I just reviewed one of your tunes. I remember the dueling leads from the Lou Reed live album quite well. That was stellar work.

No surprise for your recognition!!!
Your solo from the Lou Reed Brooklyn Acad. performance is the benchmark for me. One Thing's for Certain is actually a one take performance. I was frustrated with it as an acoustic folk tune and when they threw the faders up I let it rip...and got into it. I didn't want to touch it stylistically b/c it had a life of its own. Probably could be tempered in spots for sure...but it rings perpetually as it is:-) Nice to have you on BROADJAM!!!!
