Thanks Fritz. I hold songwriters in respect. Lyrics are more difficult than people realize.

Hello Eric,
I enjoyed your rendition of "It Had To be You", I'm a fan of Gus Kahn and his classic songwriting. Your other compostions are well done and are very good at conjuring up visions and moods. I write songs mostly myself and wish you good luck with your endeavors.

Hello Ray,

Thanks for the compliment.

It's been awhile since I wrote Stinger Bed 1. I think it's mostly VSL Horizon Series. I did it for Video News release. I haven't worked with EWQSLO but I do use Colossus from East-West. Yes, I agree. The East-West instruments don't seem to require a lot of tweaking but I get a fatter sound out of the VSL (with a bit of effort).

Best wishes,
