The CD "SOUL PATCH' was released on 8-25-01, and is available for internet purchase below. This is the band's second release. The third release, "Blue Eyed Blues" is available from the home page.
Features of the recording: On the track, "Dark Night", Michael and Julian Lage (the then-12 year old jazz star with whom Michael and the band have played on numerous occasions- and who recently was featured on the Grammy's) recorded a duet which includes a very soulful and creative solo by Julian. Norton Buffalo added an exciting and soulful harp part to the shuffle, "I Refuse" (see below), and Michael's recording of an acoustic tune, "Drivin' 95 Blues,"features his slide guitar work.
The record was manufactured by Reeltime.
