Woods box set?

I said in my eulogy that the tragedy of David’s death is that more people haven’t heard his music. That is referring not only to his great songs but also to his wonderful guitar playing. We have tons of evidence of his brilliance put to tape and are in the process of collecting them from studios and producer type friends of ours. On the way from Don Dixon via Mitch Easter is a session we did in Charlotte’s Reflections Studio C back in the day. On the way from Bill Lloyd (upon Dan’s approval, which I couldn’t imagine being a problem) is the 5 song RCA session we did in Nashville and the real ass kicker is the stuff we did at Jamie Hoover’s Washateria Studio down in Clover, SC. That's the record we did in 3 days, consuming 2 half gallons of Jack Daniels Green. That stuff is mixed but there’s a chance we might bake it, dump it to digital and screw with some more, who knows. In one form or another it’s gotta come out, it's definitely the best thing we ever did. Add to that the tons of live stuff we have, including our show as Bo Diddly’s backup band and hell...you got a damn box set! I’m not announcing this yet, but it’s in the works. Funding could be an issue so at the proper time we may ask for donations in exchange for having your name emblazoned, forever in Rock history, prominently on the cover somewhere, and the CD's of course. Please comment and let us know if you think this might be something you’d be interested in. The music is pretty damn unbelievable, and some of it can be heard on The David Enloe Memorial MySpace page.
‘at sumbitch rocked like ASS! Let’s tell the world about it.

TA,

I've got a couple of guitars I will sell, a few pints of blood, maybe a kid or two - who knows....I am willing to contribute whatever I can to get this record out. I agree with you when you said "this is the record that Keef would make if he had any SONGS!" The tracks that I have heard are a good picture of the Woods and DE at their finest.

I have been waiting years for this. Keep the masses informed and I'm sure funding and participation will flow.

I will definitely contribute! For many years I've wished the Woods came out with a second disc. You guys were performing a lot of great songs that weren't on the 1st one. A multi-disc or box set would be unbelievable. Those two great demos on the memorial site should lead the way! More of David's work needs to be out there. Who knows, a copy might get in the right person's hands and breath new life into David work, crazier things have happened. So much of the music business seems to be based on chance and luck.

hey terry. fine idea! btw, i put that k-kmart hot dogs show (the novelty songs and the "loafa bread" play) on mini-disc when i thought that was gonna be the wave of the future. if you need that to get some of that added as part of this project, lemme know. still trying to get it into mp3 form on the david memorial page. i have a really sucky pc at home, so that's slowing that particular stuff showing up on the memorial page.

Within 5 miles of my house, there is a plasma center, a sperm bank, and one of the finest transplant hospitals at which I would gladly part with some of my not-so-vital organs. Hell, yeahhhhh....make it happen!
