Ritt Deitz

Uvulittle Records

Horses and Smoke, Ritt Deitz’ new album, his sixth on Uvulittle, was recorded live to open-reel tape last winter in Oregon, Wisconsin.

Indeed, he's joined by his son Wilder on piano and his two core band members, Joe Meisel and Dave Foss. Madison fiddle wizard, Biff Blumfumgagnge sits in on two tracks (and mastered the album.)

Various Artists - Compilations

Uvulittle Records

This is a great sampler of the Mother Fool's music scene, circa 1996.

At the Heart of What's Obvious

Elizabeth Schaefer

Wrecked Moviehouse

This CD best captures Schaefer's vocal delivery and which best accents that delivery with lovely background instrumentation. There are 13 songs (all original) debuted on this CD and there's a flow which strangely compliments the diversity of this unique album
