Help Me Daddy
John Guthrie's' voice commands attention! That first became apparent when he sang with the jute box (OK! Juke Box) at his grandfather's restaurant at the age of 5. Time passes......and Now after twenty-seven years on the road with the likes of Willie Nelson, Noyel and Dana Haggard, Tom T. Hall, Townes Van Zandt, Rusty Weir, along with a score of others, he finds pleasure in quieter but widened avenues such as fishing and sitting on the back porch in North Carolina with his guitar and wife, Bobbie. " I thought I would like to make an album...something that I could leave behind. I know quite a number of record people, producers, executives, sectaries, you know...Lots of folks. But the only one that I wanted to produce and arrange my album was Gerald Nelson. I talked him into doing the project, but only after I promised to put down my Thunderbird wine bottle for a month. Man that nearly killed me!" John Haywood Guthrie The songs: "Tell Me A Lie" What a great performance on this Nelson & Burch song. This lyric has unique twist. A real life situation. "Atlanta Misses You Tonight" Sitting on top of Stone Mountain thinking about a love that has just up and gone. "Help Me Daddy" With all the news about missing and abused children, this song will get to you. Follow the lyric closely. Does it affect you to even hear it? GOOD then please call you congressman and help get Jessica's Law passed if not already done in your state. "Sweet Loving' Baby" A new rendition of and old hit, originally done by Rick Henderson and Wilma Burgess. "Give Me Back My Heart" One of John's compositions. Too many women in John's life cause this plea. "Radio Blues" This was a country song, perhaps the story of John's life, until Nelson got his arrangement pen on it. Now it could have come out of Europe. We like the feel. Give us your input. "If She Comes Tonight" Now here's a guy waiting for his date and planning what he's going to do...provided she shows up! "Across The Great Divide" A good solid song. A good solid rendition. "True True Lovin'" A remake of the old Ferlin Husky hit. So here is Johns' effort. We hope you find something you like. It am not country...it am not pop...it am not blues. It am different!
