New Recordings from the Pukalani Penthouse , Maui , Hawaii . A New 2 CD package of Original Music … which also includes a 15 minute jam out medley of B.B. King’s “the thrill is gone” into the Rolling Stones’ “miss you” into the Grateful Dead’s “shakedown street”

These new recordings are heavily influenced by my love of soundtrack music that allows the listener to drift along w/ an extended musical landscape … as well as my love of Beat Poetry … having included a few Poetic pieces set to music that were not originally written as “songs” per se. I also venture into some funky grooves , as well as some old school classic singer songwriter folky tunes. I believe you will find the music intriguing with many varied vibes to take you on an imaginative journey amidst this crazy and stressful time in our lives and history.

Randall’s Officially Released CD’s :

****   SEPT. , 2020  …  Pukalani , Maui , Hawaii   ****

My  State of the Art Communique … the crazy Covid 19  Pandemic has changed our lives forever.  As a musician who performs almost every day … as my job … as a living … as my desire … as my soul dictates … Live Performances on Maui stopped abruptly at the end of my last official gig  on Tues. March 17, 2020 . Upon playing the last note of a 3 hour non-stop set @ Beach Bums, Ma’alaea on Maui’s South Shore , I was informed by management that they were going to take a week or so break due to the dangers imposed by this deadly virus.   Well , needless to say … time has passed.  In order to avoid madness I began recording live sets = much like my live performances … on Prince Kuhio Day March 26.  Having compiled a rather substantial collection of new jams , I decided to release them as  “The Prince Kuhio Sessions”  a limited edition 2 CD set that has had a 3rd outakes CD added in response to the overwhelming generousity from friends , fans and seekers of … just what Randall’s  New While sounds like.  So … if time and inclination peak your interest … YOU may open your ears and minds to my antique music listening format known as the compact disc.  Hand designed , created and packaged by yours truly … 20 very limited edition sets  … with just a few sets still available .    YOUR support and interest will be greatly appreciated at this disparate time for performers , musicians and artists.  I wish you and yours safety and Peace & Patience Amist the Limbo !   w/ aloha always  Randall  … the Pukalani Penthouse

“THE NEW WHILE”

Aloha Update Nov. 16, 2019

… my upcoming CD project  “the New While”  has been expanding rapidly w/ a constantly new cache of songs and recording scenarios and no capacity for completion by the end of 2019.  So in the meantime and to round out the year:   a quick “Ltd. Edition Bootleg” is being prepared for interested parties.  It will close out 2019  w/ demos proposed for the new final CD and include some classic recordings that I personally feel proud of and would like interested parties to have the opportunity to either re-aquaint       themselves with or discover anew.    as per usual  … you may email me for this soon to be completed CD.   Shipping will begin Nov. 27.

Peace B.w/U   w/ Aloha Always Randall … Pukalani, Maui

Aloha Dear Friends :

*** NEWSFLASH *** All CD’S are available direct
from Randall … Do It Now … email: randall@randallrospond.com

“cRaZy WoRLd” CD Released Dec. 1. 2017 :
In order to follow creativity’s path … I have taken on a new recording project.
Many folks have requested a CD which features my “Live Guitar Looping: Solo Performance Sound”

I have captured a clean yet live sound in my home studio.                                                                                                Capturing single takes of my latest songs without overdubs.
These recordings are an honest representation of my live solo performances.                                                            Some were self engineered , while other cuts were engineered by Byron Townsend.

To release a new CD and not include my varied bandmates & formats seemed … well    … limited.
So I expanded this project to include my groovy trio:                                                                                                                 Danny M: Bass   &   Kerry Sofaly: Drums
w/ Joel Katz engineering. … this became the bulk of the CD  … humbly = live magic 
Wayne Westcott helped me engineer a living room recording of the Haiku Hillbillys
w/ Sue Westcott: Violin ,  Rand Coon: Banjo ,  Kerry Sofaly on light brushes

due to the severe madness of our times and the critical chaos of America …
I have included a 1987 home studio recording including studio overdubs etc.                                                                  “All the Preseident’s Men”
self engineered in Canmore, Alberta in 1987 … check my math = 30 years ago !!!!

here’s what folks have said
about our new CD:

“Nice slide work on the record.
  Makes me feel like I’m
  in the Pacific Northwest.”
  … Joe Caro, New York City & Maui

“Just listened to your CD & Loved it.
  Great variations in your music. I heard
  a little Jimmy Cliff, some Van Morrison
  & definitely Grateful Dead – but in a
  style uniquely yours.”
  … Mona de Crinis , Maui News

“Got CD & associated Artwork, Loved
  it All, especially the Reggae Infused
  Positively Vibed, Country Soul Songs !”
  … Ken & Donna Mosley, Spring, Texas

“I find it Intriguingly Beautiful & Enjoy it as
  Background to a Dynamic Maui Winter
  Sunrise.”
  … Martha Vockrodt-Moran, Makawao, Maui

“Great w/ Reggae Deadlike Jams”, Lovely
  Lyrical Imagery & Emotion, Versatile & Tight
  Guitar work throughout.”
  … Con O’Regan, Ontario, Canada

Front Cover

RANDALL’S     2012 Release     ” THE LEGENDARY UNKNOWN ” 

Originally a “solo troubadour” recording , but creatively expanded  … the title is derived from a lose       creative theme that is partially inspired by a most misunderstood character & outlaw: Jesus … as well              as humorously referring to my music career.  Not religious or dogmatized   …  just gently spiritual.

The songs question, suggest freedom & offer acceptance … while honoring the need to boogie & share      some “good ‘ol pickin’ & grinnin’
