Album Notes
Bill Thibeault is a singer/songwriter living in Norwich, CT. He is also a survivor of the USS Frank E. Evans, which collided with the Australian aircraft carrier, HMAS Melbourne during the early hours of June 3, 1969. The Evans and Melbourne were participating in the SEATO Exercise Sea Spirit a short time after leaving the gun line in Vietnam. At approximately 3:15 am on June 3, the Evans accidentally crossed the bow of the Melbourne and was cut in half. The front half of the ship sank in less than 3 minutes and 74 sailors were lost. To this day, because the location of the collision was just outside the combat zone, the 74 have been excluded from the Vietnam Wall. Thibeault wrote the song "Recognition" in July of 2018 to honor his shipmates for the 50th anniversary of the collision. He recorded this album with a little help from family and friends. Jerry Prejean and Jim Devore on guitar, Vinnie Brike on keyboards, Tom Purwinis, Tom Nielsen and Phil Rainville on bass, Steve Gillis, Rob Tischer and Joe Presti on drums, Aaron Daniels on percussion, and Marianne Thibeault and Steve Gillis on backup vocals.
