Album Notes

  • Recorded at Glaser Sound – Nashville, Tennessee
  • “A White Sport Coat” was Jimmy’s second released album, but Jimmy often refers to it as his first
  • This album had a number of influences which led to it being very different. Jimmy met Jerry Jeff Walker and moved to Key West in between this album and his first
