Competition

This song was originally written in 1974 and performed at a number of locations by myself as a solo artist and with my duo at the time, "Sunrise". It was also my first composition to be covered by other performers. My old friend Joe Donohoe who influenced me to play Guitar after seeing how popular it made him, sang the song at many places he performed, also my partner in the Sunrise Duo, Roger Beasley did the tune at many of the places where he played solo. Fast-forward to 2011, I decided to record the song for the "DeClawed" album. I tweaked the lyrics a little, added some new lines and recorded the vocals, then California Producer Marc Steinberg wanted to add some of his magic to the tune. Many have said the song is the best track on The DeClawed Album.
