In Their Words:Phases and Stages is one of my all-time favorite albums that my dad recorded. There’s not a song on it that I couldn’t listen to over and over and never get tired of hearing. However, ‘Pretend I Never Happened’ has always been my favorite. Everything about the song including the melody, the lyrics and the way the song was originally put together make me feel when I listen is not only timeless but downright perfection. With all that said, I hope that I was able to make my dad proud of this cover of his song. I know that I am so very proud of how it turned out. And to have him playing and singing on this recording made this song even more special to me. There’s no one else other than my dad and his band that I would have trusted to re-record it other than Bruce Robison and the amazing band he put together for this project.” — Paula Nelson
