Album Liner Notes
...LET ALL WHO ENTER HERE FIND PEACE
Thank You GOD/GODDESS, GURUMAYI CHIDVlLASANANDA, MA JAYA SATI BHAGAVATI; FATHER YAHOWHA; this album has been a long, long time coming. I look back over my life and see how all the heartache, the good times and the wait have come together for a reason. I have used material for this album written almost thirty years ago, and some songs which were written in the last year. Yet, there remains an underlying theme to all of what is here... LOVE IS A CONSTANT; GROWTH IS A MUST; AND GOD IS OMNIPOTENT.
I am so very grateful to everyone in my life..my Mom, Dad, Grandmother Alice, Aunt Marie (my namesake), my
children Chandra and Anthony, my grandchildren Carley and Avery, and now Jacob, my lost loves, my angels, and even my enemies, for they were my greatest teachers, but mostly for the SPI RIT which lives in all of them, in all of us, and in all of life.
There is so much love and gratitude in my heart for my extended family...all the wonderful mentors, friends and guides I have met along the way, and the sisters and brothers who have graced my life, and continue to do so. I continue to be amazed at the blend of pathos and ioy of all the fellow artists I have come to know and love, and for having finally allowed the artist within myself to play in the sunshine and be happy and free, at long last.
I have learned LOVE IS ALWAYS; sometimes I HAVE TO ASK; and pride is a shadow... which runs away when the sun shines, but returns to play hide and seek with my higher self. I have learned on the journey to integrate both the dark and the light, and to find wholeness by doing so. It is my fond hope you will enioy the songs I have chosen to share with you in this album and my great hope some of what I do and have done will go forth to bless and heal our planet. Until me meet again 1 love you all.

GEORGE ANDERSON thanks; without you, it wouldn't have been the same; I am forever grateful...remember, if you want to change your life change your thoughts!
Before closing, I have never gotten over not agreeing to front Michael Bloomfield's band for him in early November 1967; when he asked me. I don't know if I was too shy, or just too disassociated. I'm sorry Michael and I miss you. I let another one fly by when I refused to follow up an invitation for help from Ahmet Ertegun when he heard some of my music at Lee Housekeeper's house in Los Angeles the week after the inauguration of Jimmy Carter . Ahmet, I apologize. Thirdly, I iust couldn't get in gear to go back to Malibu to work with Mick Fleetwood when Richard Dashut asked me to return in October 1985. All of these opportunities and I just always blew them off. Well, I finally agreed to the Universe I WOULD DO THE MUSIC! HERE IT IS AND I HOPE YOU ALL ENJOY IT.
