“Like a good wine; you open this and you’ll see to the bottom of the bottle.
You indulge this and it takes a hold. That’s because it’s so rare and unique. LOVE VIBES; is this true? Yes, Mr. Yes is sending out love vibes for all the creatures of the universe. This is for me and it is for you as well. Larry Yes and Nate Lumbard have done most of the work on this project which is the result of two years of circumspect recording with unlimited time. They are my good buddies and no one can say that they do so wrong. This has been fussed over. They got it to the point where they are satisfied. I am satisfied too. So;
what record gets the most repeat plays here at Woodbill Acres? LOVE VIBES. I tried sending out love vibes to all the creatures of the universe but it didn’t work. Through Larry it works. You got to indulge and it will take care of you. Rare; be ready and go.” – Michael Hurley
