This astonishing combination of seemingly contradictory is made possible by a decades-long maturation in several bands in which Schorsch has internalized the musical legacy of his personal heroes from Skip James to Peter Green deep into the own DNA. And of course by a dazzling and eventful life, even the brilliantly completed baptism of fire on American club stages.

Recorded in Munich and Texas are these 16 songs repeatedly crowned by Schorsch's splendid shades rich guitar, empathic accompanied by famous musicians of the Munich scene as Ludwig Seuss Uli Kümpfel, Fany Kammerlander, Oscar Kraus, Thilo Kreitmeier, Ferdinand Kraemer, Andreas Stiehler and Dr. Will
