Editor's note: this is not a good album. In fact it's so bad that it's hardly an album at all. It's greeting card verse set to music. The singing and playing  are okay if you're into the Afternoon Special upbeat positive butter churning bullshit. Otherwise, it's pure rubbish. Though, I Think of You is passable as a love song for a hooker.

pardon my triviality but let me start by saying 'wow' -- your blog was one of my favourite destinations , back in the day , and i could hardly believe it when i noticed that it's back on - i just remembered it a few days ago and i thought about revisiting it again to bring back some old memories (actually , one of my favourite hobbies years ago was smoking a big spliff while reading and appreciating your ,sometimes hilarious, sometimes instructional, review and of course listening to the music) - i can't express how glad i am that you decided to revive it once again -- if it's not too much to ask , i'd be tremendously happy and grateful if you could reupload some albums that i missed the first time

Flattery will get you everything just not in a timely fashion. Thanks for coming back just the same! I'll look through my tangle of horribly labelled files and see if I can track these down. I'm guessing that I should have most of them.

Rocky Barra's record has been re-upped. More later tonight (possibly) after my 11 hour shift. Egads.

i agree it sounds like flattery but i meant every word i wrote - i guess both are not contradictory
thank you so much for all the reuploads
cheers

Nah, you were fine I was just being a sarcastic prick. I also didn't forget the other two LPs I just can't find them on file. Luckily, for you, I found them in my stacks of vinyl and will re-record them when I get some time. I had time last weekend but spent it with the goddamn flu. Thanks again. I really do appreciate the readers despite my Trumpian disdain for all things.
