Attention, Galleonmaniacs: During the virus crisis I have tried to stay productive musically. With the help of my friend Reverend Pat I have made a recording and video of a labor of love on my part. I have taken snippets from several compositions by my late colleague and one-time friend Lisa Ann (L.A.) Russell, spliced them together with additional parts of my own, and made a brand-new song which I believe is really worth hearing. The song is called "LOST LOVE'S L.A.MENT," and it is available as an audio recording here. It is also available as a video on YouTube by searching and selecting the title "Galleon performing Lost Loves Lament". I hope you enjoy this tribute to my old friend Miss Russell. Happy listening, and rest in peace, L.A. Without your inspiration and perseverance this song could not exist.

Stay inside, stay safe, and rock on, my friends,
Elliott Michaels for GALLEON!

Song written by Lisa Ann Russell and Elliott C. Michaels. Song performed by Galleon leader Elliott Michaels. Video produced and directed by Reverend Pat D.

This is simply about someone pining away at his/her lost love, expressed as only L.A. Russell could, but amalgamated and improved as only Elliott Michaels could.
