Tom Heyman and co. are the backing band for this cavalcade of starz singing a Lee song (or two).

Stephie and I are each doing a song or two along with: Marc Dantona (Pillars of Silence), Kelley Stoltz, Meghan Edwards (Pillars of Silence), James Finch (Jackpot, Prairie dog, Two Sheds), Justin Frahm (This Union Standard, Harbours), Warren Hugel (Citay, Tussle), Charlie Knote, Jeffrey Luck Lucas, Josh Polluck (Citay), Meryl Press, Chris Sipe (The Herms), Sean Smith (Solo, Citay),Brian Sullivan (This Union Standard) and more...

The bizarre practice of re-makes is not limited to Hollywood behavior. It's a growing sickness we may never completely understand. In order to survive, stories must be retold.


Each CD - with hand-set letterpress art by Bruce Licher (Savage Republic, Scenic) is literally unique. Of a one-time-only pressing of 1000 copies, about 500 copies remain, numbered individually. Each includes photos and a chapbook detailing the recording.
