Album Notes
Peter Evans and Drew Nugent have worked together since 2014, writing music and recording in Philadelphia and LA. Second Hand Man was intended as a single release, their first in more than 2 years. Vanessa Silberman, also a long-time collaborator with Peter Evans served as the Producer.

The session at Mad Oak Studios in Allston, MA brought together Drew Nugent (piano, vocal, trumpet, tea kettle) Benny Grotto (studio owner, percussion), Lennie Peterson (trombone), Midnight Society regular Gary Cattley (sousaphone), Zach Bloomstein (engineer), Peter Evans (resonator guitar), and choristers Laura Evans Durant, Joseph Finder and Greg Urban (“Woodshedder” Chorus).

Second Hand Man was Written by Daniel Walter Dalton c.1965, and recorded by his group, The Back Porch Majority on “Live from Ledbetter’s” (1965 Epic Records #LN 24134)

Randy Sparks (1933- ), the organizer of the group also founded the New Christie Minstrels in 1961. Sparks was the owner of Ledbetter’s in Los Angeles where the BPM track was recorded. Sparks is still active with the New Christie Minstrels and was likely a prototype for the New Main Street Singers in Christopher Guest’s Folk-umentary spoof “A Mighty Wind”.

Peter Evans learned the song while singing with the Orpheus Club of Philadelphia in the 1980s. Robert Ziesing was the soloist whenever the OC performed the song.
