Notes: Jimmy Silva wrote songs. They are tales of common men and women, songs of strong people, songs full of real feeling and emotion. His short life yielded a wealth of musical storytelling and collaboration. Jimmy was friends with people from all over the country who made music a major part of their lives and all were happy to take the time to make music with Dr. Jimmy. From the Smithereens to the Young Fresh Fellows to the Squirrels to the Beau Brummels and on and on. The variety of guitar texture and sounds reveals a player with as much talent in his ears as his hands. His is sorely missed. This is a great place to start your musical association with Jimmy.
Here are a few words added by Kim Wonderly:
I wrote a tune ("Everytime
a Gift") and sang on this record and was a life long friend
of Jimmy's. My Dad, Don Wonderley contributed some of the back
cover photos that were taken during World War II, in China and
India. This was Jimmy's first record, there would be 3 more, Fly
Like a Dog, Heidi and Til the End of the Harvest (released
