The French Hotel Cafe CD -- Marc Silber and Tom Bruce
The old cafe is gone, replaced by Cafe Senz at the same location. Most of the original staff have moved on but some of the old crowd can still be found there. This site remains as a memory of earlier times.
This CD is dedicated to the workers at the French Hotel Cafe, Berkeley, California, USA.
