Music This Week June 17th thru June 23rd

Hey there,
I am finally getting caught up enough to start posting some of the incredible music I recorded. One of my favorites is Dot Line Projekt > Copious Jones *Posted as a single piece as there was a flawless transition from one band to the other accomplished by swapping individual players.
I also went back into my archives and posted several of Carl Lindberg’s early shows. These shows were in the Old Music Archive where I posted as downloads before I figured out how to post as streaming. It was originally set up so bands could download the raw files and edit and post themselves.That didn’t work out so well as they found out how much work is involved in the editing and posting.My hope is someday I’ll have the time to migrate all of those files to the Play Music streaming archive. Anyone who would like to help is greatly appreciated. Check out Carl Lindberg and Rob McMaken on 8-26-11 and 3-23-12.
Also an Old Skool Trio 9-1-11.
