Mike, thank you! It means a lot, especially coming from you. I play Moon On The Water almost every time that I pick up my guitar, so it is very special to me. I truly appreciate your kind words. Your mother's music has genuinely changed my life. It's clear from all of the other posts that I'm not the only one.
About the lute, I'm curious... Do you have any idea who made it and how your mother obtained it? They aren't easy to come by today, and I don't imagine they were common in the 60s either! I also found it interesting that, in the photo on the back of the album, the lute appears to have the little fret marker "dots," while most other lutes seem to lack them. It's amazing and wonderful that you still have her lute.
