Check out out my new CD 'cocktail napkin'. It is a collection of 12 songs; 4 of my favorite rock and roll vocal tunes from the 60's and 8 original instrumentals. The cover design i've had in mind for many years. It was the beginning of the end for album art when cds came out. The format was reduced to the size of a cocktail napkin.
