"Thank you very much for putting all of this together.
You have really captured the chronological events
leading up to "Country Gazette".
I had a great time looking at and reading
about all of the guys you mentioned
who had experiences with us.

I have always said that Europeans were more
interested in our folk music than we here in the US.
I am glad you think of our music as an art form.
Most folks in the US just take it for granted I think.

Once again thank you very much for all your work.
I have enjoyed it very much."


"I am very impressed with your
"Country Gazette" web site.
It is very accurate and complete.
Just reading it brings back a lot of memories."


"I just discovered your "Country Gazette" pages!
Pretty darn impressive for someone not here when it happened.
I have never seen anyone do such a complete job.
I am not even going to ask where you got copies of my photos
that I took of the band and others in those days!!
That blew me away. Like I said, I am impressed!

As you know there is even more to the story
as I either travelled with band
or picked them up or took them to the airport.
I also was at all the sessions from the second album on.
And because I take care of the Jim Dickson archives,
I have all the recording tapes including the unreleased cuts.
I have various live programs along with some video performances.

I always someday wanted to put out
all the albums with all the extra stuff.
But the Clarence White Box set comes first!!!
I wish I could do it all, Dillards Box Set, etc.
This was my life back then.

I sure wish more people would buy our SIERRA releases
but I must be thankful for the ones I do get.
Thanks for your support."


"That is absolutely awesome.
I am so glad you took the time to put the history of the Country Gazette together.
I was very privileged to play professionally with some of
the best musicians in the world.
I absolutely had a blast in that band and made a lot of friends."
