    Congratulations to Alex Allan on his knighthood. Officially it is for his public service including as the UK Chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee. But we know it is for his services as a Deadhead, prioprietor of the Grateful Dead Lyric And Song Finder (www.whitegum.com) and author of sleeve notes for the Europe 72 Set.

    definitely!
    one suspects this was not on his mind back in the day. Or any other time either. But it's well deserved and it's a treat to see. (And folks, if RT comes to your town and you have not seen him, check him out, and not just because the Queen likes him now!)

    Gratefaldean - in my experience of sending vines, shipping to the US normally takes 10 -14 days so you should get it soon.....hope you do anyway. I have not ordered 'Live at the BBC' yet, but I should do.. Does Thompson live in California now? I had no idea. Anyway he does indeed looks pleased to get some recognition from his home country. Good for him; he is right up there with the best of them..

    I thought he looked pretty pleased about the whole affair. Good for him, not bad for a California dude, by way of London, England. So...I ordered his new Live at BBC box from Universal in the UK. Received a shipping notification on 6/14, hasn't arrived yet. CB, how long should I wait before I start getting nervous? No idea what a typical overseas delivery would be, and no tracking info either...

    A serious award for Richard Thompson
    http://www.richardthompson-music.com/catch_of_the_day.asp?id=1350 And I was listening to 'Pour Down Like SIlver' when I saw this on Eurotraders. So what's it like to become part of the establishment RT? Did you tell the Queen you would meet her on the ledge?

    I like it too, Dean! This conversation could get quite controversitous, just as long as we don't get derisoversatious as well! ********************************** I am not young enough to know everything. Oscar Wilde
