I met Mark in the Fall of 1976. We were both freshmen at Lock Haven State College, in Lock Haven PA. I was walking through the residence hall, heard guitar playing seeping out of a room, knocked on the door, and introduced myself. We became very close friends, sharing many guitar licks, conversations, and pizzas. These recordings were made 5 years later, in 1981, during a couple visits from Mark. I had been learning fingerstyle guitar arrangements for my "cocktail guitar" gigs. So, together in my little living-room studio, we recorded these songs, just for fun.
