Especially for Wendi cover

Liner Notes

This album is dedicated to my wife of 41 years, Wendi Marie Petitt. She is my soulmate, my sweetheart, and the mother of our son, Joe. She is also a warrior, suffering from Huntington’s Disease, a genetic neurological disorder for which there is no cure.

Wendi’s given name was Wanda; she had it legally changed in 1993. The song “Wanda Oh” was recorded in 1985, so her given name is used in that song.

Tracks 4, 8, 12, and 14 first appeared on the album “Umm...” released in 2007, but the audio and a few parts have been revised for this album.

My hope is that the music and its variety will appeal to listeners of all ages, not just those deeply in love.
