Take It From Me

The creation of this album ( TAKE IT FROM ME ) has been a long time coming as the recording of some of the songs was only recently done. Yet a couple of them were written years ago. Most have been played one time or another on stage. This is the first time all have been presented together.

I wanted to record them so that our children would have the songs beyond my lifetime. Originally these songs were recorded only for them. They were strongly supportive and suggested this album be made available to the public.

I want to thank you, my extended family, for your support and encouragement. This album is currently only available at my shows and from this website, and only in CD form. If there appears to be sufficient interest I’ll make it available in digital form at a later date.
