Blues Jam @ Joyceville Institution (1991)

I'm often asked about the "good times" of doing time. I usually tell people that in the 30 + years of being in prison, I can explain the good times in less than five minutes. The bad times would take me years of review. Playing my harp with Brendan Rooney, who died shortly after this jam session, was one of those good times. A pattern always seem to emerge that ended our good time - that's when the overhead speakers blasted out ..."All prisoners return to your cells for count!". Sadly these days, budgets have replaced music rooms with more cells and bigger guns. ~Ricky Atkinson
