    Sounds fascinating, Tony. Thanks for the heads-up. I had no idea that the Bauman and Hirsh songs were available anywhere. BTW, I think Boatwright / JK

      Sounds fascinating, Tony. Thanks for the "heads-up." I had no idea that
      the Bauman and Hirsh songs were available anywhere.

      BTW, I think Boatwright / JK Overtone recordings are wonderful too! ;-)
