Release notes from Green Dot Records:
The new spin to an old rocker from John G. Franklin
Originally written by Derek St. Holmes and recorded by Ted Nugent, John G has worked some magic on this classic. From the first note you'll realize that Ted has left the building and John G hasarrived. Start with a 16 second intro with the drums laying down a swinging groove, add a walking bass line, stir in some silky guitar, and thenBAM! Here comes John G riding in on a big horn section.
This 3:39 laid back dance tune (at 115 bpm) has a bluesy, swampy groove that will make you want to work it out on the dance floor. Imagine Stevie Ray Vaughn with a Big Band horn section.
"Hey Baby" is arranged, produced and performed by John G. Franklin ( CBMA Hall of Famer and writer of "Friends" and "I Can't Live Without Your Love", among others) and features Mickey Floyd on guitar and Chris Jennings ( from the Fantastic Shakers and Band of Oz) doing some amazing drum programming. Also featured is Andy Swindell (of Embers fame) on Rhodes. Andy also mixed and mastered the song."
