Grooves' a 73 minute & 59 second 12 song Lev-ology of the best cuts
from the last three RLWK Levtron.com Cds. Some of the tunes have been
re-mixed into more hard hitting compacted shorter versions of the most
radio requested tunes, all in a more rack-able, filing friendly package.

sleeves we've been using, so we're going with the plastic jewel cases
from now on. itsaulgood.

release due out for Fall of 2004 which'll be called 'VooDoo Boogaloo'

harp master Jerry Portnoy plays a killer harmonica solo on Lev's tribute
tune to Lev's mentor Willie Mitchell, 'Memphis Memories'. 'Sax' Gordon
also contributes some honkin' baritone sax along with Karl Denson on
tenor, as a horn section. Funky, funky, funky. We just finished cutting
another 4 tracks of new 'HOT' originals the last week of June at Witch
Doctor Recording Studio in Salem Mass. btw: Shawn's moving the studio
to Brooklyn NY. He and Lev should be back twistin' and turnin' the knobs,
punchin' the keys, mixin' & masterin', once again this October 2004.
We've already moved the organ down there!
