Produced by Shadow Morton

Directed by Jacob Solman

This album was recorded in summer 1975 in Los Angeles, California, produced by legendary producer George "Shadow" Morton. People who accompanied me in the studio were James Burton, Byron Berine, Chris Ethridge, Jim Keltner, Gail Davies, Bill Payne, Andrew Gold and several other great artists from that incredible L.A. singer/songwriter scene. Even though I was still 28 years old when it was recorded, it is the first album I did that I was proud of the songwriting.
