Please note: the / Research Records contact address has changed. 


July 8, 2007

We just received a "new" CD from Lynnet Hardwick of Van Buren, Arkansas.  The recording is from 1987, contains 19 tracks, and includes unreleased material.  Much of the recording seems to take place in "The Lab" studio in Rantoul.  The mood is casual, and Rob banters quite a bit with an implied--though probably unseen--audience.  The disc was transferred from cassette and then re-mastered.  Sound quality is very good.  Contact us if you're interested in obtaining a copy of it.

And thanks, Lynnet!  It's a blessing to have this new material.

Robert's music broadcast on the BBC!  (That's right, the British Broadcasting Company.)  Broadcast on Sunday night, Robert's music appeared on Steve Stockman's BBC radio show, Rhythm and Soul.  The show is based out of Northern Ireland.  You can hear the entire broadcast online here:

Robert on the BBC (Robert's about 35-38 minutes into the show).

We've found a sound engineer to help transfer a great deal of Robert's music from cassette format to CD.  (He's even doing so on a volunteer basis!)  This will be an on-going project.  Thank you so much, Patrick Tittmar.
