11-05-15 - Thinking of You - just wrote last night for my wife Katrinka who's in the US for a month plus. And quickly threw together my first music video for Youtube. - dc

8-08-15 - Added six song pages. Don't Want to be your Enemy is from 1982 with a few versions - all pretty weird. The rest listed at the bottom of the Song Page Index are from Bali. Only Wedding Song 2015 has a recorded version and that's a video on Youtube of me singing it at our reception. Recordings to come.

Welcome to The Archive- no discrimination - it's all there - the mediocre, the bad, and the awful -  the MP3s of DC acoustic archival recordings. Starting with the first cassette tape (of 38] made from 1972 through the years, linked from the song names on this List of DC Songs (same link). Also there are links to some compilations and productions of these songs.
