State of the blog

Greetings! My apologies for the lack of activity at this blog--I do hope to get things going again, and soon. What's been happening is that Music You (Possibly) Won't Hear Anyplace Else has been taking all of my blogging time, AND things have been unusually hectic hereabouts. Time is hard to find. Newsweek, too. Chortle, guffaw.


Anyway, I'll do my best to restart this site. Meanwhile, my thanks to, um, Anonymous for pointing out that Jesse Crawford accomplished A Precious Little Thing Called Love by his lonesome--I was afraid that might be the case, but I couldn't find specific disc. data for the track. My ears told me the xylophone and piano were the real thing(s), hence I referred to the other two musicians. (As it turns out, Jesse 2 and Jesse 3.) A calculated risk. Not knowing enough about theatre organs, I didn't know that these instruments often (or as a rule?) had xylophones and pianos literally built into them! Not synthesized, of course, but the genuine, actual sounds.

There. I think I covered my be-hind pretty well. (Oops. I didn't mean to type that out loud!)

Seriously, I appreciate corrections. It's like free knowledge for me--an unbeatable deal.

And I have got to get this blog going again....

There's lots of blogs, more every day it seems (many running index stuff from assorted places including Vietnam). Oh yes, I( look at everything but the number of blogs is expanding to the point one has to deal with the best.
I have enjoyed your informative "educational" style, giving a historical perspective which appeals to an academic like myself. Hope you can spare some time for this blog, without being under pressure.

Byron and Savoadaki,

Thanks for the words of support! They're appreciated. As I type this, some VL files are (almost) ready to go.
