My first record.

Next to my children, this was the most hopeful, exciting and gratifying moment in my life.

What started as a little acoustic record called, "Unplugged Desire" became a challenging work that calls to mind what a Gospel record by David Bowie might have sounded like in the 70s.

So many stories attached to this. My favorite being how the entire project was struck by lightening. Hint: The whip crack on the intro of "Human Love" was unintentional...
