Thanks also to John & Sara B for my first gig as a born-again artiste & insightful criticism, proving that intelligent audiences are not a figment of my imagination.

This CD is dedicated to Chamath for your love, support, belief in my lunacy, hard work and being the grit that irritated me into producing this. Without you this cd would never have happened.

Dedicated also to Tony and Brian Herriott and family. My life would have been very different without your help all those years ago.
