I have a bunch of projects in the works (both writing and otherwise) and therefore have nothing to offer this week. Sorry about that!   I did, however, make a couple more videos for The Vinyl Community this week. Just me obsessing about records. That's what I do...

Funny to see Happy the Man on your playlist. I've been meaning to work on converting a live recording I've got of them from Williamsburg back in the day that totally blows away their studio albums, and had it in my mind to give you a copy. I'll work on that and get it to you. They were a snappy band, and the glory of Kit Watkins' keyboard playing never translated well to the studio (either with Happy the Man or Camel).
