Cover art by B. Wedgle

After this recording I drove Russell's car back to his apartment in the valley of Sherman Oaks California because he had a gig to go to. I finally found the place after searching and I backed into what I thought was his parking place & put the car in neutral and kept the engine running. Suddenly a car came down the alley and stopped directly in front of me blocking me in. The passenger got out of the small car and pulled out a big hand gun. It looked like a 45. He put it to my head and said give me your money. Next to me on the passenger seat in my bag was cash. It was money to pay the musicians for the session and for my trip to Asia as I was leaving the next day for Tokyo. I thought to myself I can't give up this money and I slipped the car into drive undetected and floored it smashing the Toyota out of the way escaping down the alley. Miraculously no shots were fired. I drove around for a while and returned fifteen minutes later to the parking garage to discover that I had been in the wrong parking place. I went upstairs and waited for the musicians to arrive. I told them the story. They didn't believe such a crazy story until we went downstairs and saw paint from the other car on Russell's bumper. B.W.
