Bob, glad to hear you doing well. Haven't seen you since recording at my studio in Chelmsford in the mid - late 80's.
I still have your autograph.

Man, my prayers have been answered. Bob Martin is finally reissuing Midwest Farm Disaster on CD. I am a happy happy girl. The album I have has been played to the streets of Lowell. I received my copy of the ALBUM in the early 70's from Bob's wife Ann Marie, whom I had never met before. I worked at Pic 'N Save which was a discount women's clothing store above McQuades Department store and my boss would play albums and face the speaker out into the street to draw customers. Ann Marie brought the album up to us and told us of her husband and asked if we would play it. We did quite often, and it became one of my favorite albums and I have been a fan ever since. Thank you, Anne Marie and thank you, Bob, finally for the reissue.
Can't wait to hear the new stuff too.

Wow...a true blast from the past! My mother was working with Bob's mother when his album came out and I remember her bringing it home to me. I'm sure I still have it packed away with the rest of my vinyl! Best to you on your gig! And hello to Sandi Spence who knows my brother Don True! Great to read this story from snowy Vermont.

A little music is better than no music.
