*I first met Jon Butcher at WBCN in Boston in 1975, when he was a member of 
Johanna Wilde (you were a foot taller, Jon).
 Our careers, lives and friendship have traveled across the country, evolving thru the decades and we now find ourselves in New England happily immersed in what we love - back at the beginning - almost!

 See Jon live when he plays your local music hall and check out the new EP 
360.


**I added the lone McPhee lp (1971) to the archives and featured 
their cover of Richie P. Havens' Indian Rope Man.

The original single was included on the great 1983 lp (1969) - a stone-cold groove!

*Composer Monty Norman was selected by producer Albert R. Broccoli and traveled to Jamaica on January 14, 1962. He met Chris Blackwell, (later of Island Records fame) a then location scout and production assistant recommended to the producers by Ian Fleming. Blackwell introduced Norman to Byron Lee and the Dragonaires. Lee and his band including guitarist Ernest Ranglin recorded the Jamaican parts of the score in Kingston's Federal Studios, with Norman himself and his then wife Diana Coupland providing occasional vocals. Byron Lee and the Dragonaires actually appear in Dr. No performing "Jump Up". The song "Under the Mango Tree" was performed by Ranglin on guitar and was featured in both the film and on the Dr. No soundtrack album.

Past the girls in the office"

Entitled Is There Anybody Out There?, it was a rhetorical question of which I knew the answer - but had no idea of how to find you! Fast forward to the same date in 2018 (tonight), not only did we connect - we now have close to 600,000 of us, all as unique as you! Thank you for being a part of this mind-blowing meeting of amazing musical minds from across the globe and right down your street! It is my honor and pleasure to have your ears and look forward to Lucky Year 13 ahead!
