I love this kind of documentary...gets me closer to the music, how it was written and recorded and the mindset of the artists, producers and engineers. Hope there is more technical info on the DVD, such as types of mic's used, effects, compressors, etc. Looking forward to MOJO coming to Tulsa in September - I am so there!

Hello Tom and Heartbreakers I discovered you guys less than a year ago and fell in love with your poetry and your melodies. Your performance at Red Rocks was my 50th birthday present. One of the best birthdays I have ever had! Wishing you the best of everything- Late Bloomer in Denver
