“Actually, the reason it took me so long to do a solo project is that nobody asked me to do one before. But when Elektra Records asked me if I wanted to do an album, I said yes. And then I kind of went crazy because I had never tried to write songs before.” — Chicago Tribune, December 30, 1986

“I’ve probably been through more relationships than most people that I know. You have to keep in there, pitching (to keep romance alive). The grass always looks greener on the other side of the fence, but if you really care about somebody and make a commitment, you give it the best shot you can. It’s a shot in the dark, but I’m taking it.” — Chicago Tribune, December 30, 1986

About Candy-O: “I can’t imagine anyone else doing an album like that and pulling it off the way we did, any more than I can imagine anybody else doing a Beatles album, say. It’s a lot cleaner than the first one and we spent a lot more time working on sound and the clarity of instruments. But it’s still a natural kind of flowing thing; there’s a lot of feeling from every individual involved. Ric and I have been singing pretty well for some time now, but this time out we had the luxury of really getting it down on tape. The blend of our voices is perfect.”  –Candy-O press kit booklet, 1979
