To the listener: I have tried to weave a musical and perhaps an emotional thread through the pieces I have composed or chosen for this recording. Whether or not that is evident, I hope at least this music will afford a few moments of pleasure.

For the curious among you, there are 88 keys on a piano.

88 Radiate is the medley of popular piano pieces John plays at Vinyl Cafe shows.

'Aurelia' is the tune from the hymn:
'The Church's One Foundation' from the 1937 Anglican Hymnal.
'Olwen' is the old Welsh tune from the hymn 'All Poor Men And Humble'.

To my family and friends for their heartening support.
To Stuart McLean and the Vinyl Cafe for my hour upon the stage. To Don Rooke for going above and beyond. To L. Stu Young for coming across for the proletariat.

To my Michele always.

All seems infected that the infected spy as all looks yellow to the jaundiced eye.
~ Alexander Pope
