'Leave My Little Girl Alone'
Recorded live at Matt Barnes & Jann Browne’s wedding. Danny & three other wedding guests (some of whom had never met) took the stage and pulled this off pretty well—there might have been some drinking involved. Danny doesn't dig in until after the keyboard solo...
'Black Rose of Texas'
Danny on slide, electric & acoustic guitars & backing vocals. From Dave Alvin's 'Eleven Eleven' CD.
"Ott comes off as a guitar hero of the first degree, able to serve up everything from flashing acoustic runs to notes that fall like teardrops on a honky-tonk floor. A marvelous player, he has more delicious tones and shadings at his disposal than a gambling cheat has face cards...his sizzling soloing simultaneously rings like a bell and tears like a saw."

Danny on lead guitar. Recorded live at the wild Swallows Inn, San Juan Capistrano.
