(slight return)

Erik and I go back years, even though we've never actually met. (We even were part of my first collaborative blog.) (We came close to meeting a few years back, since he's a Mainer and I lived for a while in godforsaken New Hampshire, but alas, 'twas not to be.) We've slipped out of touch ("I'm out of time...") for the past few years, though, and he seemed to depart this mortal blog coil for some time, too. But now, thanks to my webstats, I discover that he's back. Hurrah! (Also: Erik, do you realize that as we age, we're looking a lot more alike?) While we agree on precious little music-wise, his writing is a dream, his thinking even moreso.

We agree on Jam and Lewis and the majesty of the Time - does it matter whether or not I give a hoot about Shania Twain? (though she was a great plot device in "I Heart Huckabees")

Glad you found me; I hadn't gotten around to letting people know I was back. Nice live album write-ups by the way - though, to disagree as I always do - I'd take Sam Cooke over Re-Re as the greatest voice in soul in the last fifty years.
Hi Erik!

I agree. Sam Cooke has one of the finest voices I've ever heard.
Hey Paul!

It's old home day in Thomasville.

Stylus failed me today with that "Harlem Club" ranking. Sam Cooke's "Bring It On Home" on that album is the definition of soul, and makes it a top 10 live album in any just and truthful world.
