    Anyone here a Michael Parks fans?

    He was the actor with "Then came Bronson" and actually put out 3 very good albums from 69-71 with MGM records. His work is really good, I like his singing and the productions were great.

    Anyone have any of his music?

    I have been searching in vain to get ahold of the master copies or at least a decent transfer. Michael seems to be unreachable and I have the works on vinyl...although they were tracked on an unsuitable cartridge from my Dad loaning them out so they are not happening for archiving.

    I especially like:

    Ride em cowboy.
    Mountain high.
    Lone lonesome highway.
    Re-enlistment blues.
    Big t water.
    Softly and tenderly.


    If anyone has an MGM contact, I am greatful.

    This was nice art and needs to be preserved.

    Well, he must be reachable in some fashion, as he just played the sheriff and the old pimip in "Kill Bill 2", and he played the sheriff in "Kill Bill".

    I've got one of his albums here. I think it's Long Lonesome Highway. If I find it clearing out things then I'll check the quality to see if I can do a transfer for you.

    My copies were too abused by crystal cartridges tracking at a dosen grams to be salvageable. If I kill the surface noise, the top end rolls off about 3K and no happy medium.

    If you can..and I have plenty of time, I would appreciate it.
