Description
Recorded at Jeff Sawyer's Blue Island Studio 20 years ago, I wrote this song and Jeff came up with the chord progression for the bridge which I took home and wrote the vocals/melody to that. I play the acoustic and sing lead on this, Jeff did everything else except Dani Ryan sang the awesome backing vocals. I posted this song on my jdholliday account here 3 years ago but had that account deleted and I guess it's impossible to resurrect... I have asked numerous times to no response. Oh well. Thanks for listening Jd. ( the pic is myself and my daughter taken right around the time this song was recorded.)

That's a hard story to be easy-listening to : )

You are in fine voice here .. it sounds fresh .. and like this recording I'm sure you have hardly aged in 20 years.

Who's that young fella up there? :-) Great photo. Lovely song, too, JD. Really nice. Liking the arrangement and the backing vocals and your wonderful, Dan Fogelberg style vocals. Thanks for bringing it back to us. Take care, Peter.

Thank you Peter!
I so much appreciate the Dan Fogelberg nod, when people ask me who my music is like over the years I have often hoped that I in some small way emulate him, he was such a talented man. Thanks brother! Jd.
