- 1976 vinyl LP "We're Only Here for You" by acoustic duo "Nichols & Raymond" on Soul Deep Records in South Fla.
- 1988 limited release cassette by "Rowdy Duty" (Your Duty to be Rowdy).
- 1997 "Ego Trip" limited release CD as my alter ego Shifty Gears. I played and sang all the parts plus engineered and did the liner graphics. Truly my personal ego trip.

- 2004 "Warts and All" a live limited release CD by my last band who took my alter ego Shifty Gears as its name.

I have been influenced by many people including the 60's British Invasion, Van Morrison, Love, Frank Zappa, 10cc, the British New Wave, Elvis Costello and Ween. Most of my favorite artist wrote in many different styles as I have tried to do in my own writing.
