Thanks Mel. I have the first 3. I think there's a vol 5 too?

Here's another gentleman of whom I've never heard tell. Thanks for letting me have a listen.

Very enjoyable music. It does remind me somewhat of Les Paul recordings (with less multi-track guitar overdubbing) from the same period.

There does seem to be a volume 5, mostly on offer as paid mp3 downloads. I've not found the cd for sale at any of the usual venues.
