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.

  1. Amazing player - this is the best one yet ! Thank you !

  2. "One More Vassar" indeed, a kindness beyond measure. Thanks so much. Now you can move on in peace.


  3. Hello Arizona! Do you have anything of the Hillbilly Funk All-Stars, with Richie and Kenny from Little Feat, Vassar Clements, T Lavitz and Catfish Hodge?

  4. Barleyman. Nope, sorry. Sounds interesting.

  5. It's possible your source may be from me, I taped this show from the soundboard. I just stumbled upon this in my cd rack and didn't have the set list, I happened upon your page by doing a setlist search. It was a fabulous show.
