ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Eric Schneider knew he was going to take est when he learned that John Denver wrote "Rocky Mountain High" right out of his Training. "A Normal San Diego Training"- which poured out of Eric after his 1981 Training- is a whole 'nother animal. Listening to it has been, for many people, a quick review of the est Training.

Next year he did the 6-Day Course, and wrote "I Don't Hafta Do it Alone." That year he and the rest of us also discovered "The Very Best Game" - having a world that works for everyone. He topped off 1982 by writing a song from his long-distance relationship, asserting (We're never gonna get together) "Until We Do." [And they never did, but that's another story.]

Getting engaged on leaving staff in 1985, Eric assured his fiancee (later his boys' mom) that he was with her, "Just 'Cause You 'n' I Said." The same year he wrote "Who We Are is a Key," on a lunch break from a course Werner led in San Francisco, and satellcast around the country. That was the day after he'd been to Introduction Leader mocks with Mark Spirtos, where he'd scribbled on a paper, "Who we are is Love, looking for a place to happen." On the way home for lunch, he wondered "What's the rest of that song?? "Key" is now the unofficial theme song of the unorganized American Peace Movement.

Next year, out of a breakthrough insight, Eric wrote the moving, "I Forgave Myself," and debuted it an Orange County (CA) meeting of the late Lew Epstein's Men's Clubs. (Did you know Louie?)

In 1989, he summed up his training and development with the right-on "Would You Rather be Right?" and gently mocked us all with the hilarious "Talkin' Transformation Blues." That same year Werner declared a window of time opening up, in which we actually could end hunger. Eric wrote the triumphant "Yes, We Will!" and flew to The Hunger Project's Africa Prize Dinner in NYC that year, to hear Willie Mae Wright perform it.

Check out these nine great songs by Eric Schneider, who lives and sings a life of Transformation, and wakes us up with each tune. When you buy this exciting collection, email your receipt to ericapril46@gmail.com, for a free set of all the lyrics, so you can sing along.
