This un-edited recording has never been released.
"This [contest] track was the original tracking take, and the solo was played live with the band", said Kevin Shirley,
Producer for Joe's Sloe Gin CD. "As I recall, we later did another solo on the end of the record, as we wanted to
get more of an early Fleetwood Mac vibe. As always, Joe's live solos are what he's about."

Kompoz is an online social network designed for music lovers to create songs with others from around the world.
Kompoz members span over 120 countries and all 24 time-zones. Kompoz is a music collaboration site with features
that enable distributed music creation. Meaning this: songs are created in layers -- drums, bass, guitar, keyboards,
vocals, etc. But very few people play all of these instruments, so it's hard to create a complete song unless you're
part of a band. Kompoz solves that problem. Kompoz provides the platform to create songs with a bass player in Sweden, a
drummer in Ohio, and a guitar player in Kalamazoo. The world is your virtual on-demand recording studio.
