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!

Hi Marc! Saw you in San Marcos a couple years ago & in Gruene many times, many years ago. Hope to see you again locally soon! Your music is fantastic, keep on rocking man! We love ya!

Crazy great music, Marc. I can't believe this was missing from my world for so long. We listen to the blues show sat and sun nights here in seattle and I will be pressing the dj to play your records... I must have been hearing your music all these years without knowing it was you. The test of great music is that when you hear it you think you have always heard it.

Hi Marc, I'm going through my vinyl collection and while I'm listening to the 'Lost in Austin' album the second time in a row I thought I'd look you up on the net and drop you a line. Still great music, still like it a lot. Thx and greets from Coburg Hubert
