John Hughey writes Liner Notes for this CD
Hi folks,
For those of you who don’t know Bob Lucier, don’t know what you’ve missed thru the years and for those of you who do know him know him as a great person and a very talented musician. 
I’ve known Bob for a great many years now and consider him a very good friend.
But, the main reason I am here is to tell you about Bob’s new CD. He sent me a preview copy and I am very impressed.  He is like a great wine, he gets better with age.
Bob, I think the CD is great and it’s one that everyone should have in their “play all of the time”
collection. I know it will be in mine. Good luck with your continued success.
“God Bless”…John Hughey
