Is it love? Is it addiction?
Almost 40 years since recording my first album, and still it excites me like a child at Christmas.
Finally holding the actual CD. Studying the finished artwork. Opening the package.
Taking out the CD, and listening to each song. Remembering the hours of endeavour.
Every note played by every musician, precious to me. Every song special in some way.
For example, the last song on FRÚGALISTO is called Wave Up To the Shore.
I wrote it in 1972. Yes, 1972. Tried to record it many times. The song means so much to me.
And here it is finally on this record in 2016. And my nephew Gavin singing the last verse with me.
I love everything about this record. I love the songs. I love the studio where we recorded.
And I love the playing , as well as the singing by many fine singers, who helped me bring the songs home.
I thank Lieve and Amelia for the photos, and Steve Averill for his art and patience with me, in creating the design for the record.
Thank you everyone.
I am blessed.
And Frúgalisto, off you go out into the world.
I hope people will find 50 minutes to sit with you and hear you.
It may well be addiction, but it definitely is love.
It’s a beautiful life.
