The listener relates to each song from their own experiences. So hard to accomplish; but easy if you are in the "Zipperer Zone." Well done!

Look, there are so many favorite tracks on this album, I am having a difficult time choosing just three. But, here goes:

1 - Like Being With You
This upbeat song will have you chair dancing in a New York minute. I defy anyone to listen without tapping some part of their extremities! Great lyrics and Instrumentation. John Zipperer rocks the vocals! What a pleasure to hear. Exceptional back up vocals. Love it!

"Full Circle" is an upbeat song about life's ups and downs. John Zipperer looks at the journey during our lives by standing back and seeing the full picture. It is a song about promise and hope. The lyrics are impressive along with the harmonies. Strong Instrumentation. John Zipperer's gorgeous Vocals make "Full Circle" a song to remember!

Honorable mentions goes to:

Going Downtown - Such a tasty blues groove. These lyrics are sweet! John Zipperer's Vocals will melt your heart. Close your eyes and be swept away by some of the finest instrumentation anywhere. Babies, prepare to sway that head. Yummy!

Sailing Away - This is no surprise for anyone who has heard "Sailing Away." John Zipperer owns this song! His Vocals shine like diamonds through water. I love the groove presented with Doug Lacey's steel drum. This is a feel good lyric and melody that will leave you smiling. Simple, yet complicated instrumentation make "Sailing Away" a winner.
