Even the classy hats can't hide that I-just-escaped-from-prison look.

(as if you couldn't guess by now).

I'm keeping my eye out for other bits and pieces left behind by the band. let me know via e-mail.

A Metropolitan Opry CD?

I have a live recording of a Metropolitan Opry performance in New York on April 5, 1990. Thirteen tunes got recorded (a little over 54 minutes total) and there's even a dramatic reading by Marty Laster, probably the only one ever recorded (at least we hope so).
If you would be interested in getting a CD copy of that performance, send me e-mail and ask about "Metropolitan Opry -- Live at the Cornelia Street Cafe" CAT-107CD.
