A space to display my autographed LPs and share anecdotes related to them. Comments are always welcome.

I wrote a letter to Marvin Rainwater in 1999, telling him how much I enjoy his music and asking him to sign this LP cover. He sent me back the signed cover, a signed 8x10, two CD-Rs of his music, and a note explaining the significance of the guitar in the photo. I thought it was really cool that he took the time to put together a nice package for me and relate that amusing anecdote about him accidentally cracking Red Foley's (beautiful) guitar. Aesthetically, I would have preferred the inscription without the side-comment, but the unique way he signed it made for a more memorable interaction with this under-appreciated artist.
