John Mellencamp "Save Some Time to Dream" (stereo)

Stereo mix the song from the album "No Better Than This." The album which was released in mono and stereo. Produced by T Bone Burnett, it was recorded in some historic locations (Atlanta, Memphis, Dallas) all with mid-1950s equipment.

John Mellencamp (solo live) "Save Some Time to Dream"

Mellencamp was awarded Lifetime Achievement award in Nashville in September, 2010 by the Americana Music Association. He was introduced by Roseanne Cash. This recording is not for sale, and you get to hear it just because I was feeling oh so generous. Hope you have some time to dream, and time to listen to it!
The song is from JM's "No Better Than This" album, produced by T Bone Burnett, who has been producing a lot of artists, lately... most recently Gregg Allman.

DAN REEDER "Bitch Nation"

Reeder's recordings are out there, thanks to John Prine who liked his songs that Dan gave him on a homemade cassette, and released him on his Oh Boy Records. This is from the CD "This New Century," released in January, 2010. Dan has coninued to write and record in his own "man cave." This album is a bit more refined than his first, but I recommend his others, too.

Reading Light Bright

Another technical breakthrough (realized I had phantom power for mics on in two places) fixed that, did midi bass and some double-tracking. With apologies to Jerry Jeff Walker, and the composer (can't remember his name). geezer rob
