Notes: 1) Album credits attribute track 6 (“My Oklahoma”) to one C. Young while in fact the song appears to have been written by Terrye Newkirk. A previous version of this song was recorded for Warner Bros in 1971 by Ms. Newkirk’s husband, singer-songwriter Steve Young. A remixed version of said version was later included by Young in his semi-anthology “Seven Bridges Road”, released in 1981 on Rounder Records 3058. Songwriting credits on the latter album indicate Ms. Newkirk as the writer of the song (see images at the bottom). Whether this was indicated also in the 1971 Warner Bros. release is unbeknownst to me. 2) According to, track 3 was not written by D. (Don) Warden but by Autry Inman instead. 3) Album comes with biographical liner notes by Jim Bickhart. Please refer to original artwork for these. 4) In the relative selections, Lee is always credited as playing electric bass alongside acoustic bass-player Roger Bush.
