"The One Not There" - Doug Spears @ Chrystal Hartigan's Songwriters Showcase January 2010 at the Broward County Center for teh Performing Arts in Ft. Lauderdale, FL courtesy of You like to watch... gingerman309's Channel on YouTube.
The cover art for Welcome Home is a framed photo of our family farmhouse in Lake County, FL. In the late 1920's my grandfather came to Central Florida and built a two room Cracker shack with no running water or electricity on 30 acres of land west of Leesburg, Florida. As kids came and time passed rooms were added on until it had three bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room, den, kitchen, dining room and large porches front and back. In one way or another every good memory I have ties back to that old house that stayed in my family for 80 years.
