Canal Zone Music

Robert Bryan: Last Man Out

Robert Bryan's first CD dedicated to Panama and the old Canal Zone.
He has described his music as a cross between Jimmy Buffet and the Doobie Brothers.
The title track is a heartfelt good-bye to a special time and place.
Listen to this one first. Spud approved.
