You know a LOT, Timster... that's why everyone in chat always asks you stuff. (If anyone wants to know anything, doesn't matter what it is. just ask Timster - no doubt he can tell you.) Trust me on this, everyone... it's tried and true, and has never failed me (nor anyone else, as far as I know!) P....

If you like what you've heard of ELH, Kush, you might want to investigate an album or two of hers. I have 7 or 8 or so.. haven't been disappointed in any of them, so far. She has a great version on "Cowgirl's Prayer" of LC's "Ballad Of The Absent Mare"... only it's called "Ballad Of The Runaway Hors...

Thanks JTS! I don't know much about Ronnie Lane, nor do I have any of his albums - have only heard his work on a few compilations made for me by a friend a few years ago... but what I know of him, I really like - his music sounds so plaful. I guess I should try to dig up something of his... do you r...

Sounds really familiar. Is he the one who did a great version of that wonderful old song, "Gonna Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter"? If so, then yes, I must be a fan. Oh.. and I just thought of another song... "Bottle Of Brandy".. did he do that, too?

I agree that the Knopfler/Harris album is a bit bland, but I discovered that it sounded much better during my recent road trip. I love both artists, individually, and in duets, and I got the new album a few days after it was released - having been pleased with their appearance on Imus. The album is ...

They were having a lot of fun, so I liked it. (We've all "been there"... )

Hi Kush, Thanks for letting us know about Tom Russell's new cd. I had no idea he had one. I love love love "The Man From God Knows Where". Tom Russell is a relative of one of our Cohen cronies, Tom Bohan (page 2 in the Gallery) from my home state, Maine, who never comes here, or to chat, but who goe...

Jarkko... good to see this online again. If you remember, I first saw it when you posted it to the NG years ago, and it was gone in a flash, before I could save it to a jpeg. When I wrote you about it, you were so kind and thoughtful to send me my own copy (which I printed and framed, and has been h...

Both those airlines have great fares, but be very mindful of how much your luggage weighs... it will cost you much more than your flight, depending on how much over their weight limit it is. I found out the hard way. Just ask Henning - he had to lift my suitcase into the car in Frankfort. He remarke...

Thought of you today Tim, when this record was released in US. I was going to look into the chat this evening to see how you liked it, but, you know - got home late, got caught up with other things. Anyway, I heard a review of it on public radio today, a very good and lengthy review, which included ...

Thank you, Jarkko.... very much appreciated. I vote for a white background with black text, same as it used to be, but any dark text would be fine.

Thank you, Tri-me, Kush, Tim, and Tony... good to learn a few things I had no idea about. Tony, the Silverstein site is indeed worth having a look at. As recommended, I read the lyrics to Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe (both the long and short) - and yeah, he really did have quite an understanding of the ...

I really liked Tony's response, too. I like all of his responses, but this one was particularly good. He has an exceptional gift for speaking volumes, together with using very few words. A gen-u-wine sharp shooter. Hmmmm.. speaking of wine.

I've always been somewhat of a fan of GL, ever since The Wreck Of The Edmond Fitzgerald... just his name conjures up fond memories from years and years ago.. but I was wondering which, from the list you provided, Tri-me, are songs he has covered/recorded, not just ones he has written - or vice versa...
