"Sonntag 10 April 22, Palm Sunday. Asa Brebner cd
I am not gone volume two. track eleven is "Tit
for tat" by Garr Lange and the Folsom Brothers.
Garr Lange on vocals; in '80s he did alt-country with Garr Lange
and the Big Rig. you can "like' him on facebook, I think
I wrote. you can friend Mark Sutton on facebook;
he does guitar and harpsichord and was in THE RINGS! (Rolling
Stone about '81 said they were "neo-cars" but hey, major
label etc.). Greg McCleary is on bass/drum/keyboard;
a mass Art grad,whom in '87 started Heart Bunch Studios in Allston;
map coordinates looks like "Dead Boston Club" The Underground.
Pedigrees aside, this is a superb gospel-r and b Stax-Volt sounding
toon; I-IV-VI for the chorus and I-VI-II-V for chorus and then
that bridge! buy the cd, money goes to Asa's kids, I still got
ten weeks and ten tunes to go, I should only live so long...'...

Palm Sunday part two. (exciting day off). Matt Burns of
V gave me a $25 gift certificate to Somerville
Grooves of which I cleaned him out of $2.00 world/folk/country
albums (TO be reviewed!). Also, tossed in FREE ("Let's call
it even"....) was Me by Elton John (bio, hardcover)
October 2019 release; I know I saw it at Harvard Coop pre-lockdown
(can I go there again?) and October 2019, maybe I opened for 999....As
I listened to my two years ago bought Somerville Grooves Monkees
albums, I read Sir reginald KENNETH book and (giving away the beginning)
the Long John Baldry stories are funny and flamboyant! Also, reading
Bernie taupin's lyrics for first tyme; "kinda Tolien-esque,
like "whiter shade of pale"....hmmmm… maybe Bernie
and I could write "Twin Cities of Elton's mind"...…."......

"Dienstag 12 april 22. BBC-Four has "Teatime"
British comedy. (it's
on the site). This was 1830 in the evening so 130 pm "back
in the states". Bumper music: "when I get home",
a 1966 45 off a Spencer Davis Group album I had more than Fiddy
years on. Autumn '66 was the UK release (26 August 66; my father
left for 'Nam the next month). The 45 released then also. September
1966, this song was performed in The Ghost Goes gear: it's on
YouTube (the song) and imagine Corporal Ed Wood di-recting hard
Day's Night.....watch it!".....
