One thought on “Capistrano Sessions”
Ron Schaner Says:
Thanks for the great music! About a year or so ago I got the gift of “Capistrano Sessions” Just been listening to it again. Great Cd……. all the way around. Such incredible players, feeling, production and recording quality.
My life long friend in Southern California ( since the 2nd grade), Jeff Barrad sent it to me. I was the other music fan organizing and putting on the light shows on screen behind the band., mostly at the Laguna Theater (the Honk all nighters). The Great White Light Lite Show as we called ourselves. He mentioned that he had emailed you back that year or so ago. Listening to your CD today prompts me to write this note of thanks.
