Credits & Thanx

First of all, all credits & thanks to the musical work of the genious Don Drummond who still not got the right reputation in musical history. It's a shame that is still going on. Hope this site help showing how massive his musical work was and still is. It won't be possible to find all his recordings and compositions. However I & I enjoy all known work and keeping on to celebrate yu music. Wherever yu are now Don Drummond I hope yu Rest In Peace. As far as I know, there is no grave. May the future accept that you're musical work is still influencing the music and rehabilitate what you've done. Who knows why you killed or didn't you killed? I heard so many different stories about you're life. What is true? I only know, I love you're music. Thanks 100 years after and on and on.
Many thanx to Alain Salvi for all his work and all the research.
