My very special thanks to Claire for all her love, smiles & inspiration; Bill & Lee for their direction, support and square meals; and especially my good friend John Archer, for believing in me and my music and making this life-long dream a reality. My heartfelt thanks, also, to Chip, Dick, Steve and everyone at American Gramaphone for making me feel like part of a family. It's an honor to be a member of the A.G. catalog!
