Update On Links

March 18, 2013 - I'm now using various file sites with varying success. With over 200 albums listed here, obviously I cannot upload everything at once. So if you're dying to hear something, please post a comment on that particular post and I will move it up in the priority queue. Enjoy!

Any posts taken down as a result of the sniveling coward will be re-upped. Check the link below for where to find them in the event that this site is unable to repost them.

Wizard of the Strings

When I picked this up the only thing I knew about Roy Smeck was that some Chick Bullock recordings were issued under his name. This set is rather short (only 41 minutes) but it's more than enough to hear what a musician he was. You can also see footage of Smeck showcasing his amazing talents in some short films on youtube. And you can get the album (including covers, booklet) here. +
