Hi folks!

Well, you know a band has been around for a while when it releases a compilation album, and this is our second!  When Green Linnet approached us about the possibility of compiling some of our favorite tracks from the past ten years, we readily agreed to sit back and review not only the numbers that we enjoyed recording but also the ones we've gotten the greatest pleasure from performing live.

Over the years we have been fortunate enough to have worked with some very fine musicians, some of whose special talents are heard throughout this selection of music and song.  We've played to wonderful audiences on our travels, sampling their great cultures and hospitality on the way.  It is with all those happy memories to mind that we bring you this compilation of our music over the last ten years.

Throughout all the years that this recording encompasses, we have had the pleasure of working with Herschel Freeman, who has kept us motoring and our spirits high.  As always he merits specials thanks.

We also welcome this chance to acknowledge the people who, although they are out of the public eye, have been so instrumental in the band's longevity - in particular Wendy, Chris, and all at Green Linnet, as well as all of our very supportive families.  And don't forget Maggie, who keeps the band operative day in and day out.  Thanks all!
