I had an argument with my wife and I was creating some of these lyrics on the spot. Michael Boni was a real joy to play with and I remember these kind of musical tangents with him with great nostalgic fondness. You'll hear someone say, "Nice Hungarian tune ..." in the background of this recording -- that was my dear old Dad commenting.
"Listen ... don't walk away ...
I keep feeling like there's something more to say ..."
About This Recording: I was transferring tape copies of "old stuff" to digital format when I came across a cassette tape labeled Graham's w/Boni: 1976. I don't know how many songs we recorded that night, but four were transferred to a cassette copy. The Graham House was a big ol' farm house we rented just before my daughter Michele was born ... I always called it "The Graham House" because that was the landlord's name. Michael Boni was up for a visit from Philadelphia and of course to jam ... once we got to playing I turned on my TEAC reel-to-reel half-track machine and just let the tape roll.
