their time and
effort to make this possible (A million THANKS to ALL). We had no

say BASIC- I mean it. I really wanted to have something for my sons to
remember me by, but since could write a book on (What NOT to do when
recording) lol I hope you ALL ENJOY what I have here and hopefully
someday soon I will have another CD recorded as I have many songs I
have written since this CD.

2:08 I went to Trudeau Park in Tweed in 1997 year for the May
weekend (like a mini Woodstock). The song is about everyone who played
and what I experienced.This is the ONLY song on the CD that has me
Playing my 12 string Takamine. Unfortunately the beginning of the song
