A Grammy For Dennis?

I got a message from Al Gomes who has been succesful in getting a number of  listings on the  Grammy Award ballot for the Adam Marsland band tribute album to Dennis and Carl Wilson -including the first songwriting recognition for Dennis Wilson. I reviewed this album earlier this year, and it would certainly grace the Grammy nominations -not only is it a tribute to Dennis and Carl but showcases the talents of Adam Marland, Evie Sands and Alan Boyd . If enough people make a noise about this, who knows what could happen -calling all those who are Grammy voting members, or know any.

Details of the nomination from Al
