Googling 6870 Miles

October 14, 2004

A couple years ago, I did a google search for "6870 Miles." That was the name of a recording project I was a part of at the time. Two songs resulted from that project.

Anyway... I decided to resurrect my Google findings from the past and see if I could find some more. Here you go...
