Shades of BLues

It all began when a friend I hadn't seen in almost 30 years contacted me
and we renewed our friendship. It was as if time hadn't moved at all.
When we were 17 we wrote a song called Lone City Blues one day while
watching colored patterns run around the room. What a blast it would be
to record it now, said he. And so we did. That gave me the idea to write
more blues flavored songs. And so I did. Much thanks to said friend,
Greg "Ziggy" Zarco. Peace, brother. And to the others who appear on this
project: Anthony Hilb, Eric Hartzell, Al Neve, Phil Neumann, Rodney Mullins,
Gordon Buchanon, Ed Lotter, Dylan Spartz, and Miss Sunshine herself
Shannon Cook...
