I worked on a few songs yesterday. I recorded them on SoundCloud, here are the links.
I wrote a fan letter to the band the Ozark Mountain Daredevils. I got this email back, which I thought was very nice…
Thanks for the honor of a Daredevils song by your version on Youtube. We sent it on to Larry Lee, the song writer and singer of the original. It would be great if the band could get a show in Phoenix. Not real likely as they seem to be staying closer to home these days. It really takes an interested venue owner or promoter to want to book the band, and that is done through an agency. We haven’t much control over the booking.
If you want to see the band in concert the best way to do that is purchase the reunion DVD set that we have. It’s a great production and you can see them right in your own living room.
Check it out when you have time. Merchandise
Thanks again and best wishes,
New Era Productions for The OMDs

Hi, my name is Tyna. Just wanted to tell you how much I’ve enjoyed your music throughout the years! I have a real appreciation for your collaborative efforts. Thanks for the wonderful music!
I cover one of your songs, ” You Know Like I Know “. I do this from my spare room, not making money! Just appreciate this beautiful song. Here is the link to my cover…
http://youtu.be/nN4lOSQVXI4. This is my interpretation, I don’t read music so I learned this by ear many years ago. The original of this song is beautiful!
Any chance of seeing you in Phoenix, AZ? Wild Horse Pass is a popular venue bands from your era play at…just saw Roger Hodgson there.
Hope to see you live one day.
With warm regards and great appreciation,
Tyna J. Metzner
