I got chills

Rob Wood Plays it Cool   MRC Records  (that’s MAJOR Recording Company folks)   Even Carl Perkins gives Bob props in the liner notes:  “If kindness, concern for fellowman, loyalty to wife and family have anything to do with the making of a man, then my friends, meet a man, Bob Wood.  Besides being a friend, I regard Bob as one of the very few great stylists on guitar.  Talents are essential n the music business, being a man is helpful in any field.  Combined you don’t miss.  Now enjoy with me, an album by just such a person, my friend, Bob Wood.”   How cool is that!   …. Wait, “being a man is helpful in any field?” …
