Get Back To The Land

The Notes

Relased early 2011, GBTTL made the Top 100 Americana Albums of the year and debuted at #1 on the Euroamericana Chart. This album was recorded at Hollywood Sound and on the road and is an homage to guitar driven California Country and country-rock of Buck Owens, Jackson Browne and the Byrds as well as Ted’s other influences of Southern fried Rock and Soul like Little Feat and J.J. Cale.
