With APO's release of yet another superior collection of contemporary blues recordings, it's clear that special things are happening at a converted cathedral in Salina, Kansas, called Blue Heaven Studios. One day, while APO artist Jimmie Lee Robinson was laying down his impressive legacy for the ace release "Remember Me", a scarcely recorded Kansas City harmonica legend named Provine Hatch, known as "Little Hatch", walked in with his wife for a look. After Hatch was asked to cut loose in spectacular fashion with tape rolling, guitar wizard Bill Nye was enlisted to fan the flames. Little Hatch proceeded to record the songs for "Goin' Back", mostly in single takes. Check out "She's Nineteen Years Old" to hear a fine renewal of the Muddy Waters classic; "The Sky Is Crying" for his creative revisitation of Elmore James; and his superlative version of Jimmy Reed's "You Don't Have to Go".
