Here are Zane's notes about this cd:

I grew up playing Country Music. My father, Vernon Prosser, was a fiddle and guitar player and singer. Some of my earliest memories were listening to my dad play guitar and sing country songs. My mother, Ida Prosser, kept a scrapbook with the words to a lot of old songs and she taught me the melodies to many of them. When I was about 11 or 12 years old, my dad began to teach me to play the guitar. We always listened to the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday night and on weekdays after I got home from school and all of my chores were done. I played the guitar and tried to learn the country songs I heard on the radio. All of my dad's brothers played music and when the family got together for a reunion, there was always music. I played on KSTL radio in St. Louis for a year during the late 1960's. I played with a country band in the St. Louis area and in Southeast Missouri for about 8 years. In the early 1970's, I started playing Bluegrass music. I played with a couple of St. Louis area bands for the next few years, and in 1977 I became the guitar player and lead singer for the "Over the Hill Gang." We played together for the next 17 years.

I started off this album with a Hank Williams song. I have been singing some of Hank's songs from the time I first started. Three of his songs are on this album. I Overlooked an Orchid is an old Carl Smith tune, and She Thinks I still Care is a George Jones song. Borrowed Angel is a Mel Street song that was one of my dad's favorites. The song Devil Woman is an old Marty Robbins tune that I have always wanted to record. I finally got around to it. I Dreamed of an Old Love Affair is a song from the 1930's written by the former governor of Louisiana, Jimmie Davis. Old Flames Can't Hold a Candle to You I did for my wife, Shirley. The only song on this album that is a new one is The Frisco Line. I wrote this song about my father-in-law, Troy Patton, who retired from the Frisco Railroad. He tells some great stories about the old days. The last song on this album is a blues song about the great flood on the lower Mississippi River in 1927.
