I ve always hoped I would stay around long enough to get to make a record of Jerry Jeff Walker songs. He s the guy I saw at 19 and decided to try to be like. His are the first songs I learned. He is the reason we put a gypsy flag on stage. It s kind of a tribute record but not the kind of record in which I record my favorite Jerry Jeff Walker songs because I don t have favorites. We just went into a studio with another hero of mine, Don Was. We played about 30 of Walker s songs randomly, without forethought, and let the performance of the songs dictate the way the record was taking shape and which songs would make it. I could have done 30 more. My main hope is that Jerry Jeff Walker and his family will like this record, and my main reason for doing it is so I can put these songs in my set list without them technically being covers. Time As We Know It is something Jerry Jeff points out when he hears people starting to talk about what time it is… Todd Snider
