Hey Jay,

I don't know how to pm here so I'll just write to you in this thread hoping you'll see this.  I came into possession of Bradm’s prodigious stack of live recordings, a pile that includes 800+ master discs and I'm trying to return them to the artists.  Among this pile is a couple of Diesel Dog shows.  Would you like them?  Otherwise, with your permission I’ll pass them on to a local music fan.  (I also have a couple of shows by High Plains Drifter)

If you want them, email me at tsnelgrove at rogers dot calm and we'll figure it out.

Keep on rockin’ in the free world,

I'd be interested in any recordings of House of David Gang, High Plains Drifter, Aaron MacDonald Band ... 


I could help pass along Diesel Dog recordings.

I believe BradM recorded Fertile Ground, The Slip, JSB, GTB shows that I was a part of.... although I think many of those are up on etree. 


Definitely open to getting some of those recordings, thanks for thinking of me .  I'll send you this as an email now.
