Video, All the Birds in the World

February 4, 2018

Just posted a youtube video minutes ago, of a very happy keyboard song. I’ve been writing a massive amount of music, mostly on guitar with a break on the piano, and this little 5 chorder came out with a lot of spirit and joy.

Now imagine a sky with all the birds and listen.

Willie Griffin’s Song, “I Noticed” and video.

November 22, 2017

Recently I made and posted a new video on youtube that spotlights a song by Willie Griffin. It was released on my 12 By 12 record label (mid 80s). More about his song later. But first some background.

Willie Griffin is a sensation now for record collectors. There are two reasons why.
He wrote great songs, and when he recorded them, his guitar was waaaaay out of tune!.

That and the fact that he released so few records, make each one highly desirable. A 45 recorded by him, “I Love You”, went for $887.77 a year ago, with 17 bidders driving up the price.

With all this interest, I thought I’d share the song he put on one of my co-op record company albums. For each album, we had 12 musicians/groups who recorded 12 songs. Then we assembled all the recordings on one LP.

Each group paid 1/12 of the cost and got 1/12 of the records made – 500 copy limited release. That’s why the name 12 By 12.

The youtube video I made is for Griffin’s song and recording ‘”I NOTICED”. It, like his others on youtube, is a great song with that terrible out of tune guitar.

Hear the song, see the cover, and decide for yourself, before all the rare copies are scooped up by collectors..

Then go hear his other songs on youtube:
“I Love You.”
“Where There’s Smoke There’s Fire.”

2,300 and counting

October 10, 2016

The TeXas Video Showdown has now been viewed by 2,300 people.
The purpose of the worst video ever made, is to challenge the 3CEO’s that control music, and kept it from changing or growing.

Join this music revolt, or start your own!

TeXas Video Showdown and CD Baby Conference

July 4, 2016

Dear Reader,

Today on the 4th, a day of our country’s independence, my music protest TeXas Video Showdown, crossed another small milestone. The video has added another 100 views.

Recently I wrote to my online music distributor CD Baby about the protest. They are having a musical conference soon. I suggested that the music industry needs a change and that they should cover that at the conference.

I think unless we oppose the music industry controlled by 3 CEO’s, no CD Baby musician, or any musician anywhere has a fair chance for a career.

Here is my letter and their reply. Thanks CD Baby.

====================

CD Baby,

Will you be discussing the music protest against 3 CEO’s running music, and only supporting teen pop?
The protest is from Dallas, supports all musicians and opposes a music industry down to 3 companies that control 80%.

Hope you will. That change alone would help everyone have a chance at a career.
Sometimes a little protest brings vitality to the music industry. It sure could use it now.

This post is about the 3 men that control all the music.
That is not an exaggeration, it is a fact.
