Michael, a young friend from Oklahoma, Jared Lekites, mentioned recently on Facebook that he's contributing a track to a Twilley Band tribute album. I'm going to point him toward today's show.

Completely enjoying this interview -- I must I tend to one of those folks who swear by Twilley's first two LPs on Shelter, and the give the test of his work the short shrift. It's just that those first two albums are so great, IMHO.

In addition, so glad to hear the late great Phil Seymour getting recognized. His first solo LP is a must-have!
