Steve's house and studio are no more, victims of the Camp Fire.

Steve's been my drummer for about seven years, and four years ago he relocated to Paradise, where we've been practicing and recording for a weekend almost every month.

Most of these are original songs written (mostly) by Glenn Diamond and Tom Shellenberger, when we had a group in the 1980s ... our most recent album also includes some possibly-familiar cover songs. The last three albums listed are "archival" recordings from back then.

You can check out our "theme song" (along with lyrics and pictures) at YouTube:
The Children of Paradise

The band name as well as the song title. These were recorded at various times at the (old location of) Freight & Salvage and a couple of other local venues (hence varying recording quality!). Original & public domain songs.

We have a couple of new releases posted, one with one of our originals re-written to mention the fire which we recorded a few weeks ago at Steve's new place, and a cover of an old Bob Dylan song -- one the last we recorded before the fire ...
