Steven Grossman is one of my gay music heroes. Not only for the quality of his music, but he was the first artist to have an album with lyrically gay material released on a major label. The label was Mercury and the album was called "Caravan Tonight," released in April of 1974. This show is about the release of a CD of material recorded by Steven Grossman in early May of 1991, about six weeks before his death, on June 23, 1991. It took 20 years for this material to make the journey to CD release, and you'll hear the story by his friends, and the album's Producers, Richard Dworkin and Judith Casselberry.

I have known about this material, and have anxiously been waiting to do this show for many years, and in the meantime I've set up a number of pages of my site to honor his work. The
design of this page is therefore sparse, as there is everything I could find here:
Steven Grossman Tribute Section

I am also taking this opportunity to present some very rare material by Steven, such as a rare interview (from 1977) and some rare live concert material, and...a real treat...a rare concert
video from 1975. You can find a link to it in the Tribute Section.
