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.

Arizona Jones' daughter's artwork

I shared a bunch of my artwork in the past.  But I guess the apples don't fall too far from the tree.  Here is a thing my seventh grade daughter drew for a class project (some report about a famous person or people).  The most amazing thing is she did it in ONE day!  Sorry for the distorted image due to the camera angle.  This is a poster in size, done in pencil.

Jethro Tull, Manchester, England, 2-05-1977 (soundboard)

There is a recording of this show PRRP054 that is around stating it is a soundboard that came from a road crew member.  Well, after comparing I would say this is not that recording.  In fact I believe this sounds far superior to that.

Ronnie Earl, 11-27-2010

This was sent to me by Laker Crazy. If you go on the chat box at Bootleg Tunz World you will run into him there. This is a very fine recording. I don't usually post audience recordings but this one is great. Laker Crazy made the covers also. Very Cool! Anyway if you like the blues Ronnie Earl is one of the best so give this one a listen. And tell laker Crazy thanks!

Ronnie Earl & The Broadcasters, 5-31-1991

I have had a lot of requests to refresh the links for Ronnie Earl shows, so I will post a few.  I stopped blogging due to lack of time keeping this stuff up.  I am going to be going at a slow pace because this blog is not a top priority in my life.

Here is what I originally wrote when I posted this back in early 2011.

Well I have had a good response to the Ronnie Earl posts, and I have really gotten into him as of late. So here is another recording of the great but often overlooked blues guitarist. This came with really not much of a set list and I put it together the best I could. If you could help with the set list, well thanks in advance.
