Pete’s newest release, Lake County All-Star, is chock full o’ the classic pie-eyed, musical nuggets you’ve come to expect. Equal parts tobacco-soaked vocals, whiskey-soaked guitars and urine-soaked quintessence, the result is a heady brew of a life lived to its limits, both with and without regrets. It’s a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll and a whole lotta barroom sing-along. Recorded in Libertyville, IL by the supple hands of Ed Tinley and rounded out with strong supporting performances by luminaries Ike Reilly, multi-talented John Pirruccello, long time guitarist Jim O’Donnell and his trusted drumming friend Phil Levin, Lake County All-Star is a disk that’ll make you want to stay up all night and drain a keg or three. Sure, you’ll wake up dehydrated and jonesin’ for a hot cup of joe but, like Pie-Eyed Pete, you wouldn’t want it to end up any other way.
