"18 Years" collection (1975)

From my senior year in high school through my freshman year in college,
I wrote a bunch of folk songs, sharing them with friends, at the Christian Fellowship and many coffeehouses.

That December, sitting on the bed in my dorm room,
I recorded 24 of them on cassette as a Christmas gift for my parents. 

Many of these songs were 'field tested' at various coffeehouses around Westfield State College. 
One of them, "The Traveler", has been recorded and translated by several around the world.
