Reviews and Media
"...You'll love this pictorial trip through history."
Lee Underwood, Outside the Lines

"Congratulations! I commend you for not only
your hard work in completing the book, but also
your insight into what a wonderful community
Groveland is.  As my family perused the book
over the weekend, a plethora of stories and
memories were exchanged.  Thanks for a job well done!"
Linda Stephens Davis

gift to the people of our hometown. I'm encouraging everyone

Lookin' Back CD

 

Jack Speer has once again turned his songwriting talents into a dozen memorable songs that are inspired by his experiences growing up in Groveland and more recent adventures. This CD includes the hauntingly beautiful GOD ONLY KNOWS, which is under contract with Manna Music and reproduced here by special consideration. MUST BE FROM MARS is sure to resonate with Groveland High alumni. The song was written as Jack's emotional response to hearing the old high school would be torn down. The other songs that make up this 12-track CD are sure to bring smiles and maybe a few tears. But most of all, Jack makes LOOKIN' BACK time well spent.

To order:

Pick up at the museum for $10.  If you want it mailed, the total is $12, including shipping and handling.
