Back in 2016 I had the pleasure of producing an album for my friends Crystal Hariu-Damore and Pete Damore aka Ordinary Elephant. One of the last songs they wrote for that project was entitled "Best of You". In fact it barely made in in, under the wire, but wound up becoming the lead-off track on the album.

I remember thinking, at the time, that I'd love to cover it someday. Then in the summer of 2018, I had assembled a great bunch of players for project with another artist, which wound up being cancelled at the last minute. I had a couple of songs of my own laying around so we recorded them instead, and then we threw in this one for good measure. So, here it is, after all this time, finally all finished!! Enjoy.
