Cory With His Tearaways CDs

It’s the morning after the September 26th benefit for Cory at Soho in Santa Barbara and Cory is listening to “Girls Who Love Cars,” one of the tunes that the Tearaways played live on stage at last night’s show.

Cory commented on the catchy melodies and polished vocal harmonies of the two new Tearaways CDs, Tearaways Earl Mankey Sessions, Volumes IV and VII.
