This idea was originally from my 1988 album, Miami Nights, but rerecorded for this album.

The lead for this track was recorded almost a year after the foundation tracks were recorded… due to moving, having to rebuild the studio, and a fractured ankle. All tracks after this one were recording in the new location.

Playing this track’s bass guitar part on MLK Day 2017 gave me a blister on me finger that lasted a month

This track’s drum track is a modified version of a Toontrack MIDI file purchased / downloaded years ago, and the whole track was written over top of that. It was originally titled Jam Song 03 when it was first recorded in 2011, but was rerecorded for this album from scratch.
