Thanks for posting this. He's also released a new album within the last year called "Down to the Roots." I'm sure a Google search will get you close. Very bluesy.

I can listen to the Youngbloods any time any place. Banana's keyboards are a favorite. Very talented musician. I usually don't request anything but when I saw this listed I thought please give us more. Thanks for all the years of great music. Irreplaceable.
