Musician contributions to "Woman Enough" include Mark Channing's Band, First Class, who played the foundation music for "Your Song". Mike McClendon on Guitar, "Rocko" on drums, and Mark Bresky on keyboards recorded the basic track in the late l980's. Mike's beautiful intro and solo have always stood out and I kept them when I added new music to this old track. Mark Bresky did the early arrangement; Gary Shunk and Richard Becker (Pac 3) inspired the update.
"Let's Pretend to be Lovers "contains music provided by Oliver Cheatham's band from the 80's. On this cut, Craig Lane and Kenny Jackson on keyboards, Paris Reese on drums, Bernard on Bass, and Jimmy Green on guitar set this one out. This 80's music still sounds good. Though he didn't play an instrument, Oliver Cheatham provided the emotional inspiration for this music.
