CD Credits

1. ZYDECOLA

Another earlier song of mine about not being able to get enough of a good thing. This concept has seemed to snowball, somewhat(!), since I first wrote this. Greed is good, in moderation.

An Hommage (hopefully) to the Fai-do-do and the original Bon Soir Moreau, another gem.

Let's just say that I could relate to this one by the late, great Bobby Charles, also RIP (Damn!)
