Hi John - I met you with my daughter after your show@ Port Washington Library on L.I. several months ago and were nice enough to play "One Day" one of my favs. John - I have to tell you that I bought Portfolio a month ago. Wow !! What a treat !! Great track selection - unexpected unreleased GEMS & GREAT PRODUCTION. Please grab Mark and come to Long Island. I know you pack the house. Nobody makes music like B&R. Gary
Thank you for the music - John! Been playing your words since the 70's.
Good web site you have got here.. It's hard to find high-quality writing like yours these days. I honestly appreciate individuals like you! Take care!!
I figured it was time to sign the guest book! You are such a wonderful artist - blessed with incredible talent and a drive to share that gift with others. Your music comes from a very special place. Those of us who have had it in our lives since the early 70s know that truth. So glad the double CD is coming out. Can't wait to add it to my collection! Thanks for the music John - keep it coming!
I have your two albums with you and rodney since the early 70s love every cut. I was wondering if I could buy a silvers album if you have one or can you tell me where I could purchase it.I am going to purchase your newer cds also but I am not on paypal.We have an old movie house in town Wilkes Barre Pa.and would love to see you play there.How can we set it up.
I was in LA on a photo shoot and a good friend pulled out your first album and said - "Hey man - listen to these guys." I did and when I got back to Chicago I tracked down your second album and proceeded to wear them both out - getting lost in the magic you created. I'm on the east coast now - writing my own songs and wishing your tour schedule brought you a bit closer than Dayton. Thanks for the inspiration. Keep up the good work.
Thanks for playing at Arcadia High School - 1973 or 74 with Honk and another band. Was there a song you played called Pennyweight or something close to that?
Thank you for a great show tonight. I bought 2 CD's and can't wait to listen to them. Your lyrics are beautiful. Momma's Coming Home Tonight had a very special meaning for me. My sister was diagnosed with cancer 7 years ago today and althought she didn't win the fight--she fought hard. And she did go Home to 8 children and a husband that fell in love with her all over again. Thank you and please come back to The Turning Point in Piermont - NY
So enjoyed your Commack performance in living room proving to us that you still have that beautiful voice and amazing acoustic ability. I mostly enjoyed your stories in between the songs as they helped me understand your road from point A to point B! Loving the "Home Again" CD I purchased that night and I am thankful for how the music brings us together as friends. Thank you to your wife for sharing you! 🙂
Your music has been an etched in part of my life since your 1st album. And trust me - there have been times in my life when your songs and in particular - the lyrics - either hit me broadside - or saved my ass. Either way - it's always guaranteed that a 100% positive result will occur! Thank you SSooo much for all these years of love. And thank God for digital audio: I no longer have to support the vinyl-industrial-obsolescence industry! 🙂 Mahalo - Forrest
Can you help me find any sheet music with cords for "Don't you know"? Any help appreciated. MM
I first met you John when I was a high school principal in Provo - Utah. You and Michael Mclean put on a benefit concert for my students one year. It was such a success that you came back. I love your music John - but - more important I love what you stand for and how you reach out to help others in need. You're a true artist that inspires so many. Thank you for your music - your talents and your example. I have retired from being an educator and now focus on preventing youth suicide in Utah. I have a picture of you and Micheal on my wall that reminds me of the importance of reaching out to others. Thank you!!
A big fan of Batdorf and Rodney music from the 1970s - listened to it again last night and the songs have as much meaning as they did 40 years ago. As a bit of trivia the vinyl copy that I bought back in the 70s of the "Life is You" album had one side of the record itself correctly labeled with artist and songs - but the second side was labeled with "Tony Orlando and Dawns Greatest Hits" and their songs; fortunately - it was just a labeling error 😉
I was introduced to Batdorf and Rodney by my brother Ronald in 1972. We loved to listen to the Batdorf and Rodney album and shared some really special times over the years listening to this powerful life music. I lost my brother in 2010 to cancer. Today I listen to this music to stay connected to my brother. Thank you for giving me this.
Hi John - my wife - Krys - and I saw you and James last night in Fountain Hills. Great show. Wonderful harmonies. Cool venue. Had a chance this morning to listen to Wood and Stone II. Wow! Very nice production. Sympathy for the Devil....KILLER. Will you ever play out with a full band? Look forward to seeing you again. Best to James. Take care. Leon
Hi John - my first B&R experience was at a Doobie Brothers concert in Reno.Wow I was blown away by the incredible vocal-wooden sound.I moved to Las Vegas in my early twenties - where I raised a family and shared the music that I cherished with friends & family. I met another local fan who surprised me with the knowledge of you and Marks early Vegas beginnings. I'm ever more gratefully that we have a shared geographic history ie Mt. Charleston - or the void of services from Rainbow to Red Rock. Thanks for making my yester- years fill like yester-days
hi john - love your music i saw your video on youtube. thank you - funnygamezone.com
I loved your music...I'm also 60 years old and it was those years back then that have kept me young in mind and soul today...Thank you for the awesome sounds that you brought us back then and now...
Just this last week I played your "album". I am 60 years old; you can imagine how many years I've been listening to you. I AM A WORKING MAN has to be one of the best songs to date. (We're talking 2013.) When I hear it...it brings me back...but it is a song for today. As I have aged - how I saw it in my 20's may look different than in my 60's...but - it still brings a tear to my eye. So true - so beautiful.
Couldn't get enough of your music back in the 70's. Had your albums - 8-tracks - and I was a happy man whether cruizin' with friends or coasting at the beach in Hawaii. Recently loaded a few of my favorites on my mp3 player. Throwback!
