recent speech by bernie announcing new release

"5 EP Pieces is chock-full of great, feel-good hooks. It's an excellent amalgam of styles reminiscent of Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, The Beatles, The Kinks, Squeeze, and Clive Gregson's Any Trouble. I'm having a hard time choosing between "Glad You Came Around" and "Something Better" as my fave. On the one hand, "Glad You Came Around" is a hands-down pop hit, but on the other hand, "Something Better" could be a Smile-era Brian Wilson classic . So for me, I guess it's a toss-up!" - Fett Nashville

a few thoughts about my  3-cd set HOW I CHANGED THE WORLD ...
it's 66 of my songs, written over the past 30 years.
there are a number performed by artists who have covered my songs. the few people who've heard this collection have honestly been blown away. there isn't a throw-away cut on any of the 3 cds. the sound quality is excellent, even on the older recordings, which i recently remastered. the whole package comes in a 12" LP jacket, so it looks like a vinyl record. but inside are 4 cds...3 with music, and 1 with 60 pages of liner notes, pictures, and info on each track. you can load the liner notes cd on a computer or kindle's a .pdf . the pictures trace my entire career, from the late 60s to the present.  it's now ready for your ears and eyes.
