    Interesting non sequitur:

    Checking to see what playlist my listed tunes were on, I notice several Irma Thomas tunes being skipped, grayed out with the message “this song is not currently available in your country or region.”

    They sold them to me some time ago, but now won’t let me play them?
    Sweet. They rescinded ownership.

    CDs anybody?

    I have had the same issue lately with some iTunes purchases. I was happy to go to iTunes because now I don't buy them I just pay the monthly subscription to them rather than serrius or xm but if I buy something it will be a cd or downloaded and burned to a cd.

    If you're a bit like me it was probably the first song. I had always thought to Simon and Garfunkel as the signers for this but these guys really harmonized it well.

    Well, I just left the Suzi Quattro topic, so I guess, Stumblin’ In.

    And the The River Flows Jorma/Hurlbut.
    as well as a Jack McDuff disk.

    It was the “Shells” thing that I expected to loathe, but fit my mood at the time. At least the bits I heard.

    Listening to: Albert Castiglia Red Tide Blues.
    (to keep this post from being another one of my total digressions)

    I didn’t check if the tainted tunes were something transferred off my CD vs bought online.
    (I accidentally buy music I already have on CD here & there, which adds up).

    Using the cloud for overflow? This is why I won’t use Apple Music.
    It screwed up my digital collection after a 3 month trial, playlists I put some effort into.

    Watching the Hurlbut/Jorma concert via youtube.

    My wife keeps on me for finding more music I must own.
    They quoted Roy Bookbinder to good effect on the topic of whether you could fill up an iPod with all the great songs ever written in existence. I must admit there are a few more than the 500-1000 I thought could qualify. But I’m getting close.



    The quantity of great songs may be close to that number,
    but there are alternate interpretations of that 1000 which are superlative.

    After the Beatles, Graham Parker is my favorite artist. I bought Stick to Me for 88 cents in a cutout bin over thirty years ago. Happily played it today.
