July 25th, Retrophonics Studios - Jim and I loaded the files for "Life Goes On" a song I started at Cave Canem Studios with Barry Dunaway. Sue Westcott had added some violin parts to the 2 track now we can start mixing. Also laid down tracks to a new song I just finished called "Clouded Memories". Jim and I reviewed his guitar tracks on "My Chevrolet" for the upcoming Big Lonesome CD. And last of all we got the tracks ready to start mixing The Big Lonesomes version of "My Bird". It was a good day.
July 27th, Carpetbaggers DAVE, Sue and Tony at Hurricane Grill and Wings - Yesterday morning I started a new tune "Harpoon Sadie", it has a "Not Fade Away" feel. At the gig, the weather report said it was going to rain the whole time we were playing, so we set up under cover. It spit a few drops while I was setting up but then didn't rain a drop all night. The place was packed, we had a blast! See you next Wednesday!
July 28th, Bagan and Company - Dan and I got some ideas for our "Best Of Bagan and Company LIVE" featuring the Carpetbaggers. Also getting some ideas for the next two The Big Lonesome releases "My Bird" and "My Chevrolet".

July 30th, Carpetbaggers DAVE, Tony and Frankie at JT's Seafood Shack - Another hot evening, but we had a good time. We missed Sue but would like to thanks all of our friends for showing up.
