    Somebody (Jordan?) discovered a grainy youtube of Dave jamming somewhere, very cool to see the man in action.

    I just got off the phone with Randy and he said he took down his website but folks are welcome to contact him on facebook. I'll give him the link to this page so he can make an appearance if he wants.

Randy had a web site at one time and you could order the disk from him, but the last time I searched I could not find the site. If anyone knows how to contact him, please post the info.

    Man I have to find a way to get one of Peter's recordings. I have been listening to the cut on the Cafe MP3 page over and over, looking and working on his transcriptions from "Masters of the Mandolin", listening to Jordan's great playing and today enjoying the video of Dave at a jam...and now I want more! I would love to hear any of his recordings, and the live recording referenced in this thread would be top of my list. I sure hope there is a way for Dave's work to be back out there for us younger/newer players to listen to!

    You should try to contact Randy Powell or the Lonestar Bluegrass Band. They are likely to have some of the last things that Dave recorded. It is possible to find some of his other recordings but they are pretty rare. You can find copies of the original Dixie Chicks album "Thank Heavens for Dale Evans" on eBay and Dave played on that recording. I will paste a list of recordings that I know of by Dave below, but if anyone knows of anything I missed, please post it here.

    Thanks.

    1999 Todd Hallawell – Before My Time; one tune: Music for a Found Harmonium

    I'd love to hear this one. BTW, Kelly Lancaster has been battling pancreatic cancer for a little while now and doing well. and dealing with the ups and downs. He unfortunately doesn't get out much anymore and instead is reserving his strength for this fight.

    I talked to him yesterday for about 1.5 hours about anything and everything after going 3 months with no word. We touched on the subject of Live @ Ovations and e really wants to get this published and out there but it didn't go much further than that. Kelly loved Dave and his playing.

    The solo that Dave plays on this tune gets me every time! It's a beautifully crafted solo that gives me the goosebumps.

    Mike, thanks so much for kindly including me in your giveaway. I've listened to Live At Ovations about a thousand times since it showed up in the mailbox!

    For anyone out there who hasn't heard this recording, I'd be glad to pay it forward by offering up the same deal: free copy to the first 5 folks to PM me their address.

    Anyway I can somehow get a copy of this show from anyone on the Cafe? Doesn't seem to be any other possible way to obtain it!

    If you send me your address, etc. I can make a copy for you. If anyone has "Plays the Hits" by Dave Peter's band "The Texas Rangers" I would like to get a copy. It was originally a cassette tape. If I could borrow a tape I can transfer it to digital and return the tape and a disk. I am not sure if Kelly played on that tape. He and Dave might not have met at that time -- probably 1991.

    How many Texas Rangers recordings was Dave on? I have 2. If one of those is Plays The Hits, I'll let you know.

    In thinking some more about DP, he really was right at the point where he was hitting his prime. The Dawgfinger release was state-of-the-art, top-shelf playing and arranging, head and shoulders above what he had already done (which itself was great). The vibe on that release was so excellent. No telling what he would have done had he lived.

    There were three Texas Rangers tapes. One is just called "Texas Rangers." Another one is called "Nowhere to Hide." My understanding is that there is a third tape called "Plays the Hits" but I have not heard it. If you have it, let me know and we can work out some sort of swap.

    I agreed -- Dave was sounding great on those last recordings. He could play hot fiddle tunes but part of what made his sound so interesting was that he knew jazz and classical music as well. I also think he had a nice, fluid sounding technique. Listen to "Jerusalem Ridge" on the Lonestar Bluegrass Band's album "Best of Times." All the musicians play great on that tune and it has a nice, smooth sound.

    Not sure I have this

    Lonestar Bluegrass Band's album "Best of Times." Looks like I need to get it.

    I have something Dave is on called Bart Trotter, maybe someone is interested in that?

    Dave played on Bart Trotter's "It's About Time" disk. There is some great music on that recording. I has a 1999 date. Bart had the disks for sale on his web site at one time, but that was a few years ago.

    I had the great privilege of playing many hours with Dave at Winfield. Other than Mike Marshall, I would say he's the most accomplished and well-rounded mandolinist I've ever heard. Miss you every day, Dave!

    I have recently requested from someone here any update on release of any DP music since it's been several years since anything has been heard about it.
    No response to my message so far.
