some people put em out like stale biscuits. this was my very first finished recording. it is as good as i can do after more than 40 yrs. (50+ now) of string slingin mayhem. where did the pipe go?
kicking D Around is an instrumental that will get "yer toes tapping" or whatever it is that excites your molecules. everyone of you; young/old, neither race, sex nor obstatacle (except deafness) excluded.
credit for both drum tracks of where did the pipe go and kicking D around plus the invaluable technical advice that got these recordings underway is due with much gratitude to Bob Korver and the presence of his sidekick bobby jr.

lucky13 is my first copyrighted demo recording; representing my lifes work, the source of some of these songs go back a long ways. im pleased to say that finishing it first was not practical or possible . .... still incomplete with drum machine tracks and frayed ends; a gem in the rough. but i did it 13 years ago.
to note: a very special event took place doing this record. double tracking guitar parts! it changed everything. a whole new dimension opened up for me. i was the kid in the candy shop. i cannot reproduce these songs live. there are a couple things i may not even be able to play again! it IS the kernel of evolution! you will find different versions of -where did the pipe go, kicking D around and dont tell nobody. empty room tells a story. empty room was a turning point in my music and sources back to the early 90s. if not for that song i might as well have tossed it in. drinkin whiskey and red dress are the oldest, tracing roots to the early seventies. stump blues is / was latest.continue on bandpictures with pics of friends and local musicians who have joined in a time or two, some fun times or you can jump back to muddys.
