A message from Gary Floater:
I would like to thank Puffy Dan Walters, Flip Dickerson, Brandon Wayne Akins, and Marvin
Hopkins for believing the songs enough to record them for this tribute album. These
musicians are good people but they’ve still got a long way to go in my book.

There’s a few old songs on this and some newer ones. They didn’t sing em as good as I would
have but they sure tried. I can’t really undestand their vocals all the time and the drums are
mixed to quite but it’s all right I guess. You get what you pay for. Thanks anyway though.

I wish I wadent barred from re-recording them myself due to contractual obligations and
laringitis. I wish the original master recordings I did for Columbus records back in the
heyday of the 60s, 70s, and 80s wouldn’t have gone out of print and burnt up in a mobile
home park fire.

I know there’s better songwriters out there than me but I just always wrote as real as I can.
