Re: L.C. Song Hunt

After much lurking and thinking and struggling, I've come to the conclusion that I am not smart enough for this game! :lol: :roll: :oops:

Re: Musicians on Live in Dublin

I realise that it's ineffably tedious for those of you who've known Leonard for 40 years and attended every concert on his recent six-year tour to have to listen to the witterings of someone who is only just discovering him for the first time Not at all...I'm enjoying your postings, even if I haven...

Re: Popular Problems merchandise

Has anyone in the US received their CD/t-shirt bundle? I ordered a couple of weeks ago and expected it arrive on or around the release date - or at least thought I would receive an email about shipping by now. So far, nothing. Anyone else?
