Clipping from years gone by

David Littlefield recently brought a scrapbook to Joseph during their Littlefield&Morneault rehearsal and showed Jos this article dating to early 1983 (photo taken late in 1982)… David giving Cliff a plaque for at that time 10 years of playing steadily at the Griswold Inn. The Clockwinder is Cliff’s first solo album, so it being referred to as his third is taking into consideration other albums wherein Cliff’s contribution is prevalent but not as a solo album.
