A \"live\" exclusive from Don Ross, master Canadian guitarist. His new CD isn't out yet. This cut was recorded at The Rogue earlier this year. He returns with monster bassist Michael Manring in November:

26Michael ManringI Left AmericaSoliloquy
English singer Roy Bailey returned his MBE in protest at the British government's involvement in the war in Iraq and its failure to condemn Israel for the latest bout of military madness in Lebanon. This old song complains about the first Gulf War, but is still distressingly relevant. Followed up with a couple more anti-war anthems:

Adrian Dolan (The Bills) guested with Outlaw Social last week, and gave me this fine CD by a young band from Victoria whose albums he produces. Lovely stuff! Followed up with England's Show Of Hands and their bassist. They were so impressive in Edmonton last month! Thanks to them for sending the CDs.
