Fila thanks for visiting my stage and for the positive comments. I've been compared to Philippe Wayne of the Spinners in the past, but that brother was awesome, and I needed much work to be in his class. Thanks for putting me there. Jo' KingJr
Hi Fila, Thought I'd better get over here and see what you had up. Your latest tune, (the front porch) is very cool and raw. Very nice. Bet it would sound really good with all the rest of the instruments playing too. Bass, drums, etc. Maybe I'll give it a try if that is ok?Randall Miller
