Inside Liner Notes:

Having enjoyed the opportunity to preview the tracks for this compilation I find myself making an observation that I'm sure I share with fans of Deems. It's about the vibe. The artistic expression that makes Deems who he is, is truly unique. Fresh and original, true to his vision of himself as an artist, each track represents a special moment in time in which Deems' vibe shines through. Perhaps more importantly we glimpse and experience his spirit as well as the good vibrations that seem to radiate from his music.

Over time an artist writes and creates his legacy. Along the way we take notice and look at the body of work that's been created and produced. Compilations like this give the listener a focal point by which to truly sample an artist's work. For those of you who've not had the opportunity until now to hear Deems' music you're in for a treat. For fans, a fond look at what's been created over the years. Music you've requested at his gigs, music you've heard on the radio. It's all here. The vibe and the spirit.
