The absolute highlight of my career as a musician and songwriter. Having my father along side me in the studio. Thank-you for the fiddle playing Mr. Bert. Sadly this was our only chance to record together. I lost him in 2014. This session was magical indeed. Oh how his eyes lit up when he saw the studio. Sitting in the control room with Sid Perez and watching the master behind the glass. God bless that man. God bless the Irish. A toast to the fiddle player who plays for the master now .. and left this for us .. xoRJ
