I WAS SO HONORED TO HAVE BEEN A PART OF THIS ALBUM. IT'S ALL MY PHOTOGRAPHY.
Jackie was the first singer to really capture Laurel Canyon on record. Joni Mitchell and everyone else came later.
We got up in the middle of the night and were ready on Laurel Canyon in front of the Country Store to take these pictures before 6 a.m. Who knew at the time we would be making rock history? If you read the credits, the "unknown" then, Dr. John was on piano. Barry White sang background. Russ Titleman was on guitar. Sonny and Cher's managers, Charlie Greene and Brian Stone produced. We were all up for 24 hours straight. They recorded, I shot photos at the session.
Please read the reviews included on this page as well. Stupid Liberty Records had a bad promotion department and blew the release, but true rock journalists and historians have paid attention and put this album out front where it always belonged.
