Al Stewart, Peter Case, Paul Collins, Chris Thompson (Manfred Mann), Bill Berry, Don Dixon & more sing the final compositions of John Wicks. In addition, you’ll hear brilliant instrumental contributions from Dave Nachmanoff, Elliot Easton (The Cars, Andy Qunta (Icehouse, Factory) and others.

Known for his work with/as The Records, John was about to record the vocal tracks for this latest batch of songs before his untimely passing in late 2018. In his stead, a few good friends (and some heavy hitters in the music business) got together to see that his final work was completed. It's a very personal goodbye and a testament to how much John was loved and appreciated by his peers.
