Corrected "Cosmic Rumpus" Liner Notes
Due to an error in the printing of the CD package of "Cosmic Rumpus", some of Phil's liner notes got cut-off. Below are Phil's notes as they were meant to appear in the packaging.
In many ways, I feel this is one of my favorite instrumental albums I’ve been involved with. One of the reasons I feel this is because Jack and John provided me with great tracks which allowed me the freedom to explore sounds and play the kind of guitar that kept my interest alive in the performance. The final result was a truly satisfying collection of tunes that with each listen captivates my interest as not only a player but as a listener. Thanks guys for the fun music! On a personal note...
Back in the mid 90s, my brother Mike came for a visit to our home. While here on that visit, I recorded his voice, as he recalled the days of his youth and spoke of his love for music and more importantly family. When Jack and John sent me the track to play guitar to I thought that his memories would add a sweet and personal touch to the recording. So here we have a piece of music with the recollections of a dear brother that I love very much!
Mike is 13 years older than me...always was versatile in many vocations and talented. He used to sing and was the sharpest looking of us Keaggy boys (I’m sure my other brothers would agree). He followed our dad’s footsteps into the iron working business. He has been retired now for many years and lives in Arizona.
So many good memories .... thank you Mike for being my brother ... We love you and your dear Sharon. God bless you both.
