"This song has always been one of my very favorites that my father wrote. The lyric is so strong. Part of my goal is to release the unexploited music of my father's vast legacy catalogue.

I'm also launching a new website for my dad later this year which will include a searchable database of his incredible songs, many of which have never been heard before. The new site will also be a place where people can get a lot of information about one of the world's most talented and prolific songwriters."
