I am forever grateful to Dave, Duke, Richard, and the rest of the players who found the sounds for these songs that had been rattling around my head for some time. They brought them to life in parts I never could have imagined. For Mark Thayer who did so much more than just record these moments, and to David Cain who captured both the musicality and integrity of these songs in the final mix. Many thanks to James Stephens, Jim Henry, Harry Becker, Rodney Gisick, Eric, Abby, and Laurel, to my old pals George, Joe, Jordi, Lisa, Paul, and Deb, and as always to Nick, Mary and Guy. And finally, to Teresa –who found parts of me in these songs I had long forgotten. When our voices catch I remember.

The interviews that inspired a numbers of songs on this CD also form the basis of a new book by Tom Juravich, Altar of the Book Line. Tom Juravich is a member of Local 1000 American Federation of Musicians (AFM).
