I would like to take this opportunity to wish Lobo a very happy birthday from Holland! Ever since "Boo" I have enjoyed listening to his albums. For close to 30 years I have admired his songs, both from a music & text point of view. It was a nice surprise o discover the Poneycanyon CDs (Thank you, Sam! Grand home page, by the way.) after a period of silence and I hope and trust that Lobo will continue writing and singing for many years to come.

My Favorite Lobo Album: A Simple Man

Kent, I want to wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY and thank you for your contribution to a very wonderful childhood filled with great tunes in the early 70's. You are the very first artist I purchased more than one record by ("..Dog Named Boo" and "She D idn't Do Magic")with my hard-earned allowance. These songs really have withstood the test of time and mean so very much to me. Although I know I can never meet one of my heroes, it gives me equal satisfaction to know that you are reading these words and hopefully knowing how much you have touched the world through your songs. Peace to you always, Doug

My Favorite Lobo Album: Of a Simple Man and Asian Moon

Happy Birthday Kent! I've been a big fan ever since "It Sure Took a Long Time." I collected all your
albums in the seventies, except for "Introducing Lobo" which I only managed to procure a few years
ago. I thought my collection was (reasonably) complete until I visited the web and found out about the
PonyCanyon cds. Needless to say, I had to have them, and after some calls to Malaysia and
Singapore (and some help from friends on the web), I managed to ge four of them (only missing the
instrumental). In fact, I am listening to Asian Moon (on my computer) as I type this. Ain't technology
great! It was a great pleasure to actually see and meet you a few years ago at the Zanzibar nightclub in Boston. You were very gracious in autographing my "Greatest Hits" cd (although you hated the cover photo). It's hard to describe the impact of your music on me, but I never tire listening and trying to sing along. I used to sing some of your songs as lullabyes to my daughter, and consequently, she is
probably one of your few 13 year old fans (at least in the .S.) Once again, Happy Birthday, and many
more to come. Dick Schatz (Schatzfam@aol.com)

My Favorite Lobo Album: Of A Simple Man

Dear Lobo, Hope you have a Very Happy Birthday! Your music and lyrics have meant so much to
me, have given me so much pleasure and affected my life in so many ways, that it's difficult to describe
in this short space. Probably more important, at least to me, was your persona. When I was a
sensitive, sh and introverted teenager in the 70's, I had no role model anywhere that could tell me I
was alright, that these qualities were alright. Then you came along, wearing your heart on your sleeve;
your vulnerability, shyness, and sensitivity were right out th re for the world to see. I was amazed,
captivated, and delighted. Through your music, your lyrics, your beautiful singing voice, and the cover
photo of "Of A Simple Man," you taught me that a man could be sensitive and still be a man. I began
to accept an even like myself. And strangely enough, right about then, girls began to notice me, too! A
side benefit I never expected. I'm seriously not sure that I would have made through my teenage years
without you. I can tell you for absolutely sure that you helped make my teenage years a whole lot
better! So thank you, Lobo. Thanks for the incredible music and most of all thanks for just being you.
I missed you when you backed out of the music industry for awhile after the "Cowboy Afraid of
Horses" album, but I understood, because, of course, every single eason you did that was clearly and
openly expressed on the "Cowboy" album! But I'm really glad to see you back, recording whole
albums and writing new songs. I really hope to see you in person someday. I've been wanting to write
you for years and tell you all of this stuff. Thanks to Sam I have an irresistable opportunity to do so.
And though these messages are very personal from me to you, I don't mind posting them here. After
all, we're all Lobo fans ere, and we all love you. Happy Birthday! Glenn Isaacson

Happy Birthday! I'm Sam's wife and just wanted to get my congratulations in here as well. I also
wanted to add my feelings about how much your music has impacted our lives. When we first met I
swore that he had hired someone to write songs for him beca se your songs were soooo
representative of what was going on with us. Thank you for your contributions to so many people!!!
