If You Meet The Blues On The Road.....

A Good Day At Inner Ear Studios

Randy got some free recording time at Inner Ear Studios recently.  The place is great, it has a comfy, hip, attuned to the musical world kind of atmosphere.  He’d recorded there before and evidently Don Zientara, the owner, found Randy…
