Prologue

Peace and welcome to “The Best Part”. What you are experiencing right now is the first official pressing and release of a body of work that is long long overdue. This album has been built, robbed, destroyed, rebuilt, held up, postponed, cancelled, shelved, bootlegged, analyzed, exploited, slept on, supported, patiently awaited, and appreciated, long before you got your hands on this slim neat little package.

This collection of thoughts, songs and relationships has literally been on the verge of completion since 1997. It was intended to finally be released in 1999. Most of the songs were written between 1995 and 1998. However, from the first to last verse, it reaches as far back as 1988 and stretches forward up to 2001. Throughout this tedious, relatively arduous process, the people involved in this project have
successfully delivered the intended message that was conceived, forged, and
galvanized through its delivery. The understanding is the best part.
Enjoy!
