Irene Young lovingly thanks and remembers Laura Nyro, Freyda Epstein, Lynn Campbell, Debbie Rubenfeld, Andrea Ravinett Martin, Ann Young, and Vincent Ragone.

The Glass Half Full CD honors the memory of Freyda Epstein and Bob Feldman for their soulful contributions to independent music.

Special gratitude goes out to Bill Straw & Lois Gerard, Virginia Bell, John Jesurun, Marc MacLean, Cesar Torres, Sardi Klein, Kathy Morano, Maggie and Suzzy Roche, Laurie Mattioli, Nancy Lee Russell, Eric & Robert, Susan & Paul, Marina Spence, Will Ackerman, Sonia Braga, John & Sandy Kraehling, Sun-Hee Chrysikopoulos, Dr. Paula Klein, Dr. Deborah Axelrod, and nurse specialist, Mary Ann Juliano for going the extra mile for me during my dance with cancer. Oh, and the stranger in my building downtown who drove me to the St. Vincent’s hospital when the weather was so bad I could not get a cab –
as well as my caring doormen at 41 River Terrace, NYC.

I would also like to give my loving gratitude to Barbara Higbie who emailed to various friends a note on my behalf – and to all the generous friends who responded so that I may not be burdened financially during my year of challenging treatment. I wish I could mention you all.

If I have forgotten any important people, please forgive me. You, too, have my deepest gratitude.

Laura Nyro, Suzanne Vega, Patti Larkin, Jennifer Berezan, Holly Near, Cris Williamson, Cathy Fink, Marcy Marxer, and 15 other women musicians.
