Deluxe Edition Includes Three Bonus Tracks, Tribute To Band Leader
Available in 10-track standard and 13-track deluxe editions, Drinks After Work again finds Keith serving as sole producer and principle songwriter with credit on nine of 10 tracks. Longtime collaborators Scotty Emerick, Bobby Pinson and Rivers Rutherford return as co-writers on multiple songs.
Beyond the title track and nine other cuts (listed below), the deluxe addition also includes "Call A Marine," "Margaritaville" (featuring Sammy Hagar) and "Chuckie's Gone." The latter is a tribute to Toby's bandleader Chuck Goff, who died unexpectedly earlier this year. Goff is also remembered in the liner notes:
"This album is dedicated in memory of Chuck Goff, our longtime bandleader-bass player. He will live on forever in our thoughts and in our performances. We miss ya, Shmudlo."
