All is well

I contacted Customer Service. Then, a couple of days ago, possibly in response to my post above, CS contacted me by email and the same day RT V1 No1 arrrived, bonus disc and all.

I am totally delighted by this release, and recommend the Good Lovin on disc one to anyone who wants to know how well GD could rock. It is an absolute ripper! The sequence leading up to it is pretty good too.

Happy Trails

Road Trips take time

rrussell8 - I recommend that you contact the Dead Store and ask for a replacement to be sent. None of us got these discs from the pre-order "shipment". While we have never received an explanation I suspect the blame lies with some "fowl up in shipping" which is what I was told last time I had a problem. If only they would stop employing poultry!

Stop whingeing, Kenny, at least you have yours. I'm still waiting.

Gots that wrong!

For some reason, I've had in my mind that last night's game was at the MCG. What the hey - it was still bloody fantastic. We're on our way - 3-0 and cooking.

*************

OK so I got my replacement copy of Road Trips Vol1 No1, including bonus disc. You all got yours by now? Sounds pretty mushy to me.

And now there's another one out already, 1977 so much more to my taste. But $12 for shipping still frigging irks me. What do you reckon?

*************

See y'all on Sunday.

Oooohhhh ... I'm excited!

OK, so I wimped it as far as getting a ticket goes, figuring there's LONG way to go until a World Cup berth is in the bag. A lot of games to come.

Still, I'm really looking forward to tonight's opener with Qatar, even if I will be watching irt at home with Bennie.

It's staggering that even after the Asian Cup debacle and lousy season for Melbourne Victory, the MCG is still gonna jammed to the rafters. So many intriguing, unknown aspects.

Go Socceroos!

Ahoy!

Heck, bring the missus - what could be better than following up a wedding anniversary with the chance to hang out with a bunch Melbourne Dead Heads? :) I hope Burt does Sugar Magnolia for ya.

I just posted this at Jazz Corner:

About fucking time ...

When I went to see the Hitmen just between NYE and Xmas, I opined to a friend that the most anxiously awaited - a wait strateching into decades - reissue in my life was the mid-'80s classic Pilgrim's Progess by Melbourne outfit Harem Scarem.

At last.

It's here.

Back in my life - and making my hair stand on end, sending chills up my spine and giving me multiple cases of goose bumps as I write.

Put out in a masterful reissue by Aztec.

Oddly enough, the balls to the wall, Stonesy guitar riffing sounds perfectly obvious; at the time it sounded like rock 'n' roll cataclysm to me, such an invigorating blast was it. Still sounds awesome, though - simply a brilliant rock 'n' roll album.

Chris Marshall's singing bears comparison with the likes of Tim/Jeff Buckley - any tendancy to the pretentious is swept aside by sheer bravado and passion.

The arrival of harp man Chris Wilson, drummer Peter Jones and guitarist Barry Palmer - all future fixtures, along with the other guitar man, Charlie Marshall, on the Australian scene in years to come - lifted a workmanlike Melbourne blues/rock outfit into the stratosphere.

Melbourne Meeting

It's my wedding anniversary on February 9th: Dinner at "Silks" followed by "An Evening With Burt Bacharach" at the Melbourne Concert Hall. So....I should be good for a leave pass on Sunday. See you all then!
