Sorry, been in a mini-crunch of work lately and haven't been able to post. And when I do have a spare moment, I've been doing some blog housekeeping -- adding a nifty gadget I just learned about, which you'll find midway down the column on the right: LABELS. This will allow you to search through my older posts by artist or by topic. Not everyone I've written about is listed, I'm sorry to say -- couldn't make the list too long or it'd be no use. And I'm a little embarrassed to see how the list reveals my musical obsessions. But hey, if you're into Nick Lowe or Ray Davies you'll know where to go. . .
