Liner Notes
I first saw Kate perform in 1975 at a pizza parlor in Sebastopol, California. My brother told me I should hear this woman sing, that she was really good. That was the understatement of the century! Kate's soulfulness and music really went straight to my heart that evening and has remained there ever since.

After hearing Kate for the first time it became crystal clear to me that I had to become a musician, and my number one goal was to be in Kate Wolf's band. So I began my music career by taking lessons from Don Coffin (who was in Kate's band The Wildwood Flower), performing around Sonoma County with my brother Scott, and being the most dedicated Kate Wolf groupie around.

In 1977, I began touring and recording with Kate. I also began nine years of the most intense, wonderful, educational and exciting years of my life. Whether performing for thousands of people, or jamming in a living room, riding horses in the Telluride mountains or getting lost in the desert in 110 degrees, having heart to heart talks or getting fired from the band, there was always something to be learned from Kate.

Kate was my inspiration, teacher, travelling and musical companion, and a friend. She taught me to open up my "heart to the tears and laughter..." and believe me, there was plenty of both.
Her soulfulness and her musical is still, and will always be, in my heart.
