Hello, thanks for being patient. Now that the summer is over I'll be back in the studio next week with Steve Hamilton at Sausage Studios. Steve mixed "Live at the Big Bull" which just won another "Best Live CD of the Year" award from Blues Blast Magazine. The first came from the Independent Blues Scene in June. Here's a link to the dropbox file with two tunes. The first is Handyman from my first CD "Slow Burn" and the second is "You Didn't Even Say Goodbye" with Big Al on sax. Give them a listen and play armchair producer. Thanks.
