Our first recording!

One of things we have to do to promote the band and the new CD is check the Internet for new mentions of us and in doing so I found a unique item. The very first recording I ever made, along with Sam Cimino who appeared on the first 3 UniversalDice CDs and others is still available for sale! Why is this amazing? The reason is because this recording was made in 1981 on vinyl only!

One other thing: the songs "I Wanna Be Normal" and "Someone Will Love Me Tonight" and "All American Girl" were really pretty good tunes.  It is not beyond the realm of possibility that these songs just might get re-recorded by UniversalDice.  Stay tuned!

Yes you can see this item here when we called ourselves "The Zoots":
