I agree as the Caddo Comanche did say: Tejas - a place of friends or a gathering of friends, that is one reason I live within the Borders of the Texian Republic, with NAM (Native Aligned Nations) to the North and by 1876 Arkansas and Louisiana form a New Free Trade Republic of Louiskensas, who controls the Mississippi River from the Sothern border of state of Missouri to the Gulf of Mexico. Then to the West of the Texian Republic we find the Santa Fe Republic of New Mexico that the Texian Republic helped get its Freedom from the Republic of Mexico, and their Foreign Empire Power grab. Yes, we within the Texian Republic are Tejas, but we also tend to get really involved in others Countries business. Doc Zepp
Thanks, D. I am the executive producer for The Kyle Wood Project: OTR. :)
And I am in the opposite situation from you: I have hundreds of great records - many of them "collectible" - but no working turntable to play them on at present. Luckily most of them are available digitally.
Since you are clearly a mando fan, check out the eclectic mandolin music of Kyle Wood on iTunes - The Kyle Wood Project: Off The Rails The songs here range from hard rock to alt. country to singer-songwriter to blues. For many years, Kyle was the mandolinist and co-lead vocalist with Nashville-based newgrass band Crucial Smith.
Yes, Tuxedo Cat & I really like Dawg (David Grissman) music, too. I had the pleasure of seeing the original David Grissman Quintet lineup play all the songs from their first, ground-breaking album at Floydfest (Floyd VA) in 2002. Awesome.
