Dear Crisptones, just listening to your tune, "These Old Photographs" and gave it 5 stars......nice song, sounds a tad like the Nitty Gritty Dirt band....one of my all time favorite bands.....saw them at the Troubadour numerous times in the late 60's...early 70's. Anyway, if you get a chance stop on by our Broad Jam site and listen to our song, "Pancho Villa's Gold" you might really enjoy it.......has that Mexican border feel with no Walls.............
