No. It's not, really. Otherwise, I'd never have replaced my original mono Meet the Beatles.

Pops and crackles = funkill.

Yes, but I'm sure you prefer them when they're standing still---and within arms' reach-----so you can fondle them or punch them, nes pas.

Absolutely, Karen Carpenter had that lovely throaty contralto voice with a bit of a rasp in it, dead-on pitch, much like the Canadian equivalent, Anne Murray. What was that huge hit for Karen C, "Rainy Days and Mondays".

Tragic story for Karen Carpenter.

Ok, Ok, less than a page before untracking....THE funny thing is I was watching Sinbad on the comedy channel. At the end of the routine, he challenges the young'uns in the crowd that they don't know what "Real, Live Music" is. So, he brings out a band and tells them they can tell their kids some day that they heard "Real, Live Music" at the Sinbad Show. They play guitars and drums and piano and that is it. What makes that the funny thing is that I had been thinking the night before that people from my generation know guitars, drums, and piano but not the horns, and woodwinds and the "bass fiddle" (that the axioms allowed me to pick out).

So...Tom, where did you see The Big Band Sound?

Well, various times, not often enough.

There's a local outfit called Rich Wetzel's Groovin' Higher Jazz Orchestra that takes no prisoners. I've enjoyed them at a number of venues.

I remember seeing the Woody Herman Big Band about 30 years ago = at Disneyland. That was extraordinary. Woody was recently deceased, but the band was still amazing.

I used to attend summer outdoor jazz festivals in the area where I saw some great acts - including Joe Williams in both big band and small ensemble settings. He made a big impression on me. I've seen The Basie Band, Lionel Hampton, and lots of smaller, local/regional groups.

I dig it.

I used to watch the Captain and Tenille's tv show when I was a kid and I love them. I think Tenille sang on a Floyd album.

I think it's great when Carpenter and Captain fans come out of the closet...so to speak. I'll admit to having Lulu on my Ipod.
