Jacob Scarr first played with The Flood in the fall of 2007 when he was just 14 years old. Eventually he joined the band as its youngest member ever, playing with us until 2011 when he left for college in Boulder, Colorado. These days, we don't get to see Youngblood nearly often enough -- he's busy as a first-year law student at the University of Colorado -- so one of our joys at Christmas time is Jacob's annual homecoming, when he always makes time for a couple jam sessions with the old crowd, and he's sounding better than ever.

Doug Chaffin was still a teenager when his daddy bought him a brand new 1958 Gibson Les Paul. Now, more than 50 years later, Doug's still got that guitar -- heck, he's still got the original sales receipt! -- and on special occasions, Doug brings that beauty out to jam with The Flood. Last night was one of those occasions.

Charlie's cousin, Kathy Castner, brings the holiday spirit with her on her annual Christmas visit to the Bowen household, and, if we're lucky, the visit coincide with a Flood gathering, as it this week. Now, Kathy sings in public only a couple of times a year -- usually only during these Huntington visits -- but, wow, listening to her beautiful voice, you'd think she was singing every evening. Here she's shares her rendition of "The Rose," with wonderful solos by Paul Martin and Doug Chaffin.

When we introduced the new "Live, In Concert" album earlier this month, several Flood fans asked if it was still possible to get the band's earlier CDs as well. And the more they talked, the more we realized that, heck, maybe we ought to box 'em up for the holidays. So, we've rolled out The Flood Six Pack! Right now you can get all SIX of The 1937 Flood's commercially recorded CDs (from 2001 to the present) in one package for $59.95. That's more than a third off the regular retail price. Let's see... it's 15 years worth of music, so that's $4 a year…. or, whoa! a penny a day. Hey, it's math -- we can do this all day long… It's also nearly eight hours worth of tunes, so if you want to celebrate Take Your Floodster to Work Day, man, this is all you need! Come to our website, 1937flood.com, to read all about it. Meanwhile, here's a snippet from each of the half dozen albums in the collection. Enjoy.
