This CD is a collection of songs written over a long period of time by a guy (Dave German) who has played every type of popular music imaginable. From hard rock to finger-pickin' acoustic, it's all here; not counting songs with 3 part harmonies - Camelot for example. Dave started playing guitar in 1956 at the age of ten. After playing in a multitude of school bands, Dave's first professional performance was in a Denver bar band along with Rusty Young (of Poco fame) in 1962. Dave played in several bands in and around Denver, often being asked to 'sit in' when another guitar player was sick or couldn't make a gig. During Dave's Denver days he also played lead guitar for Sonny & Cher, Glen Campbell and Freddy Cannon on their Midwest tours in 1965. Dave joined the Army on a four year enlistment in 1966 and was out of the music scene until 1970. After moving to Europe (Germany) in 1972 Dave started playing the folk music scene until joining up with two German nationals to form the band Westwood in 1975. Westwood, playing Dave's songs, released three LPs in 1976, 1980, and 1982 with songs written by Dave. The 1980 LP, 'Winner Takes All' made the German hit parade and resulted in a full touring calendar. After around a thousand live concerts in conjunction with radio and TV appearances, Westwood disbanded in 1984 and Dave returned to the States in 1986, moving to Colorado Springs, Colorado.In 1997 he agreed to do a reunion concert with his old band Westwood in Germany. This reunion concert turned into nine sold-out concerts over a three week period and Dave has been returning to Germany on an annual basis ever since to play with Westwood.
