A special thank you to Gene Merlino for his help with the chorus. I would also like to thank D'Aldo Romano, Mario Ruiz and Melody Penagos of CBS Records International for helping me with this project.

Original LP liner notes:

Nunca sé qué decir cuando CBS me pide que haga una dedicatoria en mis álbumes. Lo único que se me ocurre es agradecerles su patrocinio, a ustedes mi público, que han comprado mis discos y escuchado mi música a lo largo de los últimos 30 años.
La música nos ha brindado a mi familia y a mí, una rida confortable llena de satisfacciones y todo ello gracias a ustedes.
Vayan con Dios siempre,

Ray Conniff

English translation for the Columbia House release:

I never know what to say when CBS asks me to write an acknowledgement on the back cover of one of my albums; however, I welcome the opportunity to thank you, my friends, for your loyalty and support throughout these 30 years.
Music has enriched my life in various ways; one of them is that it has allowed me and my family to lead a very full and rich life. You have made it possible, and for this I once again thank you.
May God Bless You,

Ray Conniff
