This 5th album of mine is more country flavored than anything else, with a few folk rock/adult contemporary exceptions.
NOTES
These songs were written over a span of 35 years. Some were written from college heartbreaks, others about the experiences described by friends, still others about various subjects, both fact and fiction. Two were written at the request of my employer, the National Weather Service. Can you guess which ones? My daughters helped on a couple --- Melody did the lead vocal on "Poet In The Land", and Marissa (when she was only 14) on "Coeur d'Alene". Selection #7 was written in 1982, so it was not inspired by Alan Jackson's "Gone Country". But I'm a huge Alan Jackson fan!

The 60s and 70s are my Musical Roots

Weather hazards, the Desert Southwest, various relationships, following the Lord...it's all here! Maybe you'll be inspired to become a songwriter, too! Be prepared for 70s style harmonies.
