of the oldest on the album. Both were originally written in 2011, but never felt finished. The melody and chords were done, but never felt right. Until J's Ruckus was formed. Add a pinch of this and a dash of that..voila! An instant classic that one audience member said moved her to tears.
What was the pinch and dash? An extended intro where we let look Eric Erhardt (tenor sax) and Jeff Jenkins (keys) loose. No plan. No rehearsal. Raw and original musicianship.

On the cup was written tough times don't last - tough people do. Hang in there Andy. To say it made my day was an understatement.
