Joe lived in Baltimore for awhile and I had occasion to play with him, well,
that is, listen to him because his stuff is so off the wall sometimes it 's
almost like trying to play with Tommy Potts. AND it's so much fun to listen
to. The man is brilliant. Even Chris Norman was transfixed. Joe also plays
the banjo like that (which makes more sense).

Thierry, HMT has them if you can't find them anywhere, although you should
be able to get the Fisherstreet CD from Ossian (Cork).
