    South Pacific Cast Recording || "This is my last chance to rectify a mistake I made decades ago. As our song for our first dance at our wedding I should have insistend that the band play "Younger Than Springtime". It is how I thought of Nancy then and how I think of her now." Richmond

    Marvin Gaye || "Although written in 1971, its description has become ever more true. It moved me powerfully when I first heard it and in many ways I consider it my theme song.

I thank them for their comradeship in this work." - Richmond
