“Don’t Want To Lose”

This song has also been posted elsewhere on the site… several versions, in fact. We have the studio version which what this is taken from the “Sailing On Fantasies” album. We have an outtake version which is not that much different from the final. And we  also have a live version which was recorded at the Ranch & Co. in Port Byron on June 10th or 11th of 1978.

The lineup for the song was Jon, Ken, Paul and me, same as the personnel in the 1978 photo. On the album I also played synthesizer. We all did the hand claps. Bob Parker wrote and arranged the strings and horns which really spice up the song!
