All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

Sea level, 2-02-1977

If you don't know Sea Level it was formed by Chuck Leavell, Lamar Williams and Jaimoe all who were playing with the Allman Brothers. The Allman Brothers were going through a break up of sorts in 1976 and these guys formed this somewhat of a fusion band playing combinations of rock, jazz, and blues. The name Sea Level comes from a play on the band leaders Chuck Leavell's name (C. Leavell). The picture is just from my old vinyl album cover from back in the day.

Sea Level
Ivanhoe Theater
Chicago, IL

Tidal Wave
Rain in Spain
Scarborough Fair
Hot 'Lanta
Patriotic Flag Waver
Grand Larceny
Statesboro Blues
Midnight Pass
I'm Ready

This is a guess on the players from a lineup they had in 1978. But this could have George Weaver on drums and Jaimoe because they play on the 1977 album Cats On The Coast and I'm assuming that Causey and Bramblett are in the band by this time.

Chuck Leavell: Keyboards
Jimmy Nalls: Guitar
Davis Causey: Guitar
Randall Bramblett: keyboards, sax, percussion
Lamar Williams: bass
Joe English: drums
