I'm charging a whole dollar for this track which is over 15 minutes long. It was recorded during Art's first tour of Japan with his own group. This was a spectacular performance. A legitimate album featuring all tracks recorded that night at that concert hall has been in very limited release in Japan, and pirated recordings exist as well. Art wrote this gorgeous ROMANTIC ballad -- which becomes solid screaming FUNK, for his wife, Laurie, me.
