In 1993, Rusty Bladen released his first CD, “Are You Happy Now?” The CD featured full band recordings of Rusty’s fans’ favorite songs. The CD was in high demand, and many copies sold. This was before the days of the digital download, and consequently, the River Road Records stockpile of “Are You Happy Now?” sold out. Due to popular demand and the ability for you to download the songs and album, it has been reissued! The 2003 version features the remastered original recordings with brand-new CD cover art.
It features the local radio hit “Don’t Blame it on Me”, concert favorites “Real Gone Gal”, “Just For A While” and the title track.
