ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
My parents, Herb and Eudora, who were a doctor and a nurse, were incredibly talented musically. They both played the piano beautifully and my mom was a published songwriter as well. They started my twin sister Jan and I on the piano at five, and voice at fifteen. We won a national singing contest sponsored by Budweiser Beer and soon were performing on national television and touring the country. Jan and I were signed as artists by Russ Regan, who discovered Elton John and many other stars when we were very young. We were the opening act for such legends as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennet, Johnny Mathis, Carol Burnett, Red Skelton, and many others.

Signing with Capitol, 20th Century, CBS, and Daybreak Records also provided many recording oportunities. I was also signed to Peer-Southern Publishing as a songwriter in Germany.

The first songs on this album were recorded in Kansas and I had the thrill of recording them with my talented guitarist brother, Matt Bunker. All of those songs meant a lot to me and still do--they were healing to me at a difficult time in my life. "Who Will Remember" came to me quickly as I looked at a National Geographic article on ivory poaching. I sang that song with my sister many years later when we went on a safari to Africa. We sang the song as the magnificent Botswana sun set and an elephant herd lumbered to a watering hole. Unforgettable!

Another amazing story came from that song; I had written the backround chant "Ahoombah" just because it sounded good to me. In the recording studio, the engineer decided that it should be sung by a group he knew. He made a call and very soon in walked eight black men in white suits! One of the men was from Africa and he said "Ahoombah" was actually a blessig and meant "God be with you". They sang the chorus and the African man spoke a blessing over the end of the song. It truly was a blessed song.

"You're More Than That" and "Flight of the Unicorn" were both inspired songs and coming quickly. The backround singers were nine years old and most (who had never recorded before) went on to music careers. "Fight of the Unicorn" was also a theme song for a group of cancer patients--they sang it on the bus on the way to chemotherapy. I was
very honored by that.

"I'm Always in Love" is one of my favorite songs--composed and recorded for CBS while I was living in Germany. I recorded this version for a group of 8 year old girls called Pop Candy. They got too busy with soccer--but here is the song for you!

I hope you enjoy these songs as much as I enjoyed writing and singng them!
