Product notities

This CD is a summary of life events, of broken hearts and loved hearts. Of success and failure. Of forgiving and being forgiven. There's also just a little frivalent fun. Who would have know that when my young wife died in child birth, back in 1969, I would have fled into a world of travels and deep search, from one end of the world to the other. Then trying to raise a family and recover from the damage I chose to inflict on myself during those years. And finally, to then to turn to the songs as a solace and strength and yes, let's not forget the fun as well? It's a crazy long story of a wonderful life that reads like a book. The long short story 'ABOUT' me is that I am, and have always been, a song writer. From the time I first picked up a guitar at 13. However, I never considered myself a 'great' musician technically speaking, even though I do manage to squeeze by playing all the instruments on my recordings. I am other things as well, some more prominant than others, like everyone else in this big old ball we live on. Most of our lives are a story that goes through different paragraphs, and hundreds of page changes as we go. For me, from watching outside the window in the early 60's while Stevie Ray Vaughn and his young band was practising, to recording in some of the most famous rock and roll studios in London, England in the 80's, I have always strove towards making my book readable and out front. I didn't always reach that high and lofty goal though, because of my own internal battles. Seeing the humbled lives of many 'ex' rock n roll greats, after giving their hearts to God, and being tranformed into a whole other person that we could not have comprehended they, as I, had been misled in the very core of life basics, even in their sincerest search? That's life. That's all. Life goes on. The 60's, the 70's, the 80's, the 90's, and watching life and music just simply go in cycles, as some try to push it further to the edge of...well, something? That's life too. The never ending cycle of search. However, 'There is nothing new under the sun.' What goes around, will come around again, and again, and again. In another form maybe, but basically the same old thing. Music is like this. As I watch from my own view, I see so much contradiction of life against itself, that I seek only the simplest now. A simple smile. A simple song. A simple yes or no. Everything is relative. So I put this CD together of both old and new songs. Songs from my days in Europe, and songs from between between then and now. I have boxes of cassettes and Cds of material unfinished still, from the years of raising a family and working my tail off supporting them. I don't say that as if it was a burden to do so. It's been a blessing, of course. The future is still ours to choose, every day. For me, it really started many years ago when I picked up a guitar one lonely night out on a veranda in Paris, France. I had lost my wife and child in child birth the year before, which is why I ended up in France. I was travelling, searching. I never thought I would know that kind of love again. Right then and there, a song, music and lyrics, came to me in a flow. It touched my own heart, as I sang it as if someone was singing it TO me. 'Ain't it good to know you got somebody who loves you?' It was not a highly technical or complicated song. The next day I sang this song in the streets of Paris for hundreds of other young people traveling abroad from all parts of the world. I never stopped singing this song. I sang it in Italian in Rome and Spanish in many Spanish countries. I sang it in hospitals, childrens centers, at weddings, and rehab centers, in the streets, and on the radio. It did what it was meant to do at the time, depending on the state of mind the person who was listening was in. It never mattered how hard or loud or soft or how involved I was at the moment. One could say, It did what it wanted to do no matter what. All in all, this is what music is about.
