Re: [GBrown-L] Re: In Harmony Contributions (offer closed)
- Thanks Graham for your help with In Harmony fund raising
and I hope you caught some fish! Graham graciously helped
me out with a similar offer that I made a while back and I'd
like to do the same for him, and IH. I'm too busy today to
do this so here's fair warning for everyone that at some point
this week, I'll post a similar offer for live GB shows on CD
and will take the first 5 or so responses. I will offer the
CD's on Graham's list and a few more. Stay tuned!
Greg L. (in sunny and lookin'-like-Fall, upstate NY)
