"Harvest For The World", originally written and recorded by The Isley Brothers, has been a lifelong favorite for both Andy and producer Michael Carey. The lyrics dealing with social equality, dignity, veterans issues and making a better world for our children are as relevant today as when first written.
The track features a dream team of musicians including Bobby Watson on bass (Rufus, Michael Jackson), Tony Patler on keys (Chaka Khan) and M.B
. Gordy on percussion (The Doobie Brothers).
The video was directed and edited by Barry McGuire who's credits include Dr. Dre, Lady Gaga, Reeve Carney, Akon and OK GO among others.
