Notes: 1) This is singer-songwriter Dana Cooper's debut album. 2) Originally, album did not come with track-by-track musician credits. However Mr. Cooper was so kind as to supply the track list of those titles that were recorded with Lee on bass. My heartfelt thanks! 3) You can read an in-depth account of the creative process behind the making of this LP at Dana Cooper's own website Here is a direct link to The Making Of Dana Cooper. 4) According to these notes, Lee and Russ Kunkel were playing as a rhythm section unit, so it makes sense to credit Mr. Kunkel as the drummer for those same tracks with Lee on.
