Original liner notes:

I consider this to be the ultimate compliment and it is the reason behind naming this new collection of compositions "Stories Without Words".

Special thanks to Fabrizio Alberico, one of his L-model
guitars can be heard on "Time Alone" and "Ann's Dream".

friends and fans. Thank you all for your encouragement.
