I'll Never Love Again
(Posted July, 2009): "I am now 72 years old and I also did two other recordings
that I know are posted (somewhere) on the Internet as well.
One was on the Abbey label (recorded in Los Angeles, California) and
the other was on U.M.C. (United Music Craft Records).
The U.M.C. recording was in Nashville, Tenn., P.O. Box 90375 - 37209.
I have been a Christian now for 31 years and my intention
(with God's help) is to record a CD. So I've been preparing for this of late.
Hopefully it will happen in the very near future."
