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.

Calexico, Darmstadt, Germany, 7-06-1999

This is a real nice recording of the Tucson Arizona based band Calexico. This is an early recording from the time period of the album called The Black Light. I love this band and it's feel. It has a real Sonora Desert feel to it, just like the border areas it borrows from two cultures. I made the cover using some art from Calexico's web site and then just added a little. The recording is a great soundboard.

  1. I agree 100% great band. Thanks for sharing it's really appreciated.Also enjoy your photos.


  2. Any chance of reposting this one? - link is dead, and I can't find it anywhere else.

  3. Yea, but it might take a while. I stopped posting on my blog because it took over my life, and all my links were deleted TWICE. I will not let this blog take up too much of my family time. So I will get to it when I get to it. I have about 20 other requests at this time ;-)

  4. Would you like to re-up?
    Thanx from Germany
