I like that selection.

It puts me in mind of the group of discs Gordon Bennett would come back with on a Saturday.

Yes.
Ua = Ru is a very usual mistake. "Wild Is The Wind" song is by ?Dimitri Tiomkin? who was born in Ukraine (not Ru), Natalie Wood is Ukrainian (not Ru).

Oh yes.

All of that makes sense.

There is another terrific version of the magical Wild Is The Wind by Nina Simone.

I want that Thunderclap Newman one. I bought a few last week. About 30 this year alone. Ten Years After live, Kilburn and the High Roads, West Bruce and Laing among others.

John Lennon's widow wrote to me for therapy to overcome her tragic loss. I replied,
'Dear Prudence - Aisumasen (I'm sorry), Dear Yoko,
Good morning, good morning from me to you. I imagine out the blue it's so hard you're crippled inside. Nobody loves you when you're down and out, not even Her Majesty, so you gotta carry that weight. Oh Yoko! How do you sleep? How? Whatever gets you through the night? Do you twist and shout? I want to tell you, woman, there's a place to cry, baby, cry - yah yah - while my guitar gently weeps too. Think for yourself, for no one else within or without you, of cold turkey. It's easy if you try, yes it is! No beef jerky, savoy truffle, honey pie (even wild honey pie) and it's just like starting over, because, girl, all you need is love so we all shine on. Just give me some truth! This'll please Mr Postman, who doesn't mind games, and I don't mean Mr Mustard, who's just a jealous guy. Goodnight.
Doctor Robert, Yesterday, from strawberry fields back in the USSR to New York City's Attica State, via Penny Lane (Meat City)
The End.
PS I love you... Here comes the son, so love you too, Mother's beautful boy (darling boy). Love me do, this boy, just because I'm mother nature's son and my mummy's dead.'

Sorry Michael but I avoid long posts. I saw the first couple of lines though.

Dana's album "My Time", released on 1 November 2019, is her 32nd studio album since 1970. She's 69. Having come through a cancer scare and, with deeply conservative politics, two failed bids to be President of Ireland, and something close to a breakdown, she's gone back to music. A few songs are written by the group The Rua who are her nieces and nephews and apparently like a cross between the Cranberries and the Corrs. Some others are covers. She wrote another of them with her son. So far, so not entirely unpredictable Then it gets weirder. The keyboard player is in High Flying Birds and was with Oasis. The piano player has worked with George Michael - it was Michael who gave him a recording contract - as well as, Prince and Julian Lennon among many others, one bass player worked with Blondie and wrote their song "One Way or Another" and the other worked with Lou Reed for the last 15 years of his life. The drummer was in Tears for Fears and the guitarist is allegedly the modern day version of Jimi Hendrix. The result? Pop rather than cutting edge rock - but it's contemporary and it is a significant departure for her. And this does make it an interesting and rewarding experience.

Since you lust after the Spicers,I didn't think you were that picky.
