Album Notes
While the word vintage refers to a vineyard’s yield during a season this particular collection has only a taste of the yield from several seasons. The test of a vintage is whether or not, with the passage of time, it turns to wine. There’s been enough interest, of late, expressed by fans and friends to encourage my hope that some of these expressions have stood the vintner’s test. I invite you to uncork a few of these dusty old dances with the muse of life’s experience and judge for yourself. I made all but one of these songs during the years 1972 through 1983. The one I didn’t compose is from the capable pen of Malvina Reynolds, “The Bankers & The Diplomats”, which I learned from several sources, including Malvina herself. Like a lot of folks who write she loved to hear people singing her songs and was very generous with us younger folk. As with any publication there’s always the risk that as you grow and mature it will come back to bite you. You may listen to something you put together decades ago and say, “Huh, what in the world was I thinking?” This is a compilation of two albums recorded in 1974 and in 1983. I’m happy to say that, after not hearing them for many years and sitting down to give them a fresh listen, instead of saying, “Huh?” I found myself saying, “Oh yea, I remember that.” and locking into the expression like an old friend. In my life I’ve been blessed with appreciation, encouragement and guidance from people far too numerous to name them all here, many no longer with us. I’ve tried, over the years, to thank you all but for those I may have missed, I thank you now. It’s because of you, my loved ones, friends, teachers and numerous extended families who have offered me courage and support, that I feel compelled to dust off these tunes and send them around again to find new listeners and old friends.
