  1. I believe I said this on another of Joe’s songs that was put up by Chuck .

    Did not like Joes stuff when I was young but grew to love all of his stuff as years went on, even made special effort to see Joe in Concert .

    Would have made an effort to see him again had he been able to continue .

    If you get a chance watch his 2013 live concert stuff, you will be impressed .

    Always had great musicians and singers .
