When I was a kid I use to sit and daydream while listening to this song..total bliss..

the layering on the vocals..the tones..the melody..perfection! I aspire to make records like this one day..

Much Love and shout out to my good friend and the super talented Len Burke and the entire Burke family! Bless!
