Tales of the Hana Road
For reasons that will become apparent, 'Tales of Hana Road'grew legs of it's own. This CD has truly become a blend of old home Texas/ new home Hawaii and has given me the peace and time I needed to express what those roller coaster twists and turns and one lane bridges will make you spit out sometimes. Much thanks goes to to my pal and studio producer/engineer, Buddy Stevens, without whom I could not have afforded to do this project. And much thanks to my best friend and wife of my life, my one and only girl, Elizaearle, who was my secretary up and down the Hana Road. Thanks to my Good Lord of who's penman I am, penning the words He has given me. A special thanks goes out to John Hunter for working so hard to get this CD released in a most expeditious manner. Toward the end of the two years it took to record and engineer this album, I contacted an old friend from the past who had probably not heard from me in years. Actually Buddy sent a MP3 file and wrote seeking a quote for this CD. Instead Anyone who buys or hears this CD and reads these words, it will be because of the efforts of Phil York. At 63 years of age, I do not for the life of me understand what it is that is taking place and going on in my life, but my God has certainly delivered me to the angels, for I am soaring amongst the clouds with the eagles. Thank you Phil. I'd like to say a bit about each song, but instead, I will let them speak for themselves. The late great unknown Carter O'Neill played with me for 11 years and this was to be his last recording, and I think his swan song. God bless you Carter, dis'song wouldn'ta been nuttin wit'out you my brudda!!!!!! Lastly but not leastly, there has been a guiding force in my life for almost 34 years now, that was special delivery from God Himself. I call her my angel, she is my best friend, she is my soul mate, she is the love of my life, and I am crazy about her, my wife, Elizabeth Earle Moore Brown. I love ya Lizzard, I love ya Moore. God Bless, Harley.
