Oh, and it was Bobby Thompson who played sax for the Bob Dorr and the Blue Band many years ago, but I still don't know who actually played on that one.

Tonight we feature the 1988 double cassette release of the Blue Band called Dealer's Choice.  It was their greatest hits to that point.  The band in 1988 featured Bob Dorr on harmonica and vocal, Molly Nova on Violin, Bass, and Vocal, Jeff Peterson on guitar and vocal, Ron DeWitte guitar, bass, and vocal,  Bobby Thompson on sax, and Bryce, Loshman on drums.  Som of these recordings go back to 1981 and include Bill Cannon on sax, Phil Bunky Marlow on sax, E scott Esbeck in guitar and bass, Phil Mass sound and lights.  Tom Tatman at Catamount recordings was the Engineer.  

Just a note, technical difficulties and strep throat cut his show short.  I could talk about the Blue band for hours and hours!!
