In addition to “A Heart Full of Love,” and “A Christmas Feeling,” there is also an original song, "Christmas Back Home," written by my friend and multi-talented instrumentalist, Jim Christian.

NOTES
A dozen or so years ago, I purchased, and set up a studio at my home in order to record a number of songs that had happened upon me over the course of my adult life, starting at age 35. That evolved into recording many of the songs that I have enjoyed throughout my life, and ones written by friends, met and made along the way. The common thread being, each one had made an impact …

Original songs, self produced, maintaining an acoustic quality and vocal clarity that allows one to garner the substance of each and every composition.
NOTES
We live and learn, and this, I truly believe, will be my last take on these songs which were conceived within a period from fall 1996 through spring 2004.

I did learn from my mistakes, and received my …

NOTES
Like Leonard Cohen, as I recently discovered, I was late coming into the "music scene." I was a married father of 5 children when, at 35 years old, I became entangled in the mystery of songwriting.

A number of years ago, I was encouraged by my grown children to record a collection of songs for my grandchildren to enjoy. It was to be a family affair, and I did get some help from a couple of my offspring, as well as my eldest granddaughter, who starts off Twinkle Twinkle Little Star by way of a recording made when she was 6 years old. We chose some songs, not so much in regards …
