Just as Real – released in 2002, this was Dan’s first release on larger label, South Tracks ran by Bill
and Butch Lowery, known as the Lowery Group. This was also the first release to be actually marketed
on a grander scale resulting in the song, “What’s the matter, Otis “ to receive national airplay and sales.
Dan would go on to re-arrange and re-record this song, twice more and introduce a sequel on his 8 th CD.
