Re: Watching EC perform "Black & White World" made me think.

Yes and thanks, didn't know that about flirting kind! elvis' talk about standing in a circle with the new c.d. and facing each other when they recorded reminded me most of sinatra at his peak (even the fedora) standing amidst the orchestra and recording basically live. does anyone know how North (th...

Re: Watching EC perform "Black & White World" made me think.

i'd like to see a live performance of North, with the song of the same name, impatience, and young hung the moon as encores. especially since hearing you hung the moon on the new c.d. i think he could better interpret those North songs now.

Re: Has your NR CD arrived yet?

now if it was the 78s coming by canoe, that might make more sense, sort of....we need to establish a small prize or recognition for the person who waits the longest.

real question is, will it come before something else is released?!

Re: Double Albums

p.s. that makes spike almost double the length of revolver. i remember when mc.cartney started doing solo stuff, the real issue for me at the time was that sometimes his songs were pretty good even though the quality certainly did dip, but they were 4 minutes long or 5, so i'd get through two verses...
