A sparkling studio-full of acoustic collaborators add to the festivities.  Wake the Dead bandmates Cindy Browne, Sylvia Herold, Paul Kotapish, Brian Rice, and Kevin Carr add their talents to the arrangements, as do accordionist Charlie Hancock, borrowed from Euphonia, pedal-steel master Pete Grant (who learned his first licks from Jerry Garcia), and the astonishing slide guitarist Mike Dowling. There’s even a slightly drunken Irish/New Orleans brass band weaving its magic on one track.  Songs include the up-tempo Wake the Dead concert favorite “Gunslinger”, as well as a couple more that may join the WTD set list and more than a few that Danny has performed solo in recent years.
