about

We are so excited about this new album and we’re glad you’ve decided to join us for the experience. You’ve known Harpdog Brown as a real-deal purveyor of classic electric blues – Chicago Blues. This new band delivers a whole new sound and brings it a little closer to New Orleans Blues. Still a classic sound, just a different vintage and it’s a whole lotta fun to play and enjoy. I dare ya to sit still!


By ordering directly from us here, your CD or Vinyl will be autographed and shipped straight from the Dog House. We think you'll love the 16-page booklet in every Deluxe CD too! Get to know the band a little!

Here's what they're saying about For Love & Money!

“Hearing Harpdog Brown singing Reefer Lovin’ Woman is a joy with the traditional old school instrumentation here.
I am always drawn to the good old downhome style blues and this is certainly it!”
- Duke Robillard, Legendary Blues Musician

“I love Harpdog’s singing and playing. He’s old-school which is a high compliment because Old School is Real School! Harpdog is Real Deal Smoking and Cooking Old School style. Look out and stand back for the real deal!”
- Charlie Musselwhite, Blues Harmonica Legend

“The old boy is putting it down so it stays there! This album sounds great!”
- Jim Byrnes, Legendary Blues Musician and Actor

"Having watched Harpdog hone his craft for the past quarter century, I was intrigued by this new direction. Take a listen... I'm sure you'll agree he's nailed that vintage New Orleans sound ... complete with those growling Harpdog vocals, 2nd line sensibilities, horns, and overall, a great sense of fun! "
- Cam Hayden, Producer, Edmonton Blues Festival; Announcer/Producer, CKUA Radio Network

“Many years ago now, I worked every Saturday at a record collector store in Toronto, the now legendary, 'Don's Discs’. Many a Saturday, at closing time, I would leave the store clutching a stack of 78's by such artists as Wynonie Harris, Amos Milburn and my all time favourite, Louis Jordan. On his new record, Harpdog Brown, with a full brass section, takes us back to that era of jump & jive. I think maybe he's slipped into my record room and listened to my dusty 78s....who knows. If it's good music and fun you're looking for, “For Love & Money" is the album for you.”
- Dave "Daddy Cool" Booth, Showtime Music Productions Inc

“Harpdog Brown, the modern day wizard of the harp, has recorded his strongest album yet! A larger than life character, the blues dog, works with stellar players including an inspired and creative New Orleans horn band and master producer Steve Dawson. This is a joyful and unique album....one of this years best!”
- Holger Petersen, Host of Saturday Night Blues (CBC Radio & SiriusXM), Natch'l Blues (CKUA), and President, Stony Plain Records

Track Name: No Eyes for Me
No Eyes for Me
Mike Ross/Harpdog Brown

No eyes for me
I saw you pass me by
You’re all I see baby
But I don’t know why
I waited too long
For someone to love
And now you’re gone baby
I think I suffered enough.

Well why can’t it be like that show on TV
Where the hero gets his woman every time
Why can’t you be more affectionate to me
Why don’t I have the nerve to try

Now I was too late
I never gave you no sign
I guess I’ll have to wait baby
It’s the same every time
Should I look the other way
When you pass me by
What should I say darling
If you say good bye

Chorus

No eyes for me...
Track Name: Reefer Lovin' Woman
Reefer Lovin’ Woman
Harpdog Brown

Here come my baby rollin’ down the track
She’s a real gone lover, that’s a natural fact
She’s a reefer lovin’ woman
She’s a reefer lovin’ woman
She’s a reefer lovin’ woman and that’s alright with me

She’s got a cool disposition but she speaks her mind
Keeps me on my toes most all the time
She’s a reefer lovin’ woman
She’s a reefer lovin’ woman
She’s a reefer lovin’ woman and that’s alright with me

She’s got long dark hair, eyes are green
Prettiest little woman that I ever seen.
She’s a reefer lovin’ woman
She’s a reefer lovin’ woman
She’s a reefer lovin’ woman and that’s alright with me
Track Name: A New Day is Dawnin'
A New Day is Dawning
Wayne Berezan

Darkness has found me alone where the wind blows
Caught in a snowstorm, I try to ease my hunger pain
All the women on Broadway they’re running on empty
How could they make me feel more alone

Now a new day is dawning, so bring on the morning
A good word can bring a sinner home
A new day is dawning and good grace has found me
Here in your loving arms

Now when I was hurting, everyone was hurting
I burned so many bridges, there weren’t any more to cross
When I thought I was winning, no one was winning
The curtains been drawn, time for debts to be paid

Chorus

Instrumental

So bring on the morning, a new day is dawning
A good word can bring a sinner home
Well a new day is dawning and good grace has found me
Here in your loving arms

Here in your loving arms
Track Name: I'll Make It up to You
I’ll Make It Up To You
Brandon Isaak

I know baby I ain’t been around
I’m a busy man, travelling town to town
I don’t bring flowers like I used to do
Oh sweet mama, I’ll make it up to you.

