~Self-Released gem from Mr. Carroll here. This was originally going to be released on Sire Records in 1998 and titled "Rock & Roll Band."
~I suppose this would get lumped in with the Alt-Country sounds of the 1990s.
~Two tracks did appear on movie soundtracks for "Election" and "Drop Dead Gorgeous."
~Really catch songs!

It seems crazy that this set came out about 5 years ago. This is a huge comedy set that I hope you enjoy. Three CDs and a DVD.
Quite a few of the featured acts here are killing it still.
Highlights in my eyes: Jon Glaser, Aziz Ansari, A.D. Miles'
Well Let's Invite Them Up!

Springfield, MO band the Morells LP here. Good old-fashioned rock and roll from the Gentlemen and Lady. They share a couple members with the Skeletons and it sounds like it. But the world can always more pop music like this, so no worries. This is the CD rip, which includes two tracks not found on the original vinyl. If your interested in a vinyl rip let me know and I will probably work on it.

So I should know more of the dB's music, but for whatever reason this is about the only set of songs I have sat down with. Someday I will do the same with the LPs and 45s upstairs.
This is a collection of demos and what-nots. It's long at 26 tracks, but its okay because my personal favorite is the last one.

Back in the early 90s my sister and I would check out this three-disc set from the library fairly often. I am surprised we never made any tapes from it. Anyways, fast forward to the computer age and I start reminiscing about those old songs. I checked them out again and instead of burning all three I made an hour long mix. You'll have to download to see/hear what is on it. I don't want to ruin the fun. Chim chim cher-ee
