Letters From David
February 27, 2001
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of my fans for their support and patience waiting for the CDs Buddha apparently promised to release. I know that some of you are disappointed about their change of heart, but please understand that this was not my decision. I would like to let you know I didn't stop the release, and it appears that my contractual dispute with Arista has affected Buddha's decision to not release these CDs. Those recordings mean very much to me, and I hope they still mean that much to you. I want them and myself to be treated with the utmost care and respect, regardless of any contractual disputes. As Buddha has never contacted me, the artist, I have no way of knowing what they had, or had not, intended to do in the future.
Now, the good news is that I am getting ready to record again, and you can expect that a CD with some new and old songs will be released in the not too distant future. I'll let you know first! In the meantime, I hope to see you at some of my concerts. I've seen the requests you've asked for from the web site, and my song list reflects some of those choices you've made. I'll be all over the country for the next year. The dates are here on the web site and will be updated as new shows are added.
Again, I love you for all of your support and hope you know how much it has meant to me in the past, and how much I need you now more than ever.
