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.

Good Bye Gregg. . . Thanks

Well another great musical influence of my life has passed away.  Gregg Allman.  I first really got into the Allman Brothers when my sister turned me on to Eat A Peach over the holidays in December of 1973.  I was hooked.  And through the music came that soulful voice of Gregg.  From then on Gregg was a part of the soundtrack of my life and his songs remind me of many of the times I have spent.  His songs like Mellissa, Dreams, Ain't Wastin Time No More, and Midnight Rider are all forever entwined into the memories of my life.  And the soulful sound of his voice that could express such feeling.  Gregg was one of the greats, and there are very few of them left.  Thanks Gregg, I hope your music lives on.  And Gregg "I Ain't Waistin Time No More", thanks for the advice. 
Last Sunday morning, the sunshine felt like rain
The week before, they all seemed the same
With the help of God and true friends, I've come to realize
I still have two strong legs, and even wings to fly
So I, ain't a-wastin time no more
'Cause time goes by like hurricanes, and faster things
Well, Lord, Lord, Miss Sally, why all your cryin'?
Been around here three long days, lookin' like we're dyin'
Go step yourself outside, and look up at the stars above
And go on downtown, baby, find somebody to love
Meanwhile, I ain't a-wastin' time no more
'Cause time goes by like pouring rain, and much faster things
You don't need no gypsy to tell you why
Ya can't let one precious day to slip by
Well, look inside yourself, and if you don't see what you want
Maybe sometimes then ya don't
But, leave your mind alone and just get high
Well, by and by, way after many years have gone
And all the war freaks die off, leavin' us alone
We'll raise our children, in the peaceful way we can
It's up to you and me brother
To try and try again
So, hear us now, we ain't wastin' time no more
'Cause time rolls by like hurricanes
Runnin' after the subway train
Don't forget the pourin' rain

Here is one of the first concerts I posted on this blog way back when I first started.  It is a great example of The Allman Brothers, from that time period.  Hard to believe they lasted so long.  Truly one of the greatest rock bands of all time.

A very nice matrix recording of The Tedeshi Trucks Band.  Since there are not a lot of FM or soundboard recordings of this band this matrix recording is one of the better recordings you will find outside of official releases.  This band is probably my favorite live act that is out there touring today.  Check it out!

Jerry Douglas and the Earls of Leicester, Cumberland, MD, 5-27-2016, (Matrix: FM and Aud)

This is a pretty nice sounding recording of Jerry Douglas and his new band the Earls of Leicester.  The name Earls of Leicester is a take on Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, and the band project is a tribute to them.  This is essentially a shout out to Flatt and Scruggs and the influence that they had on Jerry Douglas and bluegrass in general.

My Cousin Bill

My Cousin Bill. Bill knew how to enjoy life and in doing it he brought some of that joy with him to others. Bill still had some of that little kid in him and that made him fun to be around. There really was just not enough of Bill to go around, he could not be everywhere at the same time. The times I did get to spend with Bill I will always cherish. The backpack trip to the Sierra Nevadas, The Mountain Bike trip to Utah. I was lucky to have him all to myself on those trips and what a fun time. Life is too short, and it goes by fast. We can all learn something from Bill. He lived life with a sense of humor and with joy and kindness and life is too short to live it any other way. The world is a little less kind, and a little less joyful without Bill in it. I can choose now to let his loss drag me down or to remember him and celebrate him by bringing joy and humor to others I meet in honor of him. I'm so glad I was able to share some of his special time. Thanks Bill for blessing me.
