    This album is up there with the best. Stunning mood music with a story. Live On My Warrior Son is just one of those songs that gets you just there. Amazingly talented guy that deserves a bigger audience.

    A really nice guy named Chuck gave me two discs' worth of his stuff. I still listen to it sometimes, to remind me of my vaguely Scottish heritage and the years I spent in the cubicle near his.
