It’s summertime. It’s hot. I don’t feel like writing. Instead, I’m having fun playing with the camera (and listening to music, of course). The playlist speaks for itself this week.

Looks like some great summer listenin' there, Rodger!

The big blow-away for me this week was my finally getting to the 1974 Mahavishnu live stuff with the second lineup--man that is killer!! I was, I have to admit, dreading it a bit because of the presence of Gayle Moran, but it really cooks, and I love the way the strings fit in.

@Liz: Thank you! :)

@Sam: Wow, you know, I sent you all that Mahavishnu stuff, but I don't think I ever actually listened to all of it. If you think that highly of it, I really need to check it out!
