Self production wise, I have just finished and will release my first Solo effort CD called “Songs in Transition”. It’s a group of old and new songs that have transitioned to what they are today. Good riding music. All with a little help from my friends. Look for it after May 30th, 2008! Thanks and hope to see you around!
