When I look back, as far as 1977 to my earlier albums, I start to relate my music to growing up.

With my first LP, I was a baby and then with each album the growth is there just like a child going through Grade School and Jr. High School. Some show a little change, a little rebellion, but mostly they show me how much I’ve learned in the past 15 albums.

Now I’m a teenager with this new album. I’m “Sweet Sixteen” all over again! That means I’ve got a lot to learn on down the road to finish my education.
