Chip Taylor Yonkers NY on Vinyl LP 

The Record Chip Taylor Has Waited His Whole Life To Make - Because It's About His Whole Life! 

If a songwriter of some accomplishment who is also a singer predominantly known for his work in country music was looking for a subject for a deeply personal cycle of songs, it's pretty unlikely that Yonkers, New York, a small city bordering on New York City's borough of the Bronx, would be the subject.

Not, of course, unless the writer is Chip Taylor, who grew up there. With Yonkers, NY, Taylor, a veteran songwriter whose songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Peggy Lee, Dusty Springfield, Aretha Franklin, Frank Sinatra, the Hollies and, of course, the Troggs (who waxed his first big hit, "Wild Thing"), has gone back to his childhood and adolescence and come up with eleven songs filled with warmth and humor, enlivened with spoken reminiscences and packaged with a book of lyrics and vintage photos of the people and places that are their subjects. The songs on Yonkers, NY take us into Taylor's family life and into his discovery of music, horses and girls, opening these subjects up with a skill only a master songwriter can summon.

Musicians:
John Platania - electric guitar
Greg Leisz - steel guitar, dobro & mandolin
Tony Mercadante - electric bass
Seth Farber - piano and accordian
Kendel Carson - fiddle
Tony Leone - drums
