most enjoyable
I first heard Chris on the "Riverbarge" last summer. His concert was great and this CD brought back the memories of that occasion and was super.

Janet Ollman

Best of All Possible Worlds
This is Chris at his best. I have had this CD for years and years and it continues to be my favorite. It's an old favorite. When I miss my farm in the Midwest, I play this CD and it helps ease the pain. I laugh and cry; thanks Chris. I enjoyed your performances in Bishop Hill Park on those Sunday afternoons years ago.

Heart-warming lyrics sure to bring a smile
Heart-warming lyrics sung with passion, "The Dance" is all that is honest and true in Chris Vallillo's music. From the title track, sung to his stepdaughter, to the amusing "Hopelessly Midwestern", this CD is sure to bring a poignant smile to the face of every listener with even a bit of life experience.
