I was living with friends in northern California about 50 miles from the Bay area. I was 21. We would listen KSAN out of San Francisco on the stereo radio. In those days some FM stations would play album cuts all the time. And so they would play 'Baby I Love You' a lot. I loved that song and bought the album which is and probably will always be my all time favorite album. I have all of Marc's albums (except the new one) . He's my favorite artist. I'll be coming to Texas some time to see him play.

Very cold evening in Germany. Searching my record collection and stick once more to one of my favourites "Lost in Austin". Still enjoying it like in 1979. What a great record. Thanks Marc

I just discovered your song "Speak Your Mind." I love it. Thank you. It rules. Hope you're well.

I've been a big fan of Marc's since wearing out my dad's Lost in Austin tape when I was about 8. I still listen to it on the regular. Snake Charmer too. Both timeless records. Last week I was watching JJ Cale's documentary on youtube, and Mr. Cale mentioned he sold you his Les Paul at some point. I thought that was very cool. I saw you at the guitar show in Dallas a few years back, playing to a very small crowd. I doubt the people that weren't watching you had any idea of the greatness they were missing out on. You're a sho nuff Texas treasure. Love you man and hope you are well.

Dear Marc: Hello and hope you're doing fine. Last week on a local radio station I heard your song "Speak Your Mind". Beautiful song. Love that you played on "LA Woman" as well. Have a great day! Cheers, Otto

My favorite all time album was Asylum Choir II. It never came off of my turntable.

Is there any way to get the sheet music?
Vic Brown from Clinton wrote on January 22, 2019
For over 45 years I have sung “I always called them mountains” to my wife. It is one of the most beautiful love songs ever written and so rarely recorded. Thanks for writing it.

I was 18, it was freshman year and I was at Elmira College in Elmira, NY, a small undistinguiished liberal arts college in upstate New York. I was on the radio station and had access to records, a small advantage back then... but it gave me the chance to hear stuff no one else could. Tommy and Workingman's Dead prevailed. I was a bit of a fan of The Asylum Choir, loved Leon, whose first album had just come out and there was a Marc Benno record sitting there at the station. I fell in love with "Second Story Window" and simultaneously with a girl named Sharon Imade her come up to my room and listen to this great song on my shitty stereo. "... and you know who your friends are, by looking in their eyes..." I was so in love. At the end of the year I never saw her again. She was so beautiful and I was so in love. She sent me a postcard I still have. I'm happily married now and really since, and it all turned out well for me. Not for her. She didn't last long, committed suicide in about 1980 and, well, I think of her from time to time. You're in there, too. Glad you made it. I just listened to that song for maybe the first time in 40 years. It all comes back. The single most romantic thing: we were walking down the street and she asked if I'd like a piece of gum. Sure, I said, and she bit off half of hers and gave it to me. Hope things worked out well for you. Robbie

Hi Marc, I finally know your name. You were always the "other" guy on the LA Woman Album to me. Listen to Jim and the boys daily and that includes you. Love "been down so long". Great tune and you are just darling in the video. Cute as you can be and talented too. What a catch!
