Liner Notes: Jan Berry

It’s been a challenge and a struggle for me after my accident, to regain self confidence and independence. However, I have come a long way to produce and complete this cassette.

Many special thanks to the following people: My brother, Ken Berry, in assisting me with an office and sound recording equipment. My parents, Bill and Clara Berry for their patience, guidance and support in the musical ambitions that have always been with me throughout my life.

Sincerely,
Jan
