Includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
All album sales proceeds go directly to Team Mike (the Jensens) to help cover medical costs. Please consider giving more than the album price! Also includes a bonus PDF insert with lots of pictures, liner notes, front cover and track listing.
Dripping in nostalgia on several levels, this album is years in the making and celebrates the wonderful music and friendship of Mike Jensen, to whom it is dedicated. “Everybody Love Everybody” is Mike’s motto for life, and thus a fitting title for this collection of songs as well as a timely reminder of how different our world would be if everyone could just follow it. All proceeds will be directed to Jenny Leigh and the rest of the Jensens to help with the medical bills and other expenses brought on by Mike’s illness. Please encourage your friends and family to buy this album and contribute to Team Mike. We love you forever, Sparzo!!
