Musician Billy Henry from Wales, is now collaborating with John. John writes, performs, and records his new melody and parts layered with Billy's original tracks. What a combo of talents!

Here are a few finished ones for an upcoming EP collection.

Wow. More sixties than the sixties! The music and words go well with the video. Just in time too. Acid is back with doctors touting its therapeutic qualities.
