Daydream Believer, one of the best songs ever written. The Monkees were wonderful. more power to Robert Wyatt.
I'm trying desperately and so far unsuccessfully to get "Daydream Believer" out of my head. "Release Me" seemed a viable earwormish alternative, but it provided only a momentary respite.
Humperdinck. There, last call...

by the way, i hear Englebert Humperdinck (damn it Al, you've got me typing it now!!!) is going to be the UK representative for this year's Eurovision song contest. thought you might like to know...
happy friday too!
Hot off the presses, mostly covers (yes, it's THAT "Release Me" most famously covered by Englebert Humperdinck...that may have been the first time in my life that I typed "Englebert Humperdinck"), very country so far.
I do love me some Lyle.
I been listening to a lot of Greensky Bluegrass, Richard Thompson, and John McLaughlin lately -oh, and the late, great Etta James.

McGuinn is on my brother's "must-see before they (or I) die" list, so we are seeing him in about three weeks. I have seen McGuinn just once, in 1974 or 1975, can't remember when, when he was touring a band called the Thunderbyrds. Catchy name, that.
