This album was set to be released on July 10th 2020. Unfortunately thats the day Gordon Stone passed away. With time to process and mourn the loss of this extremely talented artist we are now ready to share it with the world. This double album is a nostalgic look back at some of the incredible music he had put together with various musicians throughout his long standing career. Gordon was well known in Vermont for his contribution to the music world and helped contribute to recording/touring artists such as Phish, Max Creek, Pine Island, Breakaway, Al and the Trans-Americans, Michael Hurley, Twiddle, Srutidarpan, The Decentz among countless others. Proceeds from the digital sales of this record will go on to support Backline.care which is a mental health and wellness hub for musicians and their families. Gordon was kind and loving, always sharing his knowledge to those who had shown interest. We are honored to be a part of his last musical gift to the world.
