THE BACK DOOR, FROM TOMMY MAKEM AND FRIENDS, PBS TV SPECIAL
From the Tommy Makem PBS special, Tommy Makem and Friends in Concert WMHT/PBS 1992. I wrote this song in the early 90s and performed it as a member of Cherish the Ladies. Happily the big hair and shoulder pads are gone! Sadly, the plight of the undocumented immigrant in the US holds more true today.
Tommy Makem was a true legend. I am grateful to him for all he did for my music while I was a member of Cherish the Ladies and when beginning my solo career. He gave me the start.
