Archiving Larry's Work 

Exciting news!

The Penn estate is working with Larry's favorite recording studio, SurroundInSound Studios and Engineer Jonathon Luebner to catalogue and ready Larry's vast archive of unreleased material. 

It is hoped that this music can be uploaded and made available on the Larry Penn site for sale as download.

Imagine that, lots more fine Larry Penn Music that most of us have never yet heard before. 

We wish Godspeed to Jonathon as he works to finish this noble task.
