  1. Wow. Nice treat! Haven't come across much DD Boots on the interwebs....thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks, CB. Totally agree there needs to be more music out there from Don (& Marti). Cheers.

  2. I saw Marti and Don at The Ramshead in Annapolis, MD a few years back...Sweet show!

    1. I'm not sure I can "top" that, but the wife and I saw them at a great show in Charlotte, N.C. (at Spirit Square, the same venue at which they recorded that live Marti set a year before or after we saw them). Don was wearing that "do rag" on his head, I guess to hide his hair loss!!

    2. Ha, that's pretty awesome you caught the show at Spirit Square...
