Where can I get the latest TFJ music?

You guys have been saying that for years. When can I buy Chuck and Louise 1 and Chuck and Louise 2?

Hey! Relax. Time flies man. We have new lives now. New priorities. However, we love our music and love you guys for supporting us (morally and emotionally). The music will come out.

Dude, you can tell me. Is it a music rights thing? Are you guys pissed at each other like McCartney and Michael Jackson?

Hell no. bbarry, Mike Miller, and John Underwood love each other and long for each other's company. They are also joint owners of the copyrights for all of the Family Jewels songs. Any reproduction, retransmission, unauthorized use or sale may result in legal action.

Whoa! I didn't say I was going to steal or anything! Relax!

You relax. We're just saying. Look, we're understanding people. We let a lot slide. However, the band worked their asses off for 10 years, self-financing their own tours and albums. Recouping money is hard to fathom, but the music is copyrighted and protected by law.
