"Love's Mishaps" was conceived 1995 when a customer of mine from Briggs and Briggs Music ran into me in Harvard Sq.
I told James Herbst that I had gotten a CD player/recorder (this is before I had a computer) and was compiling songs for an album.
James said he'd interested as he was an artist who had experience with Photoshop.
After conferring about the song list, James went to work. He called announcing he had something done.
I had him over for dinner.

I reached into the bag and pulled out....
