    Thank you, Delilah! Excellent research, once again.

    I had listened to the album on Spotify, but didn't know which tracks Randy sang on and couldn't hear him, to be honest.

    It's not one of Bob's best IMO - I don't care for the production, personally. My co-worker actually said it was so bad it was motivating her to get her work done so she could leave We are still friends.

    So did Randy actually sing and play bass for They Might Be Giants on one of their albums? According to the notes on this YT video, he did. The band members are known to have a dry sense of humor so maybe it’s just a kind of a joke (?). However, an article about Randy’s imposter from several years ago also made mention of a collaboration with them.

    Here’s the video:

    !!!!!!! My gosh, Delilah, I don't know what to say. There is the Elektra connection. Great song, by the way.

    I'm flummoxed.

    Randy's participation on this track isn't cited on the album's Wikipedia page (not authoritative by any means) nor the more detailed This Might Be a Wiki http://tmbw.net/wiki/Apollo_18

    Thanks for those links, NMB. I haven’t been able to verify it independently myself. It’s something that could be shrugged off as a mistake but then why would the imposter article specifically mention this particular band?

    Another Randy mystery, lol.

    Randy and Allen "Charlie" Rich contribute backing vocals on several tracks of Jimmy Stallings' 2005 album "Adios," including the title track. Mr. Stallings was a member of the Sir Douglas Quintet.

    Thank you for this NMB! How great it is to hear Randy on something “new”! His vocal is definitely recognizable. Since this was released in 2005, is it safe to say this is the last official recording in which he appears?

    The Sir Douglas Quintet vibe is strong here.

    Yes, excellent point Delilah - this would be the most recent recording (that we’re aware of) publicly released. IIRC, Randy did some recording with friends (Art Ford being one) circa 2017, but I haven’t heard anything more about that project.

    Not sure what to make of this. Randy’s producer from his first solo album, Alan Brackett, released an album in 2018 and cites Randy as one of the players on it. The album is named Transitions Post Peanut Butter Conspiracy.

    From the PBC webpage:
    Once again the majority of the recordings were made in Alan's 6' x 13' garage recording studio with some of the finest young musicians of the time. A teenage Jeff Porcaro on drums on many of these songs is just one example of the young musicians Alan took under wing. Jeff, of course, went on to play with Toto, Steely Dan, and scores of other top recording artists and is considered to be one of the best drummers of all time by his peers. Other great players include Chris Pinnick, guitarist with the group "Chicago", Randy Meisner of the "Eagles" and on and on.

    This release includes descriptions of who played on every song and where they were recorded.
    https://www.peanutbutterconspiracy.c...ewreleases.htm

    The Amazon link has an image of the album showing a track list that includes Randy’s song “I Really Want You Here Tonight” (recorded at Magic Wand). Is this the same recording that appears on Randy’s album? What or where is Magic Wand? Does Randy appear on any of the other tracks? So many questions!
