"Just a year ago we released the first recording of Tut Taylor's Archival Release Vol. 1. It is being met with good response and was a joy to put together. However, this project is not one of the Archival releases, but we did go back in time to pick up part of an album by Tut and the Dixie Gentelmen. This album never gained any wide distribution so I decided to use part of it on this one. I think you will enjoy the results.
"I decided to call it "Flash Flood." The first session came up last summer, 1997, during a rainy, flooding period. That night in the studio the weather became so bad with lightening and wind that we decided to turn off the equipment and wait it out. This session consisted of Beppe, Curtis, Mac and myself. We thank Beppe, Steph and Linnet Records for the joy of having him pick with us and pick he did. Sounds like the flood is coming right at you. Curtis Burch, my most favorite dobro player, as always contributed his fantastic style.
"Mac Puckett, my guitar hero, came up from a busy schedule down in Georgia. Mac is full of surprises, both vocally and musical. I take credit for discovering Mac last spring. He also plays banjo and bass. Hughie Wylie, my mandolin picking buddy of 30 plus years has been performing around Atlanta with several local bands. He is one the original members of the Bluegrass Five and is presently picking with Broad River. Hughie was recently inducted into the Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame - Bluegrass Division, for his contributions to the furtherance of Bluegrass music. He is a prolific songwriter and penned songs for this album." - Tut
