“The songs I picked for this album bring back a lot of great memories for me: working in various styles of country and pop music, learning how to play and sing, the blending of the instruments, playing with the masters of their idiom… I’ll never forget them and I’ll always be grateful to Lester & Earl, Vern & Ray, David, Gordan, James, Buck, Emmylou, Ricky, Lowell, Linda and Clarence. Thanks also to all the players & singers for a great job. // - Herb”.
