Just thought I'd add this note: after one of the first years of selling this album as a cassette album. A happy customer came back to one of my gigs to tell me that he had been playing this album in the barn while milking his cows. Initially this was for his own enjoyment, but he found that his cows gave more milk while listening to my music! So all you dairy farmers around the world!!!...you better get your orders in now!!! Enjoy, Kerry.
