Bower, The (mislabeled on MRaf as Garrett Barry's, where it was furthermore mistakenly co-credited to Becky Deryckx, who explained in an e-mail to me 24 January 2013: "I am not a co-composer of that tune; it was written solely by Paul Wells, and was simply dedicated to me (as a birthday present) because both Paul and I had taken a memorable week of classes with Mike Rafferty earlier that year.") (composed by Paul Wells)
