November 2022
Christmas is approaching and I wanted to make a new CD for my sisters and other family members as they have not heard my music for a long time. I have selected some of my favorite recordings to put on this CD which I call "Collection One". These are mainly rock songs and most are covers but there are a few original tunes in the mix as well. Most have vocals but there are a few instrumentals also. Some of these songs were recorded long ago but there are some new recordings also.

For the most part I played all of the instruments used during these recording  (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, piano, synthesizers and various percussion instruments) and sing most of the vocal parts in every song. My friend, Paul Douglass, played the drums and congas on many of these songs and sung background vocals as well. Chris Redd played lead guitar on some of the tunes and bass guitar on others. I've tried to note who played what on each recording below.

  -- I want to make one thing perfectly clear --
I record these songs with total respect for the artists that wrote and performed them originally. I never have and never will try to make money on these recordings. This CD cannot be sold for any reason because I don't own the rights to most of the songs. I record these songs for myself, my family and my friends only, never to make money.

It is best to listen to these songs with headphones as that is how I recorded and mixed them.
