Mike Viola - Even More Rare Odds and Ends

Sorry it's been a while since my last post. Life intrudes. Here is an assortment of rare odds and ends from Mike Viola. Some of these tracks are demos for his fabled "Blue Thumb" record. Still others date back to Mike's teenage years with his band "Snap". Each and every one of these tracks was contributed privately by the readers of this blog. Thank you!

(By the way, I'm still looking for Mike's long out of print electronic release "Temple of Static". Please let me know if anyone reading this has this ultra-rare release)

The latest news is that Mike is recording new duet tracks with Kelly Jones. Very excited to hear these when they are baked....

By the way, does anyone know hoe rare the blue thumb album on CD is? I ordered via amazon the "Live at the Bonboniere" EP - and got the "Blue Thumb" album promo instead some months ago (I didn't complain ;-).
