  • Welcome to this on-line catalog of the music of
    Barry Drogin and Baruch Skeer
    (Not Nice Music is no longer representing their music)


    Due to close of business, the Typhoid Mary/Alamo! CD is no longer being offered for sale (as I would have to collect sales tax).
    The remaining inventory is available for free - just send an appropriate SASE to the address below or arrange to stop on by and pick one up, while supplies last!
