Awesome blog. Love all the Arizona stuff, especially the Al Perry 7". Any chance you'll ever upload his album Cattle Crossing?

PJS said...

Thanks trevor, appreciate the kind words. I will ask Al if he would mind, I know he was still selling it on his old site so I don't want to take any money out of his pocket! It's a classic though!

Trevor said...

Can you direct me to the site? I'd love to buy it if it is still available. I thought it was long out of print.

PJS said...

it used to be but the site appears to be down, let me check with him!

PJS said...

Trevor, please send me an e-mail at azlocal at g as Al said you can contact him directly!
