Old Recordings

To those who have inquired about obtaining some of the old recordings that Cliff is on… If you click on the page of recordings that Cliff contributed on, you will find that some of those older recordings are still available. However, I have posted MP3 files for the songs from records long out of print. Please enjoy for yourself but copyrights still apply should you wish to utilize them for anything else.
