ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Junkie’s “Love Me”

The Junkie’s “Love Me” is one of the most personal pieces of music I have ever written.
I have held this track from release for quite some time simply because it’s so personally painful for me.

This is a story of a homeless man struggling with his demons, drug addictions and years lost behind bars because of his criminal behaviors. His extreme anger and profound sense of loss is evident. While doing drugs, “The Junkie” is approached by two women with a bible turned to the scripture John 3:16.

He wanted nothing to do with them and in a threatening manner he decides to read the scripture simply to get them to go away so that he could continue getting “high!”
While reading the scripture, he’s fussing and mocking GOD. Gradually something remarkable happens…

When I went into the studio to record this song, I was prepared to record a totally different arrangement… We recorded the “hook” (chorus) the way I normally arrange and produce many of the vocal parts on songs that I produce.

When it came time to record the lead vocals the engineer, Alvin Smith pushed the studio talkback button and ask me “are you ready to record your lead?” I looked at my lyric sheet on the music stand in front of me then I replied ”Hold up.” I turned of the lights in the vocal booth and began to pray silently “Father, help me to deliver your message to all those who need to hear it! Amen.”

I then turned the lyric sheet over to the blank side and said, “ Okay, hit the record button!” I want you all to understand that what came out of my mouth was not the lyrics that I had written…

I dedicate “Love Me” to the person who inspired me to write this song, my late oldest brother (The Junkie) who died while smoking “Crack Cocaine” purchased with the several hundred dollars I gave him hours earlier that day.

My sincere prayer and wish is that someone will hear this and be BLESSED!!!!!
