Thanks for posting this John. This is wonderful. I love Connie Williams. Is the Testament album (CD?) still available?

Hi Ned,
I sure agree with you about Connie Williams.  What a singer and player!  I just checked on U.S. Amazon and they list his CD as "currently unavailable".  I hope that is just temporary.
All best,
Johnm
