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!
John; Hey! Just got my first copy of "Off the Shelf" from Amazon. Can't listen to it yet though- don't have a LP turntable! Getting it copied to CD. I've never heard the album! Just found you on line last week. Looks like your doing OK. I thought you would- you don't giveup. Great to find you man! email if you can. email@example.com tel (321)288-1444
Great to hear your music again. I played B&R back in the mid 70's as a DJ on WTCC - Springfield - MA. I was excited to see them listed as once again playing your album in 2012.
Great music. I'm from the Oshkosh Wisconsin area so you know from that I'm sort of big-time when it comes to music. Anyways - I also like singing and fancy myself quite a vocalist. One time I sang for 4 straight hours to my dog - Mr Boney. Anyways - if you'd ever want some original music or anything drop me a line - I'm a big fan!
I was hooked on b&r in the 70's and just ran across the free downloads on freegal. It reminded me of the pure - beautiful music of then. I would love to hear more.
It was so great meeting you again in Austin. I saw you there with James Lee Stanley. You guys were so much fun.
Hello and Happy Holiday's just seen your name on the beavercreek list that get's sent will check out your music soon are you ever in the Seattle area?have a great holidaycheryl
Thank you for being part of the soundtrack of my life.
I heard one album of B&R in 1974 and I was hooked. Since then there has been nothing that compares to your sound. But where can I find lyrics and sheet music (guitar chords)? Don't have much luck online. Would really love to learn the music. Best of luck - always. Love you guys. God Bless.
John really like your music and cant get enough of it.That's about it.
Old Man dreamin - that's me now 67 and going strong.I have only recently come across John Batdorf's music after seeing the name Batdorf & Rodney on Freebird radio.I requested a song called "All I need" and that was it I was hooked.John I can't get enough of your music buddy.I will be getting as many of your cd's as I can because I just think it's great music.Ciao for now.
Looking forward to your concert on Nov 10th at Trinity House...i have enjoyed your music and looking forward to a live show.
I too grew up in Las Vegas and saw John and Mark at the Kitchen and on many occassions. I remember most vividly seeing Batdorf and Rodney as the opening act for ELO at the Stardust Hotel! Most recently seeing you both together at Saxby's Coffee shop in Las Vegas! What memories!
Where does one find tab for your music. Loved your music as a kid in the 70's and it's great to rediscover it now! And - I do remember "The Summer of Love"....
Looking forward to your house concert at our house - in Dayton - on Nov. 9th. It's going to be a great time. Home Again!!
I was a senior in high school when I first heard your music and I loved it. I was living in a little town called Enon - not too far away from Beavercreek. I think that Batdorf and Rodney - Richie Furay - Sonny Flaherty and the Ohio Players were the only acts out of that area.
Thank god we had a radio station like KSHE "USED" to be here in St. Louis in the 70's.....the D.J.'S back then made SURE we heard classic timeless music...and yours NEVER gets old!
Miss you all cuz. Give all a hug from us. Keep playing !!
Hi John - I am still totally bummed that I missed your gig in Situate - MA. Your music has been with me for 35+ years. I was ecstatic that you were playing nearby and that I would finally get to see you live. The wedding that I was officiating that day was delayed (the Groom's uncle - who had come for the wedding and was staying at his parent's home - passed away that morning). The wedding (unfortunately a somber one) was delayed a few hours. There was just no way I could have made it to your concert in time. The one good thing that came out of all this is that I've been listening to your old vinyl and "One Last Wish" almost nonstop since then. Love your music and I hope you come back east soon.
