Hit songs by new Jacksonville artists

In 1999, Attitude Records contacted Jacksonville musician, musicologist and recording engineer Mike Fitzgerald about an interesting project. The idea was to have current North Florida musicians do covers of past hits originally recorded by North Florida musicians and songwriters. Musicians volunteered to play and began cutting the tracks at several First Coast studios. But, as happens in the industry, the record company went under and the recorded songs sat on tape in Mike's studio gathering dust.

We're happy to be able to release them here for educational purposes. They're in mp3 format.
