ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"LEGACY", the CD/Album contains a collection of 17 of my most requested songs written from my life experience over a period of many years. Because of this, it does not fall into any specific catagory or genre. "LEGACY" contains, Pop, Country, Rock, Folk & Spiritual/Inspirational songs.

In Simple Words... there is something here for everyone!
A CD cannot talk for itself so I will explain the diversity.

Track 11, "SARAH'S SONG", was written for my daughter's wedding and is the Perfect Wedding Song for a Father of ANY bride to his daughter. It proved to be one of the most difficult songs that I have ever written. I can tell you this, there was not a dry eye in the church the day I sang this, including mine. So, how does a father condense a lifetime of love into a 3 min. song?
Go Listen and find out...

Track 12, "HONEY DO", is an upbeat, country-flavored song that exposes the Honey Do List. Any man, involved in a long term relationship, has experienced this list.
Oh Boy, this one's gonna get some feedback!

Track 7, "IT'S TIME", is about saving our planet from global warming and was chosen to represent the site www.saveourgreenplanet.org. Join the cause!

Track 12, "FAMILY AMERICA", is a wonderful song to welcome home our sons & daughters from deployment.

Track 3, "BACK IN THE 60's", is about growing up in the 60's, so anyone from that era will connect.

Track 4, "BLUE EYES", is a return to a love/attraction song that sounds like Roy Orbison or Marty Robbins of past fame would have written.

Track 13, "STRENGTH OF A MOUNTAIN". I wrote this after I watched Christopher Reeve proclaim to the world that he would fight and never give up. This song is for all those who face insurmountable odds and over-come obstacles in their life path. A truly inspirational song to bring awareness to any cause.

Track 17, "THE MAGIC ROOM", is perhaps the most surprising track on the CD. This song is a joint venture between my daughter and myself to create a CD for the entire family
to enjoy. The new CD, "THROUGH A CHILDS EYES" will be released shortly. The feedback for this one song has been nothing short of phenominal...it's loved by parents, grandparents and children alike. This music will transport you back to a simpler time and place in a time when it seems the whole world needs a big hug.

Review of Legacy for Radio Sampler Submission
Hi Larry,

Got the CD – thanks! First, I must compliment your daughter on the fantastic co written song on Track #17 “The Magic Room” – you have a talented budding songwriter on your hands. Nice job!! Hope you manufacture that Children’s CD soon so we can grab this one for the Children’s Sampler!

Top song on my list is Track #5 “Chasing Rainbows” for our Adult Contemporary Sampler. Strong vocals, lyrics that adults can relate to easily, nice hooks and change-ups… original, great technically, what more could you ask?

Track #14 “Words Don’t Count” is my number two choice – you didn’t mention this one when we were discussing the album – don’t sell this song short, it has legs and a little of the “protest song” vibe that is still a part of our generation’s psyche. Hit the Acoustic/Folk crowd with this one. I feel sure you’ll get a positive response.

Track #10 “Honey Do” is a cool soft rocker and it would be on the list as well. I’d point this one to the A/C crowd as well.

Track #3 “Back in the ‘60s” is really cute – The baby boomers will totally relate but is not representative of your general style.

#8 “Outsourced” is very clever, but also not representative of the overall album

#11 “Sarah’s Song” is sweet and heartrending, but you don’t want to get pigeon-holed as a “wedding” singer,
your other work is too good to be overshadowed

All the songs are nicely done and we would be proud to include any of them on a Sampler, but unfortunately we are limited to just the one, so I leave it in your capable hands to make the final decision.

Talk to you soon,

~~Judy
