Rocky, I found it on line and listened to a few samples. Pretty good stuff!
Here's a page with some samples off Wes Montgomery's "Bumpin'" you can listen to if you have Windows Media Player...

I always associate "A Quiet Thing" with rainy weather as I used to listen to it a lot when I lived in Oregon back in the early '70s.

>George Harrison, Concert For Bangladesh, Ravi Shankar right now.

Dandelion, I loved The Rifleman so I'm dismayed. I don't think it was on purpose.

B-Two, thanks. I have dial-up so it is sloooow and cuts out but thanks just the same pard!

Fanboy, recently got a hold of a bunch of Tull on vinyl and c.d. I would definitely go some way if I were you. Work will undoubtedly still be there after the show, not sure how long the band will be though. Do yourself a favor and go! Rock-n-roll, whooo-hooooo(holding up lighter....)!

Hilarious - I love it!

Reminds of the "not such a good idea for a Harry Potter statue" picture:

Once again, I disagree with dandelion, and now with Doug Spaulding.

An innocent eye sees nothing wrong with either the rifleman comic cover or the Harry Potter statue.

Once your innocent view of life is broken, you have to fight to keep an innocency about you, but at the same time, you keep an eye out for what others may want to deliberately convey. I venture to say in both instances, The Rifleman comic cover and this statue were creations of someone that did so innocently.

Case in point:
Read (or re-read) Ray Bradbury's short story masterpiece, 'The Illustrated Woman'. Find there a completely innocent scene of great effect: a bare woman is presented to the reader. Yet what we see is an innocent glimpse!

How did he do that? Intuitively innocent with his prose? Or written that way on purpose? Should have asked Bradbury. His answer would have been valuable.

You mistake mine for an innocent eye.

That makes them even funnier!

Nard: Give it up! Your views fall on deaf ears. A rorschach test in simple comic covers? Who'd think?!

Doug, yes George Harrison was an amazing man, musician, and loving soul. He was awesome! The Beatles were amazingly awesome for many many reasons and on many many levels!

I agree with Nards assessment on the Rifleman.

WildGravity, I want to try some Smashing Pumpkins, never have explored them much. I know several people who think them the bomb.

>I almost forgot, Neil Diamond, Love At The Greek. I think B-Two recommended this to me and I finally got it on clearance for fifty cents. Maybe it was Doug, not sure. Thanks though, is good.

This may not be for everyone, but if you ever followed Frank Zappa, here is a classic exchange on "Crossfire." It almost seems like Monty Python in a few exchanges, but it is all on the level. Witty and thought provoking discussion of censorship (an always significant topic here):

Yes, he was a beautiful soul, and indeed the soul of the Beatles.

I loved when All Things Must Pass came out in 1970 and he more than proved to any remaining doubters that his songwriting talent was equal to Lennon's & McCartney's.

Loved the Wilbury's too, by the way!

Well, if it wasn't me, it should have been. In fact, ND's Hot August Night may be the best live album ever! Rarely has an artist held his audience in the palm of his hand like he did then, and does at every show, really. Have seen him live twice, and he's got every bit as much charisma as Elvis ever did, if not more.
