Mike Ness - Cheating at Solitaire - Imported European CD - FREE SHIPPING to the US
New/Sealed. Import European CD. Limited Stock.
Cheating at Solitaire is the first solo album from Social Distortion frontman Mike Ness. Released in 1999, it bypasses much of Social Distortion's punk muscle in favor of a more roots-oriented approach to rock and roll. It features cameos by Bruce Springsteen, Brian Setzer, and members of Royal Crown Revue. Johnny Cash was invited to perform on the song "Ballad of a Lonely Man", but was too ill to record at the time.
"Dope Fiend Blues" and "I'm In Love w/My Car" were originally written/recorded in 1994 as a demo of Social Distortion's fifth album White Light, White Heat, White Trash.  Ness also originally wrote some of the songs on this album around 1997 while Social Distortion was planning their sixth album.
