Next, Next CD, studio work

This week we go back in the studio to work on a song that 1st. appeared in Broadside magazine back in the early 1970’s thanks to Pete Seeger. As I remember we were having breakfast and I sang it to Toshi and Pete while we were eating. No, that’s not right, I think they were still in bed and I was in the living room singing very softly. Pete came out and asked me who wrote the song. He wrote the music down and sent it to Sis Cunningham of Broadside. The song Wounded Knee I wrote after reading Dee Brown’s Book called Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. So we are laying those and more tracks, more songs for the next, next CD, 9 so far.

Well after all this time our 8 page booklet with words that you can really read is now done. We can now go on to the rest of the design and we are getting close folks.
