    I obtained the love for Alan Frew as a youngster. My dad used to play his Hold On cd every saturday when he was at home and my mom was at work. It just etched in my brain and i've loved the songs of Hold on ever since. Not long ago, I had to order Wonderland and it took 8 months to finally arrive! It wasn't as good as Hold On, but at least I have it all!
