I had been looking forward to the weekend in Phoenix but family first, I've been planning a trip to see my daughter in Flagstaff -- was going to go that week so I could take in the show while I was down there. I realized about three weeks ago that this probably wasn't happening, so I pushed it back...

Lovely sentiments, jardine . I, too, started "paying attention" fairly early on. December 6, 1977. My brother bought My Aim Is True on his birthday. It grabbed us immediately, unequivocally. Who could have possibly imagined where the path would take us over the following 40+ years. All I c...

I vaguely recall that there were multiple copies of #00001 popping up back in the day. Jake Riviera, being Jake Riviera, I believe.

I wouldn't bank on Costello's vocals at 10,000 feet. (I believe Gillian Welch performed "White Rabbit" somewhere at high-altitude in Colorado a few years back -- and thought better of it, after the fact.) Hate to possibly curse him and all, but he's never really been one to back down from ...
