Robert Leslie Dean - "On July 29th '82 Bryan
came over to my apartment and recorded twelve
'old' songs in my bedroom/studio (four... "If
You Believe In," "Claudia," "She
Looks Good" and "Friday's Party"
are on ifyoubelievein) using my TEAC 3340S reel-to-reel
tape deck and two Shure SM58 mics ... And I got
to witness and engineer this incerdible event!
...Among the other tunes recorded were "Love
Will Be Here," "Special Joy," "Castle
Waltz," "Always I Wanted To Be"
and "Claudine's Samba" ... nothing ever
became of the tapes until now ... Bryan wrote
and recorded many other beautiful songs before
and after this session (with and without me) that
have yet to be heard (primarily his powerful 'worship'
music) ... and when they are finally heard by
fans of Bryan, LOVE and lovers of timeless, classic
word and melody, there will be no doubt that his
talent equaled and sometimes surpassed that of
his more recognized peers in the Byrds, Springfield,
