My dad, Music Legend Roger Read, passed away in October 2005.  His church music and organ recital material "Praise Service Accompaniments" / Cecilia Recordings is not currently available, but may be so again in the future.  In the meantime, please email me with any enquiries.  His personal site - "Slim Read" - features his popular authentic "British-style" rhythm & blues band "The Slim Read Blues Allstars".
