The Tombstone Blues Band was a short lived high school band
formed in 1982 in Sudbury, Massachusetts, USA. They were formed
from the remaining members of The Edge band.

The primary basist for the group, Mike Gordon, went on to be
a member of the world famous band Phish.

The master CD-R is one of a small number (3 or 4) which were made in
the year 1996. I found the original cassette tape in my archives at
that time and got a friend at work to help digitize the tape (in hopes
to preserve it). He had a deck that could play back 12x speed tapes
(which at the time did not really matter as we could have sped up the
digital tracks digitally). I do recall spending an afternoon making
the digitized tracks, some quick artwork, and burning a few CD-Rs.
I got two copies of the CD-R with artwork, plus the mater without art,
my work friend kept a copy, and a copy was given to Mike Gorton by me
when we last hooked up for the meet-and-greet after the Phish show
at the Worcester Centrum Centre in Massachusetts on Friday
November 27th, 1998.

I would kindly like to ask that nobody re-seed this release on
any other tracker or source without at least notifying me in advance.
The same goes for any remastering or artwork projects.
