Batdorf and Rodney_Portfolio Double CD Set

The two disc fully remastered Batdorf and Rodney “Portfolio” CD goes to manufacturing on Monday. It’s about time this was made and I know you will love it. The project will include the never heard before demos from 1973 as well as all my originals from the three B&R albums, 2 songs from Still Burnin’ and two Silver originals and one song from my Home Again solo CD.. Quite a large collection. Thanks to Dean Sciarra from Its About Music for all of his mastering help and the cover artwork design.
