Imagination, requires no audience
It merely acquires one after being introduced to paper.

How are you? Man it's been a long time. I would just love to go and record some new stuff with all the gang again. You are just so fun and amazingly talented. I finally moved my butt out here! Hope to get to see you again soon!

Good Morning Bob,
I always thought that you were the brother of an artist from Louisiana named Bill Wray, until Dennis Clifton set me straight. My ears thank you for all the great bass tracks you've recorded over the years.

Bob, What a great career so far. It's great to see some of your credits in print. Are you still cruising your boat through America's and Alabama's water ways? I look forward to working together again. Best to you, Wood Newton

Hey Ol' Bob,
How the heck are ya? Man did we work on good records or what? This is really a great site for getting back in touch with old music biz friends. I retired from engineering in '92 and just retired full time in 2006. Looks like you're still going full blast. Good for you!
Let me know what you've been up to.

Not only have you played bass on the soundtrack of my life, but pretty much on the soundtrack for country music in the last 30 years! I'm also a big fan of Ray Charles and love that he was doing country when country wasn't cool in the very early 60's. playing on Seven Spanish Angels and also the Highwayman tour, pretty heady stuff. Makes me wish I was cutting records and using you on bass.

I absolutely love trivia like that, did not know where the song was recorded and now I do. hearing how you got the sound with your sweater was very cool, and it sound like an upright! I grew up in a family band situation and we played that song for years, and if I remember right it was in 79 that I bought that record, in 1980 Hank came out with the Album habits old and new. If you have anymore storys, I'm all ears
