As you can imagine, we are pleased to be back home, following nearly three months of travel and some excellent shows and new friends. This is exactly what sustains us out there – that and the geographic, geologic, and culture-ific wonder that is America.
First of all, thanks to everyone who participated in our free download of “Blackwater Music”. Today is the final day, so get with it if you haven’t already! Because we are approaching December and our thoughts are turning to gifting our friends and relations, Spencer is offering a special for December only. When you buy any 2 CDs of your choice from his website, we will add a FREE CD of Spencer’s roots-rock classic PRESENT TENSE!!! Recorded in 1995, PRESENT TENSE features 10 Spencer Bohren originals with Reggie Scanlan and Frank Bua of the now-legendary New Orleans Radiators in the rhythm section and the inimitable Bengt Blomgren from Sweden on electric guitar. So share some music with this gift from Spencer to you.
There are, of course, a couple of New Orleans shows this month . . .
