Not so distant past...
The previous studio release is the Gerry Beckley produced, Heart Of The Valley. Click here for the feature in the Jan/Feb 2010 "M" Music & Musicians magazine.
"Larson devotes himself to interpreting a set of new songs from Beckley, giving them richly sensitive readings that evoke America's heyday while still sounding contemporary and faithful to Larson's own work. It's a tricky move but it's performed with considerable grace here, largely because everybody involved plays with a light, easy touch that brings out Beckley's rich melodicism. What Larson winds up with is a record that feels classically Californian in its spirit and sound, yet its appeal extends far beyond the West Coast as its sweet, mellow tunes have an appeal that transcends geography or even time, as this winds up straddling the past and present quite fetchingly" - ALL MUSIC GUIDE
