Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)

Pictures #0001-1495


This one you may or may not be interested in picking up- it’s tapes from the “Save Your Prayers” sessions remixed and with added tidbits that Waysted released back in 1986.  “Wilderness of Mirrors- the Save Your Prayers Sessions” features Pete Way (bass).  Joining him are fellow UFO alum, Paul Chapman (guitars), John DiTeodoro (drums and percussion), and Danny Vaughn (vocals).  The reason for this effort could be contractual obligations were in order and thus the veteran bassist delivered this to free himself.  We just don’t know.  However, as completists, everyone should seek this one out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

I began my culinary career at age 10 working under my father, Chef Fritz, Sr., at his German restaurant in southern California. I moved to Bakersfield in 1982, went to work at one of the hotels, and remained there for the next 24 years prior to retiring. Now, I spend my time writing culinary articles for various magazines enjoying the good life. I’ve dedicated my entire lifetime to promoting the food service industry and in educating the young folks. Up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, Simone, created the following portrayals that you will see here and at the secondary blog over the course of the week. We have gone from ancient photos to facsimiles now due to the craziness infecting the greater society around us so you can say it is for security reasons. I have spent my entire life working in professional food service and am proud of that service. I currently work and live in the South Land.
