Okay folks, I think by now many of you have become aware of the very difficult challenges facing Sherry Littlewood, the wife of Capt Skipper. In order to receive the necessary medical treatments that she is receiving, she & Skip are limited to no more than $1,100/month income. Because of that, Skip is unable to work and as you might imagine, things are getting very, very tough for them. Skip's really a proud guy and had asked in the past that the information about Sherry's health not be made widely known.

I can tell you all, that when I approached him about individuals sending direct cash support, or offering things for auction, or the fundraiser that Brent Sibley is planning, that Skip is so totally grateful for this help. He is deeply touched that folks here would rally to his family's aid. They really are in a desperate situation.

Because of the income restrictions, checks or wire transfers etc CANNOT be made in Skip's name. Instead he has asked that all things be directed to their eldest daughter. I am still waiting for her mailing address from Skip, but that is a head's up, if you're willing to help, it's gotta go to the daughter.

This truly is an amazing place, filled with wonderful individuals, non moreso than Skip. So many people have stepped up in the past, and present, to help Bob O'Briens wife and daughter, Bill Ector's children and Tyler Seaman. It fills and enriches my soul that so many kind, caring and generous individuals are willing to step up when another's fortunes and wellbeing are suffering.

When Bob's family was in serious financial crisis after his passing, a number of folks here supported the family with direct donations and auctioning off items (there were photos, guitars, concert posters etc, really a fabulous variety of things).

I see Great Scott has already stepped up with a couple of concert tickets. Bravo!

I intend on supporting Skip & Sherry directly, but, I'm also going to run several auctions of items, this being the first.

What I am offering as a package is the following:





DTB "Already Free" cd, the "Best Buy" version with the three additional tracks included, "Chicken Robber," "Delta Raga" and "Long Time Man." This is a factory sealed, unplayed copy.


plus


DTB "Selections from the DVD The Derek Trucks Band: Songlines Live!"

This is also a factory sealed, Sony issued cd (this is not a cdr, it is a legitimate record label release), live cd taken from the DTB 1/28/06 Park West in Chicago performance that became the dvd release "Songlines Live!"

This disc was issued for promotional purposes to radio stations to get further exposure and support for the Songlines dvd release.

So, basically, this is an "unreleased" not generally available legitimate DTB live cd. I got mine through an eBay auction. Again, this is a sealed, never before played copy.

The songs on the cd are:

Key To The Highway
I'll Find My Way
I Wish I Knew (How It Would Feel To Be Free)
I'd Rather Be Blind, Crippled & Crazy
Sailing On
Soul Serenade
All I Do
Mahjoun
Greensleeves
Crow Jane
Sahib Teri Bandi/Maki Madni





The starting bid is what I already have in the discs. So, let's start there and show Skip some support.

This auction will run until 7:00 central time this Sunday April 12th. Post your bid in this thread, do NOT PM a bid to me.

Once over, I will PM the winning bidder with information on where to send the check or money order. Once I receive payment, the item will be sent to the winning bidder and the money will then be sent to Skip's daughter. If sending a check, I will PM you the name to make it payable to, and in the "notes" area write DTB cd auction.

The bidding is starting at $35. It's now up to y'all.




(Note: Skip has asked that his daughter's name and address not be openly posted on the website, so, if you need to know for purposes of this auction, or another, just PM me and I'll pass it along.)
