I think if you listen to the song again, the E in Bone is silent.

I remember when that song first came out. My son was just beginning to talk and used to sing it when I played it. When he sang it it was more like "bad atta bone" It was really quite cute.

Black Sabbath - Cross Purposes (1994 IRS Records)

This CD has a very laid back sound as far as metal albums go.

I finally got around to spinning up my Great Organ Works disc again. Track 11, Fantasia in C minor, has this bass note that goes on forever (like much of the track) thats really cool.

I put on ELPs debut album afterwards to see how the bass in it compared. Clotho is right up there with the Bach Organ disc. I was also impressed with the dynamics. I flipped on the ratshack meter during The Three Fates and it ranged between 66db and 96db with lots of 15db swings throughout all 3 pieces.

Started listening to an unabridged reading of “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. It’s been awhile since I’ve listened to audio books so it’s neat. Sort of reminds me of listening to radio serials.

Wow, that's a lot of listening.

I have trouble with audio books myself. I find the static voice detracts a bit from my imagination developing mental images of the characters.

I tried a couple where there were multiple actors doing voice overs, so to speak, but let's just say they should have stuck to being waiters.

They are a great alternative medium though. Definitely a wonderful thing for the vision impaired, elderly or people with dexterity issues, long road trips or people who just enjoy the style.

I'm in the mood tonight to uncork a Porto and enjoy a nice album/cd music listening tonight. I'll probably stop by a borders on my way home to get a couple of new cds. Any recommendations?
