No need to explain who Dale Lloyd is: this blog is full of references to his works as well as those released on his own labels.
Concerning the second aspect, three albums published both by and/OAR and either/OAR in 2011.
Our favorites list mentions two of them: Lugi Turra's Ki and Kraig Grady's Our Rainy Season / Nuilagi, but, quite honestly, others could have been included in it, considering the value of each new release on these catalogues.
