ROB SEZ: Thanks to Batchain (aka Larry T.), we can celebrate Mitch's recent induction into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame in style. At the induction ceremony last month, Mitch and his band, Balderdash Ltd., played a live set at the Gem Theatre in Kannapolis, N.C. Like Gravel Truck and other Mitch-led band efforts, Balderdash, Ltd. functions as a vehicle to play music from several eras of Mitch's history: Let's Active, solo material, and the obscure-but-choice covers he relishes.

  1. This is wonderful! and great sound. Brings me back to Lets Active at the 9:30 club in DC around 1984-85. thank you very much!

    1. Was that, by chance, a Let's Active show in Feb. 1985? If so, I have it posted at the blog:
