Remember at the time of "Come And Get It", there was a nut in NYC who was giving away money? Turned out he had a lot less than he'd claimed to, but at the time I thought that song was about him. Since then I think I heard that was just a coincidence.

ahhh, i don't have that - but, i am trying to be a completist in that realm - not very good on the wallet, tho
  Sat. 10/13/18 11:22am clarke:

reason why i ask about that particular one, is that i happened to see it used - which was strange for where it was. i already have it, should have bought it again
  Sat. 10/13/18 11:22am Miles:

catchiest thing I've ever heard

Went to see the Cactus Blossoms last night and couldn't help but think of you, Michael :) Can't wait for their next record, believe they said they were wrapping it up. I'm no authority but it sounded like there was at least one number one hit from their new tunes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 10/13/18 11:25am Frank In Queens:

Horrible for the wallet! But I'm about 14 away from the "cannon" 102. But there are some expensive ones in that missing lot.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 10/13/18 11:27am Frank In Queens:

@clarke: Crying Your Knife was pressed on a bunch of different color vinyl. So if you're a mental case Bob collector (like me), you'll need all the different colors.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 10/13/18 11:31am Frank In Queens:

@clarke, Bob's dialed it back a bit in terms of the side projects, except for his lame country-comedy "Cash Rivers" thing. But it turned out to be a good investment. The first LP is going for over $150 on Discogs!
  Sat. 10/13/18 11:32am clarke:

oh yeah - but you would never sell, riight??

I was just thinking about how well the sentiment of "Guys & Dolls" holds up cross-culturally. From what I've seen, remarkably well in that women seem to have more expensive and exacting tastes than men. Anybody know of a culture with a notable exception to that?

  Sat. 10/13/18 11:57am clarke:

i am an ostrich, but i HAVE just learned that lindsey is now suing FMac - a bit weird. guess it is his way of revenge.
  Sat. 10/13/18 11:58am clarke:

although very convoluted and drawn out revenge, methinks...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 10/13/18 12:00pm Uncle Michael:

Revenge? I'm not sure I'd see it that way. One presumes he's a partner in Fleetwood Mac LLC and that he'd have a say in such matters. The lost income is considerable. It just seems like business to me.
  Sat. 10/13/18 12:03pm clarke:

well, it is an attempt. LB's premise is that he was to put out a record - but then, he didn't/hasn't. of course, one can say that the firing delayed it, but c'mon.
  Sat. 10/13/18 12:04pm clarke:

and, believe me, i am a buckingham sider in all this - had Fmac not chosen THOSE TWO exact guys they would be written off by me!!

Hey, Michael, really great interview! And yes, all those kids you see playing on the streets in New Orleans are 'Travelers'... they leave for summer, and are generally considered a nuisance by locals who live in the Quarter and have to listen to them argue all night with each other (like I did). But yeah, was good to hear his take on it. Thanks!
