One-Take Jake is an all-acoustic album featuring brand new acoustic recordings of some of my older songs, along with some new tunes, and a few covers. Each song was tracked "in one”; vocals and guitar recorded together with no other instruments and no overdubs. I wanted to record an album that was a good representation of what I do live, and for better or worse, this is that album. There are mistakes, and I claim every one of them. But I’ll feel better letting you hear them than I would trying to hide them from you. Such is life.
