For nearly a decade, Pat Thomas was the A&R Director of the
San Francisco based record companies;
Water Records (CDs) and 4 Men With Beards (vinyl Lps). These two reissue
labels established themselves via reviews and features in the New
York Times, Billboard, Mojo and on NPR: All Things Considered as one
of the premiere reissue labels - focusing on 1960's-1970's rock, jazz,
folk, and soul.
