What Stephen Says:

This collection of forty-one songs represents my first thirty years as a professional songwriter, from my first song for a Broadway show, the title song from the play Butterflies Are Free, written in 1969, to a song from the original television musical Geppetto, which aired in 2000.

I have tried to include the majority of my most often performed songs as well as many frequently requested songs that do not appear in any other published folio. I have rewritten many of the accompaniments of previously published songs to reflect more accurately the way I actually play them on the piano, and a few of the songs contain lyrics that have been revised (and I think improved) since their original publication.

I have tried to tailor the songs with a solo singer in mind; accordingly, songs that were originally duets or choral numbers are arranged for a soloist, and longer instrumental breaks have been shortened.
