ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
At 17 I wrote my first song for Mary Jo, my first girlfriend. I hired a drummer, plunked down $20.80 for a recording session on December 24, 1959 at Sound Recording Company, Spokane, Washington. I handled the keyboards with some backup vocals supported by my sister, Julie. I called my first crude kind of rough edge attempts Rockabilly, a little bit rock, country, and western music. My idols back then were Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis. At Gonzaga Prep socials, I pulled together a bass player, drums, guitar with me on keyboard and did many Ricky Nelson tunes. My favorite, Waitin In School.
