    Outley Park Drive:
  • Part Time Love (by Outley Park Drive)
  • Timeless (by Outley Park Drive)

    In 2006, the band “Outley Park Drive” recorded and released these two covers of Michael Spiro originals on their self-titled CD. The personnel consisted of Spiro’s twin sons, Julian on electric violin and Corey on electric guitar, along with Brad Bartelme on vocals and Ari Warner on drums. “The Mysterious Daddy-O” (guess who?!) played bass on these two tracks, and mixed the CD. You can see a video of OPD performing Part Time Love live in concert on YouTube.