I know that, you know that, I know better
It’s all the small things I do
I’ll take your hand and cover you with kisses,
Oh sweet mama, I’ll make it up to you.

I been gone so long, baby I miss you so
I’m gonna come on back, never gonna let you go
I missed your birthday, anniversary too
Oh sweet mama, I’ll make it up to you

I know that, you know that, I know better
It's all the things I put you through
I’m gonna change, my evil ways
Oh sweet mama, I’ll make it up to you
Oh sweet mama, I’ll make it up to you
Track Name: One Step Forward
One Step Forward
Wayne Berezan

One step, three steps back
One step, three steps back

A lifetime spent, toeing the line,
Pushing real hard, just to keep on time.
But the lines in sand, continue to change
Am I gonna have to start all over again
Doesn’t seem to matter how far I get
It’s one step forward, and three steps back

Consider the story of poor old Job
He had it all and he was pure as snow
But he lost his daughters and all his sons
Job asked the Lord, “what have I done”
The Lord said, “Man, you ain’t the only one”

You know the road is hard, but it’s the life I chose
I’ll kick and scratch just to see where it goes
You can hold me up, but you can’t hold me down
I just keep on driving til I hit the next town
It don’t seem to matter how far I get
It’s one step forward, and three steps back

One step, three steps back...
Track Name: Stiff
Stiff
Harpdog Brown

I’m stiff, in all the wrong places
I’m stiff, and there ain’t no mistaking
The good days may be gone
But life just carries on
I’m stiff

I’m spent, and I can’t pay the rent
I’m bent, and I got no sense
All my money’s gone
But life just barrel’s on
I’m spent

You know there was a day
Before my youth did pass away
I’d wake up feeling fine
But now those days are gone
I just keep on keepin’ on
Takin’ it all in stride

I’m beat, on my own two feet
I’m beat, and I can’t find a seat
The kindness is all gone
But life just carries on
I’m beat

I’m stiff, in all the wrong places
I’m stiff, and there ain’t no mistaking
The good days may be gone
But life just carries on
I’m stiff

You know there was a day
Before my youth did pass away
I’d wake up feeling fine
But now those days are gone
I just keep on keepin’ on
Takin’ it all in stride

I’m broke, might need a hot soak
I’m broke, and I need another smoke
The good days may be gone
But life just carries on
I’m broke
The good days may be gone
But life just carries on
I’m broke
The good days may be gone
But life just carries on
I’m broke
I’m beat
I’m spent
I’m stiff
Track Name: For Love & Money
For Love and Money
Dave Webb

They say the road goes on forever
And you know I know that’s true
I drive this road for love and money
Bring them both back home to you

I’ve driven north up to Alaska
Down south beyond San Jose
Been west to Tofino
And east passed Thunder Bay

Playing honky-tonks and dive bars
I played some classy places too
Met some mighty tempting women
But I’m saving all my love for you

Hit a ditch in South Dakota
You know it did not slow me down
I’m still rollin’ down the highway
And I’m headed right for your town

They say the road goes on forever
And you know I know that’s true
I drive this road for love and money
Bring them both back home to you
Track Name: Sasha's Lullaby
Sasha’s Lullaby
Skye Lambourne

The sun is going down
Soon it will be too dark to see you
But it will never be too dark
For you to hear me sing
And I'd sing all night if you would like me to
There's nothing I would rather do
Then sing to you to help you fall asleep

You're the sweetest little thing
I have ever seen
And when you dream I hope you dream
Of all your favourite things
When you hold me in your sleep
And say my name it makes me weep
Tears of joy to know you're dreaming of me

Some nights my heart is twisted
I feel wicked
Wandering through the night
Raindrops mingling with my tears
But do not fear for me
Or my mental stability
I'm fine

I'd sing all night if you would like me to
But there's one thing I would rather do
That's lie down next to you
And fall asleep
