"On his tour across Germany, Ray Pasnen also visits the Enchilada in Minden.
He again shows his great musical talent to a large audience. Those who
missed this fabulous highlight must not worry because Ray returns for one

well. That might have been partly due to the live entertainment. Swizzle's
occasionally shot-shooting, and always guitar-strumming Ray Pasnen ("the
funniest, most entertaining musician in Bermuda") took requests from the
crowd and generally kept all in very high spirits... ...by the end of the
night, like everybody else, we were foot-tapping and mouthing the lyrics

invitation to come to Germany after being accidentally discovered by a good
friend of the Trend Journal. "Live in Bermuda" shows the artist
as a brilliant interpreter of selected singer/songwriter titles and classics
from 30 years of rock music in front of an enthusiastic audience. Ray

called "Human Race." WHMX received an advanced copy of the album

tremendous. Within two days, Am I Losing You became one of our most
requested songs. Each year (Hot Mix 106) compiles a "Top 106 of the
year" countdown...based entirely on listener requests received during the
previous year. Ray Pasnen's song "Am I Losing You" appeared at
number 14 (sandwiched between Eric Clapton's "Tears In Heaven" and
Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You".) Considering that
our listeners only had six weeks to vote for the song, this is an amazing
