Liner Notes;

So why did I name the album Trek? It has nothing to do with aliens with pointy ears or spaceships (although I do like that stuff). This is a different kind of journey. The recording of this album got started in 1993. Getting it to this point has been a great adventure. Six of the tracks where recorded in Kansas City in 1993. Then at urging of friends I moved to L.A. to further my career. While in the city of Angels I had the opportunity to work with many gifted musicians. Long-time personal relationships ended and new friendships blossomed. My dear friend Cal. Green Jr. who played on several cuts passed away in June 1995. (I still miss him). I hired a new agent and she has become the love of my life, we married not long ago. Some solo guitar cuts were recorded at local 47, in Los Angeles. I recorded two cuts with some L.A. cats at Sound Asylum (those will go on the next album). Then it came time to move back to Kansas City. The album still unfinished, here's where it gets more interesting. A studio in Kansas City (Audio Post) needed to test some equipment so Kenny, Pete and I went in to jam a little bit. The result was a cool version of Memphis Underground. A couple months later I was at Caravell Studio's in Branson showing Rodney Dillard my Blade guitars, we where waiting for a meeting, when Debra Moreno walked in and said let's try something real quick. The result is a very sweet duet of Autumn Leaves. One take! So, throw in a solo guitar cut recorded at local 47's studio in L.A. and then all I needed was a good mix. That was done at Caravell and I hope you like the result.

There are several people that deserve mention for helping make my trek a more pleasant road with there kind acts, wisdom, friendship and love. Many thanks to my wife Joy and family, Gordon Close, Gary Finkle and family, Gary Roudenko , Seymour Duncan, Al Carness, Mike McGuire, David Schubach, Michael Margulies, Gordon Scholes, Cal Green Sr. Ron and Rose Wilson, Cordell Ray (Practice, Practice, Practice...), Dennis Noda, Diane O'byrne, Bob Garrett, Jim Chumley, Rodney Dillard and everyone at Caravell Studio's and to all that recorded this album with me.

This album is dedicated to the memory of Cal Green Jr.
