Well it's April 2020 and it's time for a new collection of tunes. I can't really say a new CD because this music may never make it onto a physical CD. Things have changed over the years and now most music is listened to online. This is not strictly a 495's effort as I did the majority of the tracks myself (guitar, bass, keyboards and vocals) though Paul played drums on most of these tunes. In addition Judith sang background on Fragile and Heather did some excellent clapping on numerous tunes.

This collection of tunes is call Odds & Ends because it encompasses songs recorded over a long period of time that never made it onto any of my others CDs for one reason or another.

Some of these tunes were recorded in my Black Forest studio but all the newer tunes were recorded and mixed in my Rockrimmon recording studio using  Reaper recording software running on an iMac. It is amazing what one can now do on a personal computer at home. No one other than myself is  responsible for any issues with these tunes.

  We
want to make one thing perfectly clear: we record these songs with total respect for the artists that wrote and performed them originally. We never have and never will try to make money on any of these recordings. This CD cannot be sold for any reason because we don't own the rights to most of these songs. We record these songs for ourselves, our families and our friends only, never to make money.

Odds & Ends

Here are the songs. For the best and most accurate listening experience you should listen to these tunes
with headphones (ideally Sony MDR-7506 to hear exactly what I did when we mixed these tunes), after the consumption of a couple of
 beers or glasses of wine.
