A new contribution from ERIC IMPAKT

(scott) Make no mistake, Eric Impakt is a valuable member of the club, he sent a great bunch of boots
a while ago, and sends a bunch more today.......He's been gracious enough to write them up, so take a look and see what he's put together for ya........more great stuff from the GBFAL TEAM!

Hey Growing Board, I'm Back!
    I've got 3 of my favorite live shows Buster Poindexter, Roger Miller, and Jim Croce. These are shows that are funny, personal... Just the kind of night you wish you were at and the stories during the shows are the best. Buster is a really fun one. The ultimate lounge act show and the band is great. Roger Miller is a funny country star known for King Of The Road but he wrote some ridiculous "children's" songs too. Chug A Lug got many a drinking party started. Jim Croce is another really fun one. If all you know are his greatest hits, this live show gives you a sense of how funny he could be. Jim definitely left us way to early but this is a nice little time capsule.  

    Next I've got a must have collectors bootleg. The Van Halen Zero album. These are the 8 track demos from New York that Gene Simmons recorded. The sound is killer for just 8 track recording! Gene shopped it around in 76 bought couldn't get them aDEAL. It has some great surprises. The sound effect that starts Running With The Devil is actually the ending of House Of Pain. Plus some of these songs got reworked before making it on to an album and some never saw the light of day until A Different Kind Of Truth and the reunion with Dave! 
    I got all these from SugarMegs and tracked them out, titled everything and clean up the sound or boosted the volume. Enjoy everybody, i listen to these all the time. The Buster Poindexter one is great for long road trips.

  1. My god thanks, please submit often and more often

    1. No problem it's a lot of fun. i've got some good stuff planned for next time

  2. I got this Roger Miller concert a few years ago, and upon downloading and hearing it again it remains excellent. Performing in top form and a little over a year later and he'd be dead.
