Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of Interviewing the Legends I’m your host Ray Shasho.

BIO: Danny O’Keefe famously wrote the lyric “Highways and dancehalls/A good song takes you far,” and for more than 50 years he’s proved himself right. On his new album, the two-disc set Circular Turns, his first for Sunset Blvd. Records, O’Keefe shows off his songwriting prowess with 17 tracks he recorded from 1999-2017, plus a live album featuring his classic “Good Time Charlie’s Got the Blues” and other favorites. The studio disc on Circular Turns includes new arrangements of several of O’Keefe’s best-known songs, including “The Road,” “Angel, Spread Your Wings,” and “Magdelena” as well as songs inspired by paintings (“Runnin’ from the Devil”), Bill Monroe (“When You Come Back Down”), photos in someone’s house (“We’re All Strangers Here”) and the classic children’s bear Corduroy (“Alone in the Dark”). The first single from the new album is Danny’s version of “Well, Well, Well,” a song he co-wrote with Bob Dylan.
