Jazzed Up Blues with a twinge of Folkyness.

Bill Liggett and Ruddy Nickel is the result of a live studio recording session at "Chris Sipos Music Studio" in the Chicago area, consisting of Bill Liggett ( guitar and vocals ) Rick Ledgerwood ( Bass ) and Larry Sell ( Harmonica ) This recording was made in Sept of 2014 while the band Ruddy Nickel was still with their drummer Kevin Lingin, but does not include Kevin on the recording. At the time they were in rehersal for many months and gigging sporadically. Life pressures saw the group slowly drift apart and currently Bill and Larry mostly play shows as a duo.

The songs are all Bill Liggett originals with significant artistic input from the band members. This particular session started as " Lets get the show on the road and record our demo so we can start knocking on doors and booking some gigs ". Then it became " well , lets just all mic up and see if we cant pull off some decent live takes and save ourselves some time and money ". We figured that it would be fine because what we really wanted was an accurate representation of our live sound, sort of , what you hear is what you get.... you like , you buy.

Many other tracks were recorded that day... some tracks were covers and others were originals with takes we didnt feel made the grade.

The title " North on 51 " came about when Larry asked his daughter Deanna if she would please do the art for the eventual CD cover. OR... she might have just came out and offered to do it on her own.. I'll have to ask Larry.. anyhow ,SHE picked the title track AND theme. The song is about " Going up north and fishin and stuff ". Hence the rare and beautiful fish.

This is the first official release of Bills original songs. Being quite prolific , Bill has a huge catalog of songs yet to be recorded . Plenty more songs in this genre ( which is pretty hard to pinpoint ) which he calls the " Make em drink " genre, songs written specifically for a certian kind of targeted venue. Mostly drinkin and eatin establishments. Many more in different genres such as Quasi classical instrumentals , Americana , Folk songs and " Other ".

Bill and Larry have plans to do another CD of " Real Mellow " stuff... so , the faster this one sells , the sooner they can finance it. ( Wink )

Oh, yeah , the band name , " Ruddy Nickel " is a reference from one of Bills songs entitled " Endless Hourderves " ( Spelling... sue me ) which is not on this CD. It goes something like this ,." Down to my last Ruddy Nickel, Glad I dont smoke cigarettes...." so on and so forth " Endless Hourderves and drinks to calm your nerves , sunday morning cocktails on the beach "..

You Know the rest....
