On the 12-track recording, Barone revisits and reimagines songs originally associated with artists such as Fred Neil (“The Other Side of This Life”), John Sebastian and the Lovin’ Spoonful (who guests on his own “Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind”), Phil Ochs (“When I’m Gone”), Tim Hardin (“Don’t Make Promises”), Eric Andersen (“Close the Door Lightly When You Go”), Janis Ian (“Sweet Misery”) and, of course, Bob Dylan (“I’ll Keep It With Mine”).
