"Think'n of You"
Please Come to Boston"
Arranged and Re-Produced by Glen Spreen, after Jerry Crutchfield and before it was released. The time on this article is incorrect. I put 3:57 on the label because it was 4:07 and records over 4 minutes rarely got airplay, especially on a new artist. Another correction is that we didn't start recording the album until the single hit the Billboard charts.
