Best of Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah CD cover

$24.95 + $5.95 S&H

The Best Of Skip Haynes and Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah - fans favorite songs spanning 20 years of music from AHJ – one of Chicago’s favorite country folk rock bands.

The classic Midwest hit song Lake Shore Drive is the title track.
Seventeen digitally re-mastered songs taken from the six albums the band released from the Seventies through the Nineties. One of the seminal folk-rock bands of Chicago and the Midwest - anyone who was into music in the Midwest at that time will love this CD – so will anyone who loves Americana,Triple A or Country music.

Featuring the recently rediscovered original version of their classic Chicago hit song, “Lake Shore Drive”. The CD contains twelve more of the best (as chosen by their fans) original Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah songs along with the group’s distinctive interpretations of classics such as Steve Goodman’s “City of New Orleans”, Bob Dylan’s “Long Time Comin’”, John Prine’s “Illegal Smile” and John Lennon and Paul McCartney’s “Norwegian Wood”.

“Once I began going through all of our masters I found the original version with the solo we had to leave out because of time constrictions – three and a half minutes being the optimum time recognized to get a song airplay at the time we recorded the song,” says Skip Haynes. “So, we put it back in to create the original intended arrangement for Lake Shore Drive.”

Long Time Coming

I've spent half of my life in Chicago and half of my life in Laurel Canyon in the Hollywood Hills.

Laurel Canyon
– ten songs/stories taken directly from the cradle of California folk-rock – the most famous musical canyon in the world nestled high in the Hills above Los Angeles.

Composer/musician Skip Haynes (formerly of Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah) and producer/musician Christian Neeser have created a musical journey as seen through the eyes of longtime canyon resident Skip Haynes.

Laurel Canyon is based on the history, music and the people who have made the canyon the icon of creativity it is today - from Tom Mix to Joni Mitchell to Frank Zappa to the Doors to Crosby, Stills & Nash to the aliens that live in the caves near Harry Houdini’s place - Laurel Canyon. There’s no other place like it.
