Can't you listen to them online, meanwhile.. Napster, or something? I hadn't heard that before, about JDG's music being Country and Eastern... very cool. Yeah, I love his version of Mack The Knife. and the cd it's on is most always in one of my "listen to regularly" pile. I can't remember exactly fr...

Hi SWITZ... I've had a difficult time, as well, trying to find the Jan D'Gaetani cd of Cole Porter songs. I really love the soprano voice, too, especially on dark and drizzley Sunday mornings. On just a slightly different note, do you also like the counter tenor, Yoshikazu Mera? But anyway... Jimmy ...

Hey Kush... Hope for Lu.. ? ... in your very own collection... ? Be still, my beating heart! Heheh... Well, let me make a suggestion, then. Have a look (listen) to her most recent release (must be from at least a year ago, by now) "Live At The Fillmore". There's nothing like Lucinda live... those wo...

Hi Kush... Hank Williams, eh? Well then. I only have one of his, Essential Hank Williams. But I'm wondering now if you know about the tribute album, "Tmeless". Really good... it has, for example, Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, Keb Mo, Bryan Adams, Hank Jr., Sheryl Crowe, several others I can't recall of...

That wreath of flowers, Norwegian concert... must have been around midsommar, I guess. I love the summer solstice celebrations in Scandinavia. Somewhere, I have one of those wreaths of flowers, which I made all by myself - with a bit of instruction in half English, half Swedish... hmmm... I wonder w...

I heard a little tribute to Syd on the radio today - said that sometime in the late 60's, after taking a lot of LSD, he suddenly gave up music. He walked from London to Cambridge, to his mother's house, moved in, and had been there ever since, going on 40 years or so. They said he never played the g...

Henning.. thought of you a lot today, after I heard of Germany's loss to Italy. I wondered how you were feeling... tried to call this afternoon, but the phone just rang and rang. Anyway, I figured you were happy for Andrea and Marco. Seems you and Elke have no message machine, still. Well... I figur...

Woo hoo! You're back! I'm so relieved you're feeling normal again, g. This was like opening the pages of the old newsgroup when it was in it's hey day, and turning an otherwise ordinary day into something else again, altogether!

Welcome back, g.

Margaret and Timster.. I hope you decide to go, and very well you should while it's handy to you! I saw the original one in Brooklyn, June 2003, and probably the best concert I've ever seen. Weird how it's all changed since then, though - when Marc and I went, the admission fee was a $3.00 donation!...

Hi Kush... really pleased to hear of your new acquistion! Still liking it? ELH has often performed with The McGarrigle sisters. Check out "The McGarrigle Hour" cd, if you don't know of it already. Really a fun record. ELH is mostly in the background, but the record holds up on it's own, for those of...

Been watching you from the sidelines, Ebub... heheh. ;--) You always did have that very funny way with words, and now I'm really laughing. It's a talent and a gift! Will call you soon. Butt not on Wednesdays.
