Jim and I went to Grossmont High School (he was a year ahead of me), back in the middle ages. We would go to his concerts from time to time when we lived in San Diego. Jim kindly provided his original song, Highway to Taos off of his Things I've Always Known CD for our video of the Taos Wool Festival which can be found here. Jim is a fine "folkie" and I appreciate being able to include him in the Whole Woman family.
