Bad Ass

from Road Trip Songs by Dave Manning

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    I live on the road, and these are road trip songs. The album was mixed on the car stereo in my tour bus. The piano and voice recorded in a 17th-century manor house in the Scottish Highlands, and the harmonica recorded in a remote Arizona canyon.
