(from CD liner notes)

This CD has been a labor of love some 40+ years in the making! Join me as I reunite with the songs I learned to play guitar and piano on – songs I would continue to perform in public all these years! Not only am I reuniting with these songs, but also joining me on some of the songs – two of my best friends from my high school days! On a recent visit to Tennessee, Greg Pryor agreed to record the 1st song on the CD, “My Music”, reprising our performance on a local TV show in Decatur, IL back in March of 1974! The first 30 seconds of the song are from a recording of that show!
Also joining me on 6 other songs is Vince Thomalla! Back in 1973 Vince and I came up with a concept for a Spring high school choir program called “Musical Revolution”! Instead of singing the Gershwin or Berlin standards many choirs were singing back then, we put together a program of more current songs! Some of the songs in “Musical Reunion” are from that show and its 1974 sequel, MR-2!
Some of the songs are simply ones we loved singing from that era! This has been a wonderful journey going back through time to reunite with the music we’ve loved for so long! I hope you enjoy it too and it becomes YOUR – MUSICAL REUNION!
