Tracks 3-8, and 11-13 were recorded a while back in Roger's living room, all in one take. Roger is playing and singing simultaneously into two artfully placed microphones while sitting in a rocking chair. Although these might sound like multi-track guitar recordings, there is only one guitar, his 1978 C.F. Martin M-38, being played with a flat pick in Roger's singular style; with melodies, counter-melodies, bass, solos and chords concurrently supporting his vocals. These rocking chair songs were produced by Roger Deitz and Randy Poe. Roger has added to these, multi-track songs 1,2, 9,10 and 14 that were studio recorded by Bill Kollar at London by Night Productions, Woodbridge, NJ and co-produced by Lynne White. Final mastering and sequencing of Love Songs; Now and Then by Glenn M. Taylor, Taylor-Made Productions, Caldwell, NJ.
