Other Credits and Acknowledgments:

Special thanks to Susan Hulsman Bingham for her vision and follow-through in bringing Micki's music to a wider audience. Sue also played all the piano accompaniment for these recordings and sang the backup vocals on track 14.

Tracks 1-14 were originally recorded in 1989 for On the Breath of Dawn. On this album, George Raccio played the guitar accompaniment.

Tracks 15-24 were originally recorded in 1990 for Filling Up and Spilling Over. On this album, Jim Martin played the guitar accompaniment.

Both albums were recorded at Grace Recording Studio, Hamden, Connecticut.
How to Request a CD:

If you would like a copy, please send your name and address to:

Jody Esselstyn
2503 Hillwood Pl
Charlottesville VA 22901-2922
If you are able, we would appreciate a check (also made out to Jody) for $10 (US) to help us cover the costs of pressing, printing, assembling, and mailing. As I write this, I think we have about 40 CDs, so if we get more than 40 requests, there may be a slight delay in sending some of them out.

Two of the songs, On Eagle's Wings and Blessing (track 14) are available in mp3 format. Two caveats:
1. The files are big, about 3.5 MB and 1.5 MB respectively, and hence may take a long time to load.
2. Newer systems should be able to open mp3 files easily using a program like QuickTime or Windows Media Player, but if you have an older system or are not familiar with audio files, you may have some difficulty.
That said, if you want to give it a try, here they are:
[On Eagle's Wings] and [Blessing]
