Drums of War: Peace Song for 12/11/2011

That's Sonny Meadows, on the right. (Love those shades!)

It’s the last day of “Sonny Meadows Week” at Peace Couple! (If you have not headed over to CD Baby to check out his work, and get copies for yourself and as gifts, you should do so now, while you remember.)

at CD Baby: here.
(Drums of War is Track 4)
