I wrote, performed and recoded this in Maine. It’s part of my “Alone Beside the Road” video series.
This DIY series of songs was inspired by a giant, wet plate collodion Ambrotype my friend Daniel Afzal shot of me and my Ural sidecar motorcycle at John Coffer’s Tintype Jamboree in the summer of 2022.
It’s the picture you see at the start of the video.
Another friend, Dean Clegg, mastered the audio for me.
I originally set out to write a blues-type brag song in the tradition of “Hoochie Coochie Man” or “Back Door Man.” But my song came out a lot sillier than those old gems.
