A Letter to My Love (re-issue)


No Video


Like so many people, I first came to know Paul Reid as a gentle voice in the night. Tuning around my radio dial I stumbled across his show and stayed to listen. And like so many others, I found myself turning back in again and again to hear the special magic that was Paul Reid

I never dreamed then, that one day Paul and I would work together. I never dreamed that one day we would be friends. I never knew how much Paul’s passing would mean to me and everyone who ever knew him.

There is far too little space here to say everything that should be said about Paul, and for me to even attempt to do that would not be fair.

There are others who knew him longer. There are others who knew him better. It is enough for me to say that Paul was a friend, and if you have experienced one very special friendship, then you know that nothing else needs to be said.

This album is a special edition of Paul’s first recording for Columbia records and contains all of the original material from that album. For those of you who have been looking for that very unique record, here it is. For those of you who have been afraid that your Columbia Records copy would soon wear out. now you need not fear. And for those of you who have never heard this record... you are in for a very special treat.

You will hear not only a voice that was loved, but the voice of a man who was loved.

And Paul’s gift to all who knew him was the love he put in his voice.

Love of the words he read.

Love of the audience that listened.

So, Paul Reid’s A Letter To My Love is really a letter to you.
