Janice and Roger Maddy wrote and selected songs for this album that they want to communicate to you. These songs were chosen because they reflect the feelings of Roger and Janice and the feelings of their friends and loved ones. These are basic, kind humane feelings that we can all share. The Madddy's goals are to live a simple life based upon good friendship and human kindness, and they hope to share their feelings with others through the music they perform. I believe you will find this recording to most closely resemble early country music. All the song's lyrics have strong messages and the arrangements have been kept simple to accentuate the words of the songs.
