Orville Johnson- Your Voice Is A Muscle

Welcome to those of you who have received my sampler CD Your Voice Is a Muscle. I pressed it with a simple jacket that didn't have room for all the musician and recording credits so I've collected those here for you. The collection has some tunes that have been previously released and some that are newly recorded. I hope you've enjoyed the collection and here's the info...
