Hey, Sam = thanks for the nice review of Old Man, Young Man. Yeah, that's a demo I wrote 40 years ago and sadly, being on Social Security there's no money to go in and fully produce it. But I appreciate that you enjoyed the chord structure.

Hi Bob, I'd love to hear one day that an artist has picked up this song - it's a nice one! Keep on writing!

Hi Sam,
Many thanks for a kind and constructive review of Heart To Heart. It means a lot when I look at your musical pedigree, quite something. Fair point about the lyrics and I did struggle with that, esp being a 74 year old singing about young love! My voice is out of use right now but I do hope to get it working again, with a little luck. Until then a rewrite would be difficult.
Thanks again and stay safe.
