2009 release from the legendary songwriter and his sons. The moment for this momentous collaboration arrived earlier in 2009 when interest in both a U.K. tour and album coincided with the availability of all family members to work together. The result, Cottonwood Farm, juxtaposes several new songs from the brothers with a handful of treasures from Jimmy's archives - two of them previously unreleased, including the epic, 12-minute title track. Jimmy wrote 'Cottonwood Farm' in the early 1970s for his grandfather, and it proved an ideal focal point for the album, its various movements presenting character-roles for the family's many singers (including Jimmy's father Bob and his youngest daughter Camila). 'Even though I didn't know it at the time,' Jimmy says, 'this album is the reason that I wrote this piece of music'. Proper.
