"SMOKIN'' BLUES! Blues is easy to do, WICKED HARD TO DO WELL. Man, you are great! I am forwarding this link to several friends; I want them to hear it too! I just love your guitar work!" Tim Ratcliff and Ken Bailey

"Got that hot blues that sizzles the soul!! i hear ya cookin!" CAVANAH

"I listened to your tunes and they were great. I so love the bluesy sound that comes from the talented fingers of a guitar man. The song about Iraq was well done...I work at the base so I''m exposed to the propaganda on a daily basis. I agree that the flag should fly Half-Mast every day in remembrance of those that have just passed on. Peace and out." Tammy

"TIGHT!!!!! NEED TO SMOKE TO IT !!!!" Blackonblack

"Very Slinky, and down right raunchie, can feel where you are coming from! Keep it working. All the best." JimmYSixStrinG(tm)

Above are a few of many great responses that fueled the release of On Half Mast.
This a real solo effort. DL performs all vocals, intrumentation, and mixing. Only years of experience could pull this off. The album was scheduled for a later release but compelled by the ongoing wars, DL felt On Half Mast had to be heard now.

The song On Half Mast was written and recorded in December 2006. In February, spurred by the ''troop surge'' planned in Iraq, DL sent email to radio stations asking if they would listen to On Half Mast and if they would play the song.
Twelve or more college and Pacifica stations said they would. DL mixed another eleven songs and released the album On Half Mast in March 2007.

DL writes lyrics that are down to earth and filled with the experience of life suffering. Lost love, and the longing for better times are themes woven throughout. The songs On Half Mast and Children’s Children touch on the politics of our lives while And Move Up and On the Mountain are inspirational. Out of Law and 68 South 17 speak to the romance and tragedy of an outlaw life. The three love songs Never Forgot Her, Down To Us and Is Our Love are surprisingly moving and sensitive. A far cry from the raunch blues rock of Faithful that begins this set.

On Half Mast (lyrics)

She’s got one son
fighting in the war
No one can remember
what he’s fighting for.
At night she fights crying,
Everyday people are dying in the streets
And the flags fly on half mast
There’s been trouble in the east
since Maccabees and Rome
If you look you’ll see trouble
right here at home
Everyday mothers are crying
People are dying in the streets
And the flags fly on half mast
She’s got one son
fighting in the war
The other went AWOL
and now he’s in jail
At night she fights crying
Everyday people are dying in the streets
And the flags fly on half mast
Can you feel what I say?
Feel it, its true today
As long as mothers are crying
As long as people are dying in the streets
Let the flags fly on half mast
