was the first of a CD trilogy that would guarantee Michael Pickett
a spot in Canadian music history. In 1998 and 1999 respectively, this disc
(Pickett’s first solo effort in a career spanning more than 30 years) was
voted Blues Album Of The Year by Real Blues magazine and the Jazz
Report Awards. Additionally, Real Blues selected "World Gone Crazy"
as the Blues Song Of The Year. Surely, one of the many reasons for these
awards is the sharp production by Pickett and Doug Romanow. Also
contributing to the huge success of the album were the cohesive and
invincible musicians who performed on it. Not counting the backing
vocalists, an entourage of 17 were involved with this recording. They
included: Teddy Leonard, Neil Chapman, Slavka Kobrin, Colin Linden, Mike
Francis (guitars), Steve Chadwick, Leo Valvassori, Malcolm McCuaig (bass),
Marty Cordrey, Dale-Anne Brendon, Shawn Eisenberg (drums), Rob Greenway
(percussion), John Johnson (sax), Gord Myers (trombone) and Richard Bell,
Doug Riley, Doug Romanow (keys).
