A Jimmie Spheeris fan sent a message about the cover of Jimmie's final CD... and that got me thinking about the time from '96 to 2000 when Johnny Pierce (the late, great and sorely missed founder of Rain Records) and I were working to save Jimmie master tapes before they disintegrated in in the Sony vaults. I remembered this page on the Jimmie site and thought I'd share it. I'm thinking about how the little things we send out across the net ripple back and forth for years. Sometimes they come back to haunt us... but sometimes they come back to bring comfort.
The Jimmie Spheeris restoration project was a high point in my creative and personal life. I'm so fortunate to have been a part of it. I think Jimmie would be pleased with what we did to bring his legacy to a new generation of listeners.
