Debut Album re-released with 2 bonus tracks;
"I get along without you very well"
"I don't care if the sun don't shine"

JUST DO IT is my first jazz recording made in 1997 and here with re recorded vocals with 2 bonus tracks that were not included in the original collection. (Since I had little idea what I was doing except scaring myself and having fun at the same time)

The re recording of the vocals of JUST DO IT is especially poignant for me as my constant companion for 71/2 years Seymour (pictured) died suddenly of a brain tumour only 4 days after having a fabulous time at York St being a studio dog and amusing himself and us with his usual antics including making tennis balls materialise from nowhere. He had a wonderful day. I miss him immeasurably.
