Hi Lin and everyone,

First want to thank all of you should you read this for your kindness in writing in and for the words. Means very much to me. To clarify, Lin, Mike and I were at the time a couple, recorded those songs, and the reason I could not put my name on the album was because I was contracted to both Al Grossman and Warner Brothers. The legendary Flick was a Tiffany colored coffeehouse in Coconut Grove, Florida with a lot of fledgling folksingers, some who later became legends, Joni Mitchell being one of them, and the Yale Brothers wanted to put out an album. We were living down there and they were halcyon times, banyon trees, ocean, jasmine breezes, Dr. Lillie and his groundbreaking Dolphin Project which tried to communicate with them, and Fred Neil, Vince Martin, Dave Crosby, Joni, Mike, myself and so many others did a lot of sailing, singing, some popping in to hang out with the dolphins. Peter Neff sang there, is a filmmaker (did an award winning 9 minute film on Billie Holliday posted to the web) and has written a book about the now legendary Fred who spent the rest of his life working to save the dolphins and other wildlife. He was interactive with them,and loved them like kin. Info on Peter's not yet published book, if interested in those times, can be accessed on Facebook and there are lots of posts by Grovies there still around. If any questions about those times will do my best or ask friends i'm still in touch with. Still writing novel with new checking in and wish we could all hang out...Lynn
