A tribute to a
friend and his
The music on Buddy Ivory's CD "Rough Cut"is dedicated to the memory of a special artist and late great singer/songwriter J.C.Caine; who composed along with the original members of the group Purlz; Brian Ivory, Bobby, and Mike the following original songs: Change of Direction, Organ Grinder, Dime A Dozen, and Pretty Faces.
Performing in the Washington DC area this band was tearing it up for a while until like many groups; they went their separate ways but still remain friends.
It is so true that you never really appreciate someone until they are gone. I remember many times jamming with Jim and found myself taking for granted how gifted he was. He had a voice that got down to the roots of the song and could express the feeling of it that no one could impersonate. He was more than a musician; he was an artist, an actor, and musical illusionist. He could paint the song in your mind and drive it home to your very being. I wish, in retrospect; that I would have told him so when he was still with us.
Jim was a dynamic talent and wonderful human being and it is my hope to keep his legacy alive through the music.
We would like to thank Bobby Shade and Spencer Leckliter for their work on the bass and drums on Alabama Fighting Men and Wait For Me.
