Absolutely love Sammy, old and new, got a listen to this album and just love him even more. "The Love" is my ultimate recent favorite. My husband and I added this song to our romantic playlist.We dance to it all the time while hanging out. We are going to see the show in Cincinnati in August. I know that "The Love" is not part of the current tour set list, but it would mean so much to us if it were played as an exception. We are so excited to see the show, but to hear "The Love" would make it so much more magical. Fellow Sammy lovers, let me hear you. Yeah or near. Would this not be a great addition to the set list?

Hello. I don't know if Sammy himself or his son Arron will read this. But I listened to the track (Who has the right). I thought wow. Would this make a great Anthem to people who feel the same way. Maybe make a differance if it was heard more?! How about getting together a bunch of people in the music industry to sing it together and make the world hear what it has to say? It might make a differance?! hats off guys! nice job! Peace and happy holidays everyone!!

Love the tracks and the acoustic arrangements on this "Lite Roast" and the perfect name. It was great seeing you in Vegas. When will you be in San Bernardino next. I want my grandson's first concert to be your.

Sammy, thank you. I really appreciate the way you take care of your fans. We love you and your family.

And in the end, on Sammy we do depend, cause that's what rock n' roll is made of...

Sure was hoping for an option for an autographed copy either in the store, or maybe a drawing or something, but I guess it's not to be...
