From the recording Generations
Thomas Hosford, vibes; Paul Hosford, guitar, flute, string bass & drums.
My great-uncle, Richard Mansfield, rode a horse to school and the only instrument he could fit in his saddle bag was a flute. On his last visit back to Albion in the mid-1970s,Richard brought his flute and he, Frank, my grandfather Russ and I jammed each evening for a week. At the end of his visit he handed me the flute and said, "Here -- learn to play it." Unfortunately, I don't play flute as much as I do bass and guitar, but I wanted to honor Richard's memory by featuring the flute on this song. -- Paul
